CHILDREN'S MINISTRY (5th Grade and Under)

"Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." ~ Matthew 19:14

Children are always welcome at Mt. Zion United Methodist Church. Our youngest worshippers are our pride, joy, and the future of our congregation!

The Children's Ministry of Mt. Zion UMC exists to teach children about God's promises by helping them to hear, learn and obey His word. Partnering with parents and spiritual leaders, we strive to ensure children develop happy, peaceful memories of church and build relationships with God in a positive environment.

Nursery 9:45 - 10:45am for ages 3 and under

YOUTH AND ADULT MINISTRIES   (6th Grade and beyond)

The Youth and Adult Ministry is the continued learning of God’s promises as well as a better understanding of the Bible in a group atmosphere where you learn and discuss the Bible with different views which makes it such a deeper commitment to your faith search.

6th Grade to 12th grade have more opportunities to meet with each other, during Youth Groups.

The High School “The Fire” 9th -12th meet on Wednesdays 6-7pm
The Middle School “The Flame” 6th -8th meet on Fridays 6:30-8pm.

They go on Christian Retreats,(one being R.O.C.K in Ocean City, MD ) The 14-17 year olds participate in Outreach programs such as ASP (Appalachian Service Project, making homes warmer, drier, and safer).

The Mission Statement for our Youth:
Growing in our relationship with God.
Growing in our relationship with each other.
Growing in our relationship with Mt.Zion.


Sunday’s at 9:45 and during the week. The classes can be a 4 week commitment to a 32 week commitment(Disciple Class) and anything in between. The day’s change so we are able to offer a class to everyone who wants to join. We know in today’s world everyone has different times that work for their schedule.

We hope we can offer you and your family a place to learn God’s Word, and grow in your spiritual and personal Love for God.

For more information, or if you have any questions please email or call.
