Next summer is the 2018 Triennial ELCA Youth Gathering in Houston! This event is open to Youth who will be entering 8th-12th grade in the Fall of 2017. We will be having an information session about this trip on Sunday, April 2nd, at 9:30 in the Activities Room. Annie Strobel, who attended the 2015 Youth Gathering in Detroit, will be there to answer any first-hand experience questions you may have. I know that financial concerns are generally the first issue that arises when discussing trips like these, but our goal is to fund-raise the entire cost of the trip. If your family is interested in joining us on this once-or twice-in a lifetime experience, I encourage you to attend this meeting. If you have any questions or are interested in participating, but can't attend the meeting, please let me know! I look forward to sharing this journey with you!
