This is why we encourage our students to not only attend the youth group, but to join one of our weekly Community Bible Studies (CBS, for short) , participate monthly in service projects, yearly retreats, mission's trips, and grow deeper in the Scriptures at our Sunday Morning Bible & Breakfast.

We currently have 8 groups (both middle and senior high). The groups meet on various nights and through out the Harford County area. If you aren't yet in a group, we would love to have you. You should definitely come check them out, for more information click here to send Andy McMullin (youth director) an email.

If you are over the age of 18 and God has placed the youth on your heart there are two very important ways that you can get involved:
1. All of our youth are covered in prayer by member's of our congregation. If you would like to sign up to pray for a youth member please let us know.
2. If you would like to volunteer as a Youth Leader, Community Group Leader, or if you have an idea for a service project please feel free to contact us.
*Also please note that all adults who work with any of our youth or children have been through a complete background check and always serve in pairs. The safety of your children and teens are a priority at Mt Zion.
