ACTIVITIES

Although our meetings are once a month, we have other activities which give us the opportunity to get together once a week during the school year such as service projects, field trips and socials.

MONTHLY MEETINGS & ACTIVITIES

All meetings start at 7:00pm at Morning Star Lutheran Church except for the August and December potluck meetings which start at 6:30pm. At least one parent is to attend the monthly Zoe Meetings with their teen(s) or arrange for another parent to be your 'substitute' for the evening. 

Activities are for Zoe members only. This means no friends may attend any Zoe meetings or functions.  Zoe alumni may attend meetings, but no other activities. However, we are a family-oriented group, so if you have family visiting during one of our events, they are welcome to join us if there are spots available.  Please contact the person in charge of the event before RSVPing to see if it is OK. If space is limited for an activity, Zoe teen members get the first spots, then sibs. Teens can be dropped off, but the coordinator of the activity should be notified.

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
