Help our Youth get to the Gathering!

5 of our Youth will be traveling to Houston, TX June 26 – July 1 to attend the ELCA Youth Gathering. 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 ELCA Youth 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.

Our youth will be fundraising over the next two months to help offset the costs associated with attending the Gathering. One way you can help is by “sponsoring a mile” for $5/mile as they travel the 1390 from Hagerstown to Houston. In addition the youth will be offering light breakfasts following the Contemporary Worship Service each Sunday in May. They are accepting donation to put toward their trip.
