About New Wine: New Wine (www.zioncloquet.org/new_wine) is a Christian youth drama/musical ministry of Zion Lutheran Church in Cloquet, Minnesota. The group's name is inspired by the 5th chapter of Luke in the Christian Bible where Jesus challenges people to get rid of old categories in which religion and relationship with God has been cast, and pour “new wine into new wineskins.” The group promotes Christian fellowship, friendship, and understanding among the students, who come from varied religious backgrounds and traditions. The group is in its 26th year.
