We’re sending 10 teens (& 2 adults) from Christ Lutheran, Grace Lutheran and the community to Houston, from June 24 – July 1. While we’re moving forward with our fundraising goal, but we’ve still got some ground to cover. We welcome all donations and ask that you write “Youth Gathering” on the memo line if you donate by check.
On June 27, 2018, approximately 30,000 high school youth and their adult leaders from across the ELCA will gather for a week of faith formation known as the ELCA Youth Gathering. This Changes Everything! is the theme of this year’s gathering. Through days spent in interactive learning, worship, Bible study, service and fellowship, young people grow in faith and are challenged and inspired to live their faith in their daily lives. An important part of the Gathering’s ministry are the two pre-events: the Multicultural Youth Leadership Event (MYLE), a faith formation and leadership development event primarily for youth of color, and the tAble, a gathering that gathers, blesses and empowers youth with disabilities.
