Our Opportunities



Adult Bible Study is generally a weekly series which focuses on a portion of the Bible or a topic of interest to participants. Bible Study is held between Sunday morning worship services at 9:20am in the fellowship hall downstairs of the church.


Sunday School provides children (ages 3 and up) and youth (up to eighth grade) with a fun and welcoming opportunity to learn about Jesus and what he did for us. It is held between Sunday worship services at 9:20am in the classrooms of the school with the younger students downstairs and the upper grades and teen classes upstairs.


Bible Information Class provides a basic overview of Christian doctrines and beliefs. It is perfect for those considering membership, those who just want to know what Lutherans believe, or those looking for a refresher course in Biblical teachings and Lutheran doctrine. Classes are often offered in the fall and spring of the year, but can also be offered at any time of year as need arises. For more information, contact Pastor Krause at bkrause@zion-wels.org.
