2019 LCMS National Youth Gathering
Held every 3 years since 1980, the LCMS Youth Gathering provides thousands of youth and adults the opportunity to come together as a community of God’€s people to learn more about Jesus Christ, the Christian faith and their Lutheran identity. The next Gathering will be held on July 11-15, 2019 in Minneapolis, MN. During the five days of the Gathering, youth spend time together in God’s word, worship, service, and fellowship with others from across the synod.
The theme for this year is “Real. Present. God”, which is based on Psalm 46:10.
Be still, and know that I am God.
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!”
The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our fortress.”
Watch this video to learn more about what the Gathering is all about, and check out the presentation that was shared with families at the informational meeting. Contact Lori Sansoucie for more information or to register.
