Making Disciples of All Nations
You are the most active group at church. Its true, you lead busy lives with school, social lives, after school activities, church and youth group. However, consider this, when other church groups are looking for some help with their activities, you are the first people that they look too for that help. It is because you have fixed your eyes upon Jesus and are known for reflecting His love onto others. Great Job!
2013 National LCMS Youth Gathering
July 1-5, 2013 - San Antonio
Let the Journey Begin!
The National LCMS Youth Gathering is a unique and special experience. Lasting impacts are made as thousands of youth gather together to profess their Christian Lutheran faith.
We are fast approaching our first real register by date for the National Youth Gathering and a few of you who said you wanted to go participate in November have not provided the necessary registration forms and fees. January 6th is your last chance.
Caleb, David, Noah, Seth, and Zach are the only people who have committed. If your name is not listed here you are not registered. Registration closes January 6th.
For more information see Curtis.
Fundraising should not be the engine that drives youth ministry. But, we still need to fundraise for the National Youth Gathering 2013 (http://www.lcmsgathering.com/) to make it more affordable. Some churches pour so much energy into a trip, that if you are not going…then why bother? The focus of our youth group is our relationship with Jesus and our relationships with each other through Jesus. Not everyone will directly benefit from these fundraisers, if that’s you, then perhaps you could view this as another youth group activity and hang out with your friends.
