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.


  22 FLYouth (who just completed grades 8th -12th) and 6 adult leaders traveled to Houston, TX June 27- July 1 for the 2018 ELCA Youth Gathering. Thank you to all who helped support our youth through donations, prayer and staying connected with our FLY group while they were serving, worshipping and growing in Houston.  

We hosted a luncheon on August 12th to THANK those that sponsored us and share our experiences.

  

We look forward to Minneapolis, MN for the 2021 Gathering!  

Thank you Faith Lutheran for supporting our FLYouth ministry!
