High School Ministry

Encourage, Equip, Empower

The goal of Zion High School Ministry is to encourage, equip, and empower high school youth to explore what it means to live out their faith as servant leaders in our community.

Common Ground

During the program year, Common Ground meets twice a month on Sundays 12-1:30 p.m. in the Youth Room (see below for schedule) and Wednesdays 7-7:30 p.m. in the Youth Room when confirmation is in session 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.

Common Ground Sunday Schedule (twice a month, 12 to 1:30 p.m.)

  • January 21 and 28
  • February 11 and 25
  • March 17 and 24
  • April 7 and 21
  • May 5

Summer Trips

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!

Tacoma HS Trip

Summer 2024 Mission Trip

We are going to Tacoma Washington! Because of the success and fun from our combined trip this past summer, Zion will be going on another combined trip with Lord of Life to Tacoma Washington. There, we will be working with a few different organizations to learn, grow, and most importantly, walk together with each other in faith.

Trip dates are June 23-29
Trip deposit due by November 1st
The trip deposit is $100
