High School Ministry
Encourage, Equip, Empower
The goal of Zion High School Ministry is to encourage, equip, and empower high school youth in exploring what it means to live out their faith as servant leaders in our community.
Bless your enemies; no cursing under your breath. Laugh with your happy friends when they’re happy; share tears when they’re down. Get along with each other; don’t be stuck-up. Make friends with nobodies; don’t be the great somebody. Don’t hit back; discover beauty in everyone. If you’ve got it in you, get along with everybody. Don’t insist on getting even; that’s not for you to do. “I’ll do the judging,” says God. “I’ll take care of it.”Our Scriptures tell us that if you see your enemy hungry, go buy that person lunch, or if he’s thirsty, get him a drink. Your generosity will surprise him with goodness. Don’t let evil get the best of you; get the best of evil by doing good. – Romans 12:14-21 MSG
Common Ground meets Sundays at 10 a.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 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 focuses 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!
