It seems unreal that the 2022 LCMS Youth Gathering is almost here! As a youth ministry we need to begin preparing for this awesome event despite it being over a year away. Please put the dates on your calendar NOW so you don’t plan any camps or family vacations during that time in 2022. Please leave at least 2 days on each end of the Gathering dates open for possible travel time and group activities.
We will have a meeting for all interested youth and their parents on Sunday, May 23 following services at 12PM. Parents interested in being a chaperone should also attend to understand what happens on the trip and expectations of that role.
Please RSVP to me by Friday May 21 if you plan to attend so I can order lunch.
 
How Much Does it Cost?
The Gathering registration fee is $395 per participant. This fee covers all Gathering program and Office of National Mission Youth Ministry administrative costs and secondary insurance for all participants. Hotel, travel and meal costs are not included in the registration fee.
As in the past, CTR asks youth who want to attend to pay the registration fee, which is generally 1/3 of the total cost. The cost of travel, meals, hotel, District activities, t-shirts etc. will all be supported by fundraising and donations.
 
Our next meeting will then be August 8, 2021 to review registration forms which will be due in September 2021 for inputting online. If you have any questions, please contact DCE Suzanne and she will be happy to answer them for you.

HOPE ON THE BEACH

CTR YOUTH SUMMER MISSION TRIP IN SANTA ROSA BEACH, FL MOVED TO JUNE 2021
 

Rescheduled trip for June 2021 and Hope on the Beach in Santa Rosa is also excited about that opportunity. We will leave Tulsa June 19 and return to Tulsa June 27 with a stay in Florida from the 19-26 and an extra day for travel back. This would put us hosting VBS there June 21-25, 2021.

Parents and families, please email DCE Suzanne back as soon as possible and let her know where you stand as far as considering next summer so we can determine which youth are planning to still attend and if spots are open that we need to fill.

 
All youth attending must turn in the following items:
1) Trip Registration Form
2) 2021 Medical and Permission Form Packet
3) Payment of $275

Confirmation Classes 2021-2022

Confirmation Fall 2021 Schedule TBD
 

Students have TWO options for class times this year. Because of the exciting, active construction project at CTR we will be slightly creative with our course schedule this year.
Class options are:
Sunday School from 9:30-10:30 am for 6th grade – 8th grade beginning August 22
CTR-U on Wednesday nights beginning September 8

Students eligible for classes may attend one or both class time offerings because each class will be a different course each lasting differing lengths of time. Rather than a set confirmation class schedule each individual student and their family will be able to build their class time around their individual needs and time constraints. This means the length of time a student takes to complete all the requirements will vary for each and no longer be a set number of years as it was in the past.

Please contact DCE Suzanne if you plan to have your child take ONE (specify which) or TWO classes and she will send you the appropriate books or make them available for you to pick up at CTR. 
Thank you for your support, and please keep your children and the ministry of Christ the Redeemer in your prayers.

 National LCMS Youth Gathering

What is the theme for the 2022 LCMS Youth Gathering?

The theme for the 2022 LCMS Youth Gathering is “In All Things” and is centered around Colossians 1:15-20. 

When and Where is the 2022 LCMS Youth Gathering?

The next LCMS Youth Gathering will be July 9-13, 2022 in Houston, TX. 

What is the LCMS Youth Gathering response to COVID-19?
We are proceeding with planning toward a 2022 Youth Gathering. We are in continual conversations with the City of Houston, government officials and Synod leadership monitoring the developments of COVID-19. We will make decisions with the highest priority of safety and care of Gathering participants. It is out prayer that God would continue to lead us through this time of uncertainty and give us wisdom when presented with new information.
What Are the Age Requirements for Participants?

The LCMS Youth Gathering’s primary focus is for youth participants between the ages of 14 to 19. To register for the 2022 Gathering, youth participants must meet ONE of the two following eligibility requirements:

– Must be 14 years old at the time of the Gathering

OR

– Entering his or her ninth-grade year at the time of the Gathering.

While we do allow students from the ages of 14 to 20 to attend, please keep in mind that some of the program content may not be relevant to older youth participants.
When Does Gathering Registration Open?
Registration for the Gathering will open with opportunities to enter data (tentatively September 2021) and then an officially open registration in October 2021.
 
How Much Does it Cost?
The Gathering registration fee is $395 per participant. This fee covers all Gathering program and Office of National Mission Youth Ministry administrative costs and secondary insurance for all participants. Hotel, travel and meal costs are not included in the registration fee.
After March 2, 2022, participants will continue to be admitted to the Gathering on a space available basis for the late registration fee of $450.
 
The next LCMS Youth Gathering will be in 2022 in Houston, TX!
Registration will open in Fall 2021.
