Christian Formation for all ages!


Growing in Christian discipleship is a life-long process.

This growth is nourished as we pray, and serve, and learn and explore our faith together.

One Congregation, One Book


This summer, the Zion congregation is reading a Wrinkle in Time. Activities related to the book are on-going in the parish hall. Read and participate with us in preparation for a 'fiel trip' to view the new movie coming soon!


Church School for elementary age children takes place at 9:45 a.m. on Sunday mornings  three Sundays per month.  The children join their families in worship in time to receive communion together. We use Godly Play to share the stories of our faith with our children from K-4. Middle school aged youth in grades 5-8 will be using Echo the Story. One Sunday per month, all generations worship together for the entire 10:00 a.m. liturgy. These Sundays often include a children's sermon. 

Middle School Youth follow the Echo the Story curriculum to engage with Scripture as it applies to their own life. This group meets three Sundays a month and serves once per month as acolytes and readers.

High School youth meet twice per month on Sundays from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. to explore and discuss our faith. During worship on Sunday mornings, all youth are invited to participate in the liturgy as readers, acolytes and ushers. 



Childcare for babies and tots is provided for all forums and for the 10:00 am liturgy. All those in ministries with children, youth, and other vulnerable people at Zion undergo background checks. Zion follows Safe Church Practices.


Adult Faith Formation

Adult discussions of the week's Scripture readings are held Sunday mornings between services, from 9:15 a.m. until 9:50 a.m. Forums and field trips are offered periodically. 


Hunger 101, an experiential program from the Connecticut Food Bank, will be hosted by Zion at 11:30 on May 28th.
