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.
After much prayer and consideration, the ELCA has decided to postpone next summer’s ELCA Youth Gathering to 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
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.
To learn more about the postponement and the 2022 Gathering, please visit: elca.org/YouthGathering/COVID19.
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.
