Our Youth Group will be working hard over the next year to raise funds to offset the cost of traveling to Minneapolis in July 2019 for the National Youth Gathering.

Please make every effort to support our Youth and their hard work and encourage them to attend this life-changing event! Thank you!

From the National Youth Gathering 2019 Website….. Youth and adults from across the Synod will come together July 11-15, 2019, in Minneapolis for the next LCMS Youth Gathering under the theme “Real. Present. God.” The theme is rooted in Psalm 46. “Through the gift of faith, we know our God to be real and present with us in daily troubles, fears and joys,” said the Rev. Mark Kiessling, director of LCMS Youth Ministry.
