2018 ELCA Youth Gathering

Plans are beginning for the 2018 ELCA Youth Gathering to be held in Houston, Texas, from June 27th-July 1, 2018.

Every three years, 30,000 high school youth and their adult leaders from across the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America gather for a week of faith formation known as the 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.

 Early bird registration for high-schoolers and adult sponsors begins November 15, 2017 and regular registration begins February 16, 2018. Volunteer applications for college-age and older adults, who would like to serve at the event are being accepted from now until July 15, 2017.

Money from Sunday taco sales will go towards expenses for this event! We register as a church and will coordinate with other congregations for transportation, housing, etc.

The theme of the 2018 ELCA Youth Gathering is “This Changes Everything.” #ELCAYG2018.  It is based on the theme verse: “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God.” Ephesians 2:8

This is an exciting and inspiring event. For more information, contact Pastor Eileen (until an adult Gathering leader has been selected.)
