ELCA Youth Gathering
The ELCA Youth Gathering for high school aged youth takes place every three years and is about faith formation, worship, study, fellowship, service, and play. It is an opportunity for youth to engage with peers from across the United States and the world who share a common commitment and faith in Christ.
The 2022 ELCA Youth Gathering will be held July 24-28, 2022, in Minneapolis, with the two pre-events, the Multicultural Youth Leadership Event (MYLE) and the tAble, scheduled for July 21-24, 2022. Updated logos, promotional videos, flyer templates, posters and Zoom backgrounds can be found on the ELCA Youth Gathering website.
Our Synod Coordinator, Pastor Dan Schewe, will be sending out resources and information as we prepare for the event. Sign up for emails and join the Facebook Group to stay informed! Pastor Dan also hosted an informational Zoom meeting which is available on YouTube.

Lutheran Summer Music
Lutheran Summer Music (LSM) is the nation’s foremost faith-based music academy for high school students. Each summer, LSM brings together a community of musicians to learn, grow, and worship on a Lutheran college campus for four weeks.
Young musicians and renowned faculty from around the country come together for high-quality musical training, forming an intentional community that shares in the rich musical and liturgical traditions of the Lutheran Church each day. Students return to their communities transformed, inspired, and eager to share their gifts.
