ELCA Youth Gathering
Every three years, tens of thousands of ELCA Lutheran youth and leaders gather in a city to worship and praise God, to learn and study, and to serve their neighbors. Trademark orange t-shirts easily identify the participants who witness through presence and service in the cities who host the Gathering.
The next Youth Gathering will be held June 29, 2018 to July 3, 2021 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Youth entering 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grades in the fall of 2021, and 2021 high school graduates will be eligible to attend. Older youth, young adults and older adults are encouraged to volunteer with the churchwide ELCA Youth Gathering organization. Our congregation will be fundraising, selecting leaders (1:5 adult to student ratio) and preparing for the Gathering together.
"God has plenty of love, grace and hope to spare, I promise."
