Common Ground meets Sundays 12-1:30 p.m. and Wednesdays 7-7:30 p.m. during the program year and is meant to be a place where all should feel welcome, be welcomed, and want to welcome others. We will laugh, have fun, grow in relationship with each other and the community, and have opportunities to grow in our faith through three different aspects:
- Fellowship: High School Ministry will be centered in the community.
- Faith: High School Ministry will have a focus on faith and how it intersects with our lives.
- Servant Leadership: High School Ministry at Zion will offer a focus on servant leadership and what that looks like in peer-to-peer relationships and our community.
Every Summer, 8th – 12th graders are able to participate in our Summer Trips! During the fall, youth get to decide the location or type of trips that we will go on during the following summer.
In the past, Zion has done a variety of trips, from service trips in Duluth all the way to Washington D.C., or Outdoor Adventure trips to the Boundary Waters and the Colorado Rockies! Some years, we even get to go to Nicaragua!
