Zion will be teaming up Pathways to put on an action packed four days of relational (a ratio of adult to camper 1:6), renewal (of new ideas, songs and energy), outreach (reaching out to our sister churches of Redeemer & Trinity) and fun (filled full of singing, crafting, playing games and exploring your faith)! For this fun faith filled experience to happen we are going to need volunteers and host families for the pathway counselors.  If you feel called to be a host or volunteer, contact or 218-681-3296.

 ELCA National Youth Gathering Registration will start 9-15-17 through 11-15-18. ELCA National Youth Gathering will be June 23-July 2, 2018 in Houston, Texas. Youth that are eligible to attend are in 8th—12th grade at the time of registration. Contact if you are interested in going. Fundraising is a big help with this event.

 IFA The youth will be getting ready for the ELCA National Youth Gathering Trip that will be taken place in Houston, TX June 27th-July 1st, 2018 A great way to insure to go on the trip is to build up an IFA…  What is an IFA? Its an Individual fundraising account set up with the church to help off set the costs of church activities. Who has one? All kids that are little lambs through 12th grade.

How can I contribute to my son or daughters IFA? Watch for the churches bulletin and Newsletter for any up coming events to work. Good examples would be flapjacks for faith and rummage sale. Option two is fundraising, like how the youth were selling calendars earlier this year. We will be seeing more fundraising. There is option three which is to contribute money directly to the IFA.

 Thank You to our Muffin Makers:
