MZ Kids ministers to children from birth through 6th grade. Through Sunday School, youth group, & lots of fun activities, children & youth learn about Jesus and have opportunities to develop friendships. We pray that each child will hear the gospel & make the choice to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.


Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young,

but set an example for the believers in speech, in life,

in love, in faith, and in purity.  ~ 1 Timothy 4:12

All of our volunteers have been Safe Sanctuary Approved.  This means they have had background checks and have been determined safe to work with the children and youth of our church.  


Contacting you During the Service-

If we should need to contact you during the worship service, we will call your cell phone.  So, please keep your cell phone on vibrate during the worship service.  Nursery parents:  If you drop your child off in the tent, you will be given a pager.  If you are needed during the service, the pager will light up and vibrate.

Upward Basketball

For Grades 1st -8th @ Mt Zion Church




Upward Sports started as a single church basketball league, and basketball has been our most popular sport ever since! From a Recreation League through an Academy or Developmental Program all the way up to Upward Stars, young basketball players can chart their own athletic journeys through multiple levels of programming – all while being developed into total athletes mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially.


Our culture has created a "win at all cost mentality" - most points, most trophies, most championships - generally defines a winner. Upward defines winning as learning and/or teaching lessons in the game of life. Parents, coaches and officials play a vital role in building the self-esteem and character of every child in this league. Players will look to their parents, coaches, and officials as models for sportsmanship, respect for authority, and positive attitudes. Together we can provide a lasting effect in these children that will last long after the end of the season.

Upward promotes Character and Self esteem in Every Child by:


Providing an evaluation system that promotes equal teams and opportunities

Teaching and promoting the "Circle of Affirmation"

Using a substitution system for each team,

Awarding special recognition awards after every game

Special player and team announcements at every game

Awarding EACH child an end of season award / gift
