Can youth who are not members of my congregation attend?
Yes! The Gathering is a great event for youth to invite friends who are not members of their church but are longing to learn more about God’s love for them in Jesus.These friends and their parents will be included in all pre-Gathering meetings and events. These meetings are ideal times to discuss Scripture; support faith development; and introduce congregational pastors, church workers and members.
WE ARE ONLY 1 YEAR OUT! The next National LCMS Youth Gathering is July 11-15, 2019 in Minneapolis, MN! Now is the time for us to begin planning for this amazing event that you DO NOT WANT TO MISS!

At least one parent MUST attend per household. Students must be completing their 8th grade year of school through age 20 by summer of 2019 to attend. Please RSVP. At this meeting we will discuss preliminary information, registration process, fundraising and future meeting planning. Parents- If you would like to be considered as an Adult Chaperone for the Gathering, please let me know BEFORE the meeting by emailing me directly. Registration for the 2019 Gathering will begin in August 2018 to be submitted by October 7, 2018 with full ($365) or partial ($200) non-refundable registration payment A non-refundable registration fee totaling $365 will be required and due in full by December 31, 2018 for each student.
