Zion offers Sunday School instruction for everyone ages 3-adult. Come learn with us!
Sunday School Classes are held each Sunday, September through May, during the Christian Education Hour, 9:30-10:30am. (Fall session begins Sunday, September 11th, 2022.)
There are classes for 3 year olds through 8th grade.
There are also Bible Classes during the Christian Education Hour for High School students and adults. The major goal of these classes is to present Jesus Christ as God's Son, come into the world to rescue man from sin and death as well as to promote a certainty of God's eternal, undying, undiminishing love for us, His redeemed people. Depending on the age of the students, the Bible lessons are enhanced using crafts, recitation, and music. You may call the church office for more information at 708-946-2271.
Some of our yearly events and activities include the following:
Christmas Service The Sunday School students participate in a Christmas Service on a Sunday just before Christmas. All students witness with their songs and recitations. Following the service, all children in attendance receive a bag of fruit, peanuts and candy.
Easter Service The Sunday School students participate in one of the Easter morning services with songs and recitations. This usually follows the Easter Breakfast held in the Fellowship Hall.
Service Projects – Gospel Outreach Used religious materials are collected throughout the year to be sent to missionaries in India and Africa. Items include Bibles, Sunday School material, devotion booklets, hymnals, Bible story books, prayer books, greeting cards, CDs, bookmarks, etc. Part of the Sunday School offering pays for the postage.
Lutheran Missionary Support Each year a group is supported by our Sunday School offerings. (In previous years we have supported missionaries in Africa, Seminary students at Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, and Lutheran Association of Missionary Pilots.)
Lutheran World Relief School Kits Each fall Sunday School students bring in items to complete School Kits which are sent to the Lutheran World Relief warehouse in Minnesota and then sent overseas. Each kit includes spiral binders of lined paper, 6 pencils, eraser, pencil sharpener, small box of crayons, blunt scissors, 12 sheets of construction paper and a ruler placed in a homemade school bag.
Christmas Cards for Military Sunday School students sign Christmas cards and include a short note for soldiers overseas.
