We sent 5 youth to the gathering this year, along with several from our sister church, Bethlehem in Sun Prairie. Now that they’ve rested, be sure to ask them about it!
Held every 3 years since 1980, the LCMS Youth Gathering provides over 20,000 youth and adults the opportunity to come together as a community of God’s people to be encouraged in their walk with Jesus Christ and learn about the Christian faith and their Lutheran identity.
The Gathering is more than the five days of the event. The preparation process for the Gathering brings together young people and supportive adults to encourage each other in their baptismal identity. The Gathering provides young people a vision for the vastness of Christ’s Church and equips them for vocational service as they continue their walk with Jesus.
