Prior to the teaching portion of the corporate worship service, students in grades 6-8 gather in the Youth Wing for food, fellowship and Bible teaching. We teach a three-year rotating curriculum that includes:
Creation & The Fall - We study the origin of the earth and students construct the Perfect City to creatively simulate the Fall of mankind.
Revelation and What's the Difference - We study the essentials of Christian faith and explain the differences between other world religions. Then we recreate elements of the Second Coming and study the book of Revelation.
Seven Checkpoints & Apologetics - Checkpoints include Authentic Faith, Spiritual Disciplines, Moral Boundaries, Healthy Friendships, Wise Choices, Ultimate Authority, and Putting Others First. Then we learn to answer the tough questions and get prepared to give the reason for the hope that we have.
New City Catechism Course Begins September 12
Families with students in grades 6-8 are encouraged to consider engaging in the ZF Catechism class, 6-7:30 PM, two Sundays per month during the school year. Family social and kick off is August 22 with the first class on September 12 at ZF. Click here for the full schedule.
Middle School Overnight & Pancake Breakfast August 14-15, 2021
Every year, our middle school students gather for an overnighter followed by a pancake breakfast. This fun event has become a tradition at Zionsville Fellowship that involves tent camping, and a night of fun, games, and just hanging out by the bonfire.
Soon after a new 6th grader (or a 7th or 8th grader new to the church) enters Middle School, they are assigned a secret prayer partner who will pray exclusively for them during their middle school years. The students are encouraged to write letters/prayer requests regularly to their prayer partner. At the end of the student’s 8th grade year, they meet their prayer partner face to face for the first time, which usually takes place during a reveal following the pancake breakfast.
This event signals a fond farewell to the 8th graders and welcomes incoming 6th graders and is held each August, just before school begins. For more information, contact Pam Basch at email@example.com or 317-809-2262.
Set Apart Mini Retreat - May 2022
We invite all 8th, 9th, and 10th graders to a mini-retreat to be held on Satruday, May 8th from 4:15 pm to 10:45 pm. More information will follow but in the meantime, contact Pam Basch if you have questions.
Middle School Fall/Winter Retreat - Dates to Be Determined

This year we will travel to Springhill Camp.
