Family Ministry

Mission: To strengthen marriages and equip parents.

Family Ministry at Zion is dedicated to helping husbands and wives live-out their marriage vows, as well as equipping parents to raise their children in the Christian faith. Toward that end, a number of resources are made available by the ministry. See below for a few of the most important.

Marriage Retreats

Zion supports two different marriage ministries: Weekend to Remember (by Family Life), and Lutheran Marriage Encounter. Weekend to Remember offers a large setting with tremendous speakers who provide couples with biblical wisdom for marriage. Marriage Encounter is a smaller setting that focuses on communication and especially the communication of one's feelings toward one's spouse. These weekend getaways for married couples are held throughout the year and are publicized in the weekly bulletin. For more information, contact the Zion office.

Faith & Freedom

Faith & Freedom is an opportunity for parents to leave their children at Zion and have a date-night. The children are watched by a team of dedicated volunteers. Married couples are encouraged to take the time away to reconnect and strengthen their marriage. To find out the next date for Faith & Freedom, please call the Zion office.
