Date: Sunday, October 6th from 4:00-6:00 p.m.
Event: PIZZA PARTY INFORMATIONAL GATHERING
Every three years, 30,000 high school youth and their adult leaders from across the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America 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.
The 2021 ELCA Youth Gathering will be held in Minneapolis. Minneapolis, the “City by Nature”, will be a wonderful and unique host for the Gathering. It is a growing, diverse and Lutheran-dense city nestled on the banks of the Mississippi river in the heart of the Midwest. While in the city, Gathering participants will spend time at the Minneapolis Convention Center, US Bank Stadium, area hotels and local congregations in addition to the many restaurants, parks and cultural centers the city has to offer.
Youth who are in 8th – 12th grade at the time of registration (Fall 2020) are eligible to attend. That means any youth who are currently in 7th grade or older are eligible to consider going. While 2021 may seem a ways off, I would like to invite youth and parents who may be interested to attend a Pizza Party Gathering on Sunday, October 6, from 4:00-6:00 p.m. I am suggesting every family bring along their favorite pizza to share. It will give us an opportunity to share stories, answer any questions you may have and at least begin thinking about attending. We will gather at St. Paul's in Mountaintop on October 6th and look forward to being able to explore this opportunity with you...
