Rotation Church School Opportunities

Church School is a growing and thriving ministry here at Zion. We have three church school sessions available: Sunday morning at 9:35 and Wednesdays at either 4:15 or 6:30 p.m. Classes are held throughout the school year.

Here at Zion, we use the Workshop Rotation Model for Church School.  In a nutshell, the Workshop Rotation Model teaches major Bible stories and concepts through kid-friendly multimedia workshops: Art, Drama, Music, Games, A-V, Puppets, Storytelling and any other educational media we can get our hands on.  We teach the same Bible story in all of the workshops for four to five weeks, rotating the kids to a different workshop each week. And here comes the extremely teacher friendly part: We keep the same teacher in each workshop for all five weeks teaching the same lesson week after week (with some age appropriate adjustments) to each new class coming in.  After five weeks, all groups will have rotated through each workshop.

The kids are guided throughout the year by shepherds, who take attendance, help manage the kids and assist the workshop leaders if necessary. Each group has the same one or two shepherds throughout the year.

For more information on the Workshop Rotation Model, please visit www.rotation.org.  Please consider volunteering to be a workshop leader, which is a short commitment of 4 or 5 weeks, or a church school shepherd who commits for the entire school year.  To volunteer or find out more information about Church School at Zion, please contact Education Director Chris Torgeson.

Nursery Ministry

Our Nursery Care Ministry is for the youngest of our church family.  The nursery is staffed for both Sunday worship services as well as anytime there is faith formation/educational opportunities happening (Church School Sessions, Confirmation, etc).  Our nursery staff is ready to play with and care for your young children.  We invite parents to utilize our nursery.  This will give you the opportunity to engage in other activities happening here at Zion including adult faith formation groups, serving in the church school or confirmation ministries.
