Zion will be open Monday-Friday from 9-3pm to assist with homework.
Wednesday Night STARS is for grades K-12.
The 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 K-3 elementary school students.
Sunday School: 11:00
