Rally Sunday: Sunday School is Back
Sunday, September 11 — 9:30 am
Rally Sunday will be September 11, 2022, and we look forward to seeing YOU! Here's some of what we have planned:
At 9:30 am, Sunday School for ages 3 through 5th grade will meet in the Peace Room for a short gathering time. Then the groups will divide into classes according to age.
During worship, we'll have a special back-to-school blessing for our younger members. Kids, if you'd like to bring your backpack for the blessing time, please do so!
After worship, ZLCW (Zoar Lutheran Church Women) will be serving cookies, coffee, and a kid-friendly beverage. (There's also a rumor going around about doughnut holes.... Yum!)

Christian Education Opportunities
for the Whole Congregation
Last fall we began a congregation-wide immersion into the biblical narrative of salvation using a multi-age curriculum based on Dan Erlander's book Manna and Mercy: A Brief History of God's Unfolding Promise to Mend the Entire Universe. Listed below are some of the ways we will continue to explore and deepen our knowledge of Scripture and God's saving plan for this world God so loves.
Sunday School: This coming fall, in addition to having and elementary-age Sunday School, we'll also be offering a preschool class!
There's a special energy that happens when God's people are together in one place, so we're very excited and hopeful about re-introducing Sunday School in the classroom! Of course, we're prepared to make adjustments and go online, if there's an outbreak of COVID.
While the preschool class will be exclusively in-person, the elementary class will be going hybrid this year. This means that we're hoping most of our families will have their kids join us in person, but we'll also have an online option for young friends who live at a distance, who are not feeling well enough to come to church, or who may be out of town for the weekend.
Thursday Morning Bible Study: Led by Pastor Michelle Manicke. Meets at 10:30 am on Zoom. Our group has decided to do a deep dive into the biblical salvation story using Manna and Mercy as our study guide.
Thursday Evening Women's Bible Study: Led by JoAnn Rothi. Meets at 7:00 pm on Zoom.
