Middle School Youth Group

Middle School Youth Group (MSYG) is a collaborative ministry between Zion Lutheran and Our Savior's Lutheran in Cloquet. We are meeting twice a month during the 2020-2021 academic year, on the first and third Wednesday of each month from 3:30-5:00pm. We are currently meeting online on Zoom due to the pandemic and cold temperatures. MSYG is open to all 5th-8th graders and friends! The final MSYG of the 2020-2021 academic year will be held on Wednesday, May 19, 202.
