MAY YOUTH HIGHLIGHTS

TO COME IN JUNE & JULY

Summer is here...

...and so comes adventures, camping, sports camps and weekend family time. That's part of the fun of summer!

While you're out and about this summer, we'd love to see you in worship at 9am on Sundays. However, we know summer is a busy time! We encourage you worship wherever you are at if you can't make to Zion. (Bonus: You can get a jump on those sermon notes!) ;)

Below are some fun options we have for Zion youth this summer!

ZION FAMILY FIESTA NIGHT

Join us this Wednesday as we enjoy taco-in-a-bag, lemonade and freezies while celebrating a week of VBS. All are invited to this freewill offering dinner!

Bonus: there will a bunch of outdoor games, a mariachi photo opportunity, face painting, and a PINATA!

Come and go as you please from 5:30-7pm! There's no need to sign up ahead of time. VBS kids will be singing a few songs at 6:15pm!

ZION VS ST JOHN'S 2ND ANNUAL KICKBALL GAME

Sign up outside the youth office or email Anna if your youth will need a ride!
