Gathering in Houston 2018

June 27 - July 1, 2018 we will be gathering in Houston for the ELCA Youth Gathering. Every three years, 30,000 high school youth and their adult leaders 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.


FLYouth in 8th grade to 12th grade during the 2017-2018 school year are eligible to attend.  We will also be needing a number of adult leaders to join us!


Registration is now open!  If you would like to go to the Gathering your non-refundable deposit of $150 and registration form (click here) is due to Pastor Jes by August 30, 2017.
