This active member rate is given to the school by Zion Lutheran Church in honor and support of the family’s
commitment to Christian Education.
“Active” Zion Church Member Rate encourages active membership in Zion Lutheran Church. 
  • The desired goal is weekly attendance at worship and Bible study at Zion Lutheran Church. The Board of Christian Education has made the decision that a minimum of 50% church attendance is required to obtain the Active Member Rate. Tithing is also an important goal for each church member as we present our gifts to God.
  • Attendance is tracked through teacher records and Office 360(church office record of friendship pad signing). Attendance is mainly determined through signing the “friendship pad.” 
  • Parents/Guardians may attend the Pastor’s session concerning doctrines taught at Zion Lutheran School.
