Adventures in Christian Living
"Adventures in Christian Living" or "ACL" is a new part of what many may remember as the Pioneers.  The Lutheran Boy and Girl Pioneer programs are designed for children in kindergarten through 8th grades.  This is a fun, family-centered, synod-wide, "extracurricular" group that meets various times throughout the school year.

The goal of the Pioneer program and ACL is to share the love of Jesus with children, thereby teaching children how to serve their Savior, their church, their families, and their community.  Through a variety of events and activities children are taught love for God, respect for his creation, skills for daily life, leadership principles, and more.  A sampling of topics that have been covered in the past include:  nature, camping, cooking, crafts, sportsmanship, and community service.


At Zion the goal for our Adventures in Christian Living program is for families with young children to gather together as friends and to cultivate Christian relationships.  We desire to be a benefit to our surrounding communities as a positive witness for Christ.  We also desire to mentor our children to be leaders.  Our Adventures in Christian Living program is really designed for families.  Parents participate in the activities with their children instead of dropping their children off and picking them up a few hours later.  Christian friendships are fostered not only between the children, but also between the parents.  If you are wondering how to spend quality time with your children without them constantly rolling their eyes at you, ACL may be the group for you!

Christ Jesus, who died--more than that, who was raised to life--is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? ~ Romans 8:34-35a
