Camp Cilca Mission Trip Update

Camp Cilca Mission Trip
Who can go? Anyone who has a heart for serving who wants to grow in their faith in Christ. MIddle-school and younger should bring an adult with them. High school and older (even MUCH older) are welcome! All may bring friends, family, Facebook friends, and other human beings.

What's the cost? We are going to charge $200 to cover expenses at the camp, a night in a hotel and a day pass to Cedar Point. Part of that figure will help subsidize fuel costs for those who are generous enough to drive. You'll need to have money on hand for our time in Chicago and a day at Cedar Point (including food). Even at $200, the church is kicking in some support for you to go on the SUMMIT.

Youth Group Trip

Mark your calendars for June 25 – July 1!!

The Youth (and any willing adult chaperones) will be going to Lutheran Island Camp in Henning, Minnesota for a week of work, play, fellow- ship and ministry! Sure to last a lifetime, the memories we make will help us grow and apply our faith. There are several surprises along the way you’re sure to like.

Details to come... Cost: $275 + gas. (Yep, we’re DRIVING... ROAD TRIP!!!)

Zion Lutheran has fellowship, fun, and service events for 7th-12th graders.

 7th and 8th Grade

During the school year, we have Confirmation Instruction on Monday Nights.  6:00 for 7th grade.  7:00 for 8th grade.  At the end of Confirmation Instruction, we will have a retreat for our Confirmands-to-be. 

For those not familiar with Confirmation Instruction, this is a 2-year program designed to teach the basics of the Christian Faith to our children.  At the end of the program, the Confirmands may, if they wish, join the church as a Communicant Member.  We do not believe that being Confirmed is necessary for salvation; rather, it is something the church does in response to Christ’s command to “baptize… and teach all things…”


9th-12th Grade

90% of people who become Christian become a Christian before they are out of High School.  The Church’s ministry to its youth is its most important ministry.  Zion Lutheran Church is excited about its developing youth ministry that provides meaningful opportunities for high school age young adults to grow in their faith and apply their faith through fellowship and service.   From Sunday School to mission trips to fellowship-focused fun activities, Zion Lutheran Church is investing in its future leaders!
