New Wine Youth Ministry

The musical group is called New Wine and it is sponsored by Zion Lutheran Church, an ELCA congregation located in Cloquet, MN (about 15 miles south of Duluth, MN). New Winers are high school students grades 9-12 from area schools and area churches. Starting in January, they meet Sunday afternoons to work on that year's musical. In May they begin performing for many area churches and in June they embark on a 9 day tour performing at churches along the way. This year there are 52 members from 17 different congregations who will be touring with adult chaperones in a coach bus.  They are in  their 27th , this year they are traveling to Yellowstone and will be preforming GODSPELL!

Zion’s New Wine ministry is excited to announce the purchase of a new and upgraded sound system ready to go for the 2019 season!  Previous equipment had been purchased new and was donated to New Wine 10-15 years ago. Due to increasing demands and general wear and tear, the system was beginning to show significant inadequacies in some key areas but especially at its heart: the sound mixing board.

The success of the 2018 season and the generosity of our supporters allowed us to address this problem heading into the coming season. We were able to pay for 1/2 of the system out of the New Wine funds. This GO FUND ME page is asking for financial help with the cost of the rest of the system. Our hope had been to gradually replace components as budget would allow. However, an analysis by our tech team and a sound consultant revealed another urgent but unforeseen need. We discovered that due to an FCC frequency sale, nearly our entire wireless microphone system was soon becoming FCC non-compliant and could become useless at any time.  Facing the need to replace two-thirds of our equipment, we decided it would be best to replace the whole system all at once. This allowed us to avoid the costs of making new equipment work with old while at the same time allowed us to take full advantage of the available new technology.

We are confident that through prayer and the talents of our amazing tech crew kids, this equipment will provide New Wine with superior sound, solid microphone transmission, and rugged “tour-ability” for many years to come. Thank you for considering helping the New Wine group in this way.

The kids and volunteer directors spend countless hours rehearsing and developing an amazing show.  Part of this experience  involves the kids raising money for tour with a variety of fundraisers.

This Go Fund ME is specific for a long overdue sound system.
