Zion Lutheran Church Bible Study

Zion Lutheran Adult Activities are about learning, serving, and fellowship.

At Zion Lutheran Church, you will be encouraged and nurtured in our small group activities for adults, as well as in Sunday worship.  We invite you to try out some of our many opportunities available. Newcomers are always welcome!.  Please call the church office or check the church calendar to find out specific times for these activities. 

 

Learning groups

  • Adult Sunday School: from September through May, we meet after the worship service to study scripture and what it means for our lives today.
  • Bible Studies:  September through May, Zion has two week-day Bible studies. One meets two Wednesday mornings each month and the other meets two Thursday mornings each month.
  • Thirsty Theologians: This group meets once each month at various locations to share dinner and discuss Bible-based topics and Lutheran perspectives.  

 

Serving groups

  • NEW!  Backpack Buddies program: Zion is pairing up with Covington Storehouse to bring much needed food to students at Jenkins Creek Elementary who are food insecure. Many students rely on free or reduced-price school meals during the week but may not have enough food for the weekends. We aim to bridge that gap by providing easy-to-prepare food for them to take home each Friday. This program is 100% community driven. Examples of food donations are instant oatmeal envelopes, fruit snacks, goldfish packs, cans of soup, ramen packs, fruit or applesauce cups, shelf stable milk boxes, juice boxes, and easy mac and cheese packs.  You may order from their Amazon Wishlist ​or email Lisa at jcbackpackbuddies@gmail.com
  • KentHOPE: Zion regularly supports KentHOPE, an emergency shelter for women and children administered by Seattle Union Gospel Mission.  Each month, several meals are prepared and delivered to KentHOPE, for them to provide to women and children in crisis.
  • Vine Maple Place: Zion regularly contributes personal hygiene items for the Care Closet, as well as assembling ‘meals-in-a-bag’
  • Mission quilting: From January through April, this group gathers to sew and assemble quilts that are donated to Lutheran World Relief.  If you can tie a knot, we would love to have you!
  • Ruth-Rachel circle: This women’s group meets regularly for Bible study, service, and fellowship. Each year they assemble over 100 health kits to donate to Lutheran World Relief, and they send cards and notes to our shut-in members.
  • Corner of Love: Serving Nicaraguan refugees that have escaped the brutal dictatorship in that country and are temporarily residing in Costa Rica. Zion sends a team to work with Corner of Love for a week each winter, and collects supplies through the year.

 

Fellowship groups

  • Julefest: Crafters begin working in June to prepare for the Zion Lutheran Church Women’s annual holiday bazaar called “Julefest”.  A Scandinavian celebration, Julefest is held on the first Saturday of November. Additional hands and ideas are always welcome!
  • Stitching and Hardanger: Bring a project you are working on and join other stitchers for lively fellowship (and maybe even pick up a new tip or two!)
