Zion’s Sunday School program is offered September through May on Sunday mornings from 9:15am to 10:15am. Our Sunday school begins at age 3 with our preschool program and goes through the 5th grade. Our Sunday school utilizes the Spark curriculum which is liturgy based following the church calendar. Our students also receive the Spark Bible during their 1st grade year which coincides with the curriculum as an interactive Bible which teaches the students how to open and use their Bibles. Our students also have other learning opportunities during the course of the Sunday school year by attending our computer lab, going to our movie theater, and participating in our music program. Every year our Sunday school offers a Christmas program as well.
