Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.”

Matthew 28:19-20


When you think of this time of the year, what comes to mind? While Christmas is the celebration of the best gift we could ever receive we must keep in mind that this gift is one that “keeps on giving” for all now and into eternity. God promised a Savior and that promise came true when Jesus was born. Jesus came to a world filled with pain and suffering to bring hope to the lost and dying.

Think about this: There are some people who have never received God’s gift of Jesus. Who do you know that needs to hear this good news? Our lessons about Jesus will show that Jesus came to save, heal, and bring hope to the world.

This should cause you to think about the people who still need to hear about the Savior. As we work together tell your children more about Jesus. In prayer, let us ask God to help them see the importance of telling others of the reason Jesus came: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16).




Have a wonderful day in the Lord–everyday as we enter the New Year 2022!!

ZBCSS Parent, Children & Youth Corner 

Welcome to 5T’Z

5TZTaking Time to Talk Together Zion–brings age-appropriate online Sunday School lessons to our PreK through High School students and their families.  Using our materials from David C. Cook Publishing Company,  5TZ partners with families to help their children build loving relationships with Jesus Christ. We encourage adults to supervise, play, and–most of all–TALK with their children as they use this material to grow stronger in the Lord. If adults lead their children through the lessons, they will have a greater impact. For the security of our students and the material’s copyright, the class webpages are password protected. David C. Cook has made the digital material available due to the COVID-19 crisis and Zion thanks them for authorizing us to share it with our church family.  Interested in getting started with 5TZ?  Call or email the church office for the password.  You can also contact a Sunday School staff member.
