The Zion junior high and high school youth attended the Higher Things youth conference in Valparaiso, Indiana July 24-28. Some of the services can be seen on the Higher Things Facebook site.

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. -Colossians 3

The Zion Junior High & High School youth while at the 4 day conference were immersed in the Gospel. They heard about Jesus, and what He's done for them.  They participated in the many worship services in which they joined their voices with those of the historic Christian church through liturgy and hymns, and heard the Gospel preached in its purity.

They heard, in great depth, about their faith, not just what they believe, but why they believe it and why it's important. All this equipped them to talk about their faith to others. And they did plenty of that as they got to know hundreds of other Lutheran youth just like them throughout the worship and catechesis sessions, especially during the free time activities each evening. Higher Things conferences are held every summer, so there are opportunities to build life-long friendships, as you worship, learn, and have fun together If you're able to attend year after year!
