Zion Kids Announcements
STARS: EVERY WEDNESDAY EVENING 5:45-7:30 PM; STARS resumes on Wednesday, January 6, 2021.
SUNDAY SCHOOL: 11:00 AM-12:00 PM
Drop in Homework Time at Zion
We have bandwidth for 20 students to do their virtual class work and homework in the cafeteria. New tables and chairs, socially distanced, are available for participants. This is one way we can help students will no internet at home. Days and hours will be announced once the district finalizes their plans. We're looking for tutors to help with reading and math. Zion will be open Monday-Friday from 9-3pm to assist with homework.
Wednesday Night STARS returns September 9 for grades 4-12.
What? No programming for younger kids? Right now, because of COVID concerns, we do not have enough teachers available for the younger kids. If you'd like to help us, please let us know and we'll add back as much as we can. We really need some men to help with 4th and 5th grade boys as well. Older kids will have the option of a Bible track or Youth Group track. Thanks to Mizo Youth and Elim Lutheran Church in Randall, Iowa, we will be able to provide reading tutors for a select number of elementary school students.
Sunday School: 11:00
Due to concerns about the virus, we haven't enough volunteers to run our usual Sunday School. We will offer both a virtual and an in-person option. The in-person option will look and feel like Vacation Bible School and will be held in the cafeteria and outside. As always, we need more volunteers.
STARS Christmas Party. Keep it a secret, please. As in the past, we’ll be asking for donations for our STARS kids to receive Christmas presents to be given the second Wednesday in December.
