Come to build relationships and grow in your faith!


We are continuing the midweek program that was designed for families with young kids (PreK-5th Grade).  Twice a month (2nd & 4th Wednesday nights), we will meet for a time where kids and parents will grow in their faith together and will develop a family here at church. We want to encourage spiritual growth in the kids and parents Christian identities. If you have young children, bring them along, this is a casual setting.


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.



We meet on Wednesday nights from 6:15 pm – 7:30 pm in the Sanctuary upstairs at Zion Lutheran and then head to the Family Life Center for activities and time to dig further into the topic.



Contact DCE Intern Lauren at 319-393-2013 or email her at lauren.white@zionhiawatha.org if you would like a paper registration sent to you or if you have any questions.
