Middle School Youth Group

About: Middle School Youth Group (MSYG) is a collaborative ministry between Zion Lutheran and Our Savior's Lutheran in Cloquet. MSYG is a time for games, fellowship, devotions, snacks and fun together! MSYG is open to all youth in grades 5-8. You do not need to be a member of Zion or Our Savior's to participate. Our 2021-2022 program year will kick off on Wednesday, September 15, 2021 at Our Savior's Lutheran Church. We plan to meet weekly this year. Each week MSYG is officially from 3:30-5pm.

Transportation: this year, we are offering limited transportation for those outside of the Cloquet school system (Esko, Carlton, Wrenshall, etc.) that would like to participate. One of our trained staff will be driving the OSLC van to pick up students at designated school locations. Please contact Katie Anderson at Zion or Jennifer Hamilton at Our Savior's if this is an option you'd like to explore for your student. At this time, we ask that students at the Cloquet Middle School walk between CMS and Our Savior's. Parents are welcome to transport as you see fit. Any student arriving before 3:30pm is invited to help set up for MSYG and/or spend time working on school work or playing games with peers before the MSYG officially begins.


COVID 19: For the safety of all youth and staff, we ask that students bring a mask to MSYG. Masks are not required outdoors, however, for any indoor programming we ask that youth and adults at MSYG wear a mask. Thank you for your understanding! COVID protocols are liable to change throughout the year.


Registration and Release forms: Please fill out a registration form for each child planning to participate in MSYG this 2021-2022 program year. These release forms will be valid from the date signed through August 31, 2022, and will be used for ALL youth programming, so you only need to fill one out per child this year. You can fill the form out online or by using a paper copy. If you have questions please reach out to Director of Faith Formation Katie Anderson at katie.anderson@zioncloquet.org. Registration forms will be posted in early September!

Movie Nights

We are hosting movie nights for our middle and high school students! During the colder months, we are meeting online on Zoom for fun virtual movie nights; when the weather is warm, we hope to have outdoor movie nights again! Please watch our Newsletters for upcoming movie night dates!


Middle School Youth Gathering

Each year, the Northeastern MN Synod hosts an awesome overnight Middle School Youth Gathering for youth in grades 6-8 at Cragun's Resort on Gull Lake in Brainerd, MN. This one-night experience includes amazing games, worship, learning, pool time, pizza and more!

The Middle School Gathering for 2021 has been canceled for the November event.  Please watch for an alternative in-person event after the new year.  The LYO team is working hard to plan a safe event.  Details will be posted by mid-November at the latest!
