We are still missing some Club 56 & Confirmation registrations. These are essential for the safety of your children and our church, so we can contact you when necessary.

If you haven’t yet filled one out for your child, please do so ASAP! You can use the form included in the bright blue CYF Ministries packet (located outside the youth office and on the welcome center) to register or do so via our website www.zion-stewartville.org/forms. Any questions, see Anna!


Take some time to look at your calendar for the coming months and help your youth find 2-3 times they can acolyte in the coming year. The sign up is on the youth office bulletin board.


In the coming month, we will have sign ups during Confirmation for help with these two events. Youth can sign up to help out and families are also invited to these events!
