DONATE TO NEW LIFE YOUTH FUND: Send youth to ELCA Youth Gathering in Houston, June 2018
We'd like to send our youth to the gathering especially this year - when there is work to be done in Houston. We promise at baptism to help our youth grow in their faith. This is the time. Chip in if you can. 

about the 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 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.

God willing, Houston will be able to host the gathering and we'll be able to send many youth and adults to help with cleanup in a few months, when much of the attention will have shifted, but much help will still be needed.
