Zion Serves at Hills Alive 2023

The Board of Discipleship organized an opportunity for Zion members to Serve in Love and represent our congregation at the Hills Alive Festival outreach ministry July 15 & 16, 2023. Members and friends put their faith into action as they practiced Knowing Jesus more, Growing in Faith through Christian music and fellowship, and Serving with Love in a variety of festival areas.

Fun Facts about our time at Hills Alive:

11 Zion volunteers served for a total of 46 hours!

• 8 volunteers served in the merchandise tent from 4-7 pm Saturday

• 2 volunteers helped in parking

• 2 volunteers helped with general festival setup

• 1 volunteer worked in first aid

• 1 volunteer worked in operations

• 1 volunteer worked at the info booth

25 members and friends enjoyed fellowship at the Zion canopy

• Two families from outside the Black Hills area approached our team asking for worship service information. One of those families did attend 8 am service on Sunday! Representing Zion in our community is an evangelism opportunity, and the new t-shirts helped lead other believers through our doors.

Serving at Hills Alive is a rewarding experience and contributes to the success of a large local outreach effort. Please prayerfully consider Serving with Love next year alongside other Zion members and friends!

What Is Hills Alive? Hills Alive is a free summer music festival held the third weekend in July in Memorial Park, Rapid City featuring many of today’s best Christian artists over two days. There is also a kids area with a bouncy village and children’s activity tent. Several delicious food vendors are on site as well as Merchandise vendors and non-profit booths. This is a family-friendly event and a huge outreach ministry in the area because it’s FREE and it’s in the middle of downtown Rapid City. Hills Alive brings in 20,000-25,000 people each day!
