ZION FAMILIES TOGETHER (ZFT) – Midweek Program

 

Have you heard about what is going on at Zion?

 

We have started up a midweek program especially for families with young kids (PreK-5th Grade).  Twice a month (2nd & 4th Wednesday nights), we engage kids and parents in activities and discussions that will encourage spiritual growth in their Christian identity.  If you have young children, bring them along, this is a casual setting.

 

REGISTRATION:

ONLINE- You can register online with this short questionnaire: CLICK HERE

PAPER- You can also request a paper copy or pick up a copy thru the Church Office.

 

WHEN:

We meet on Wednesday nights from 6:15 – 7:30pm in the Sanctuary upstairs at Zion Lutheran and then head down to the Sunday school area for breakout sessions and family  crafts.

 

QUESTIONS:

Contact DCE Ben at 319-393-2013 or email him at DCE.Ben@ZionHiawatha.org if you would like a paper registration sent to you or if you have any questions.
