ELCA NATIONAL YOUTH GATHERING!

What is the "Practice Justice" day? Practice Justice is one of three days at the ELCA Youth Gathering (Thursday, Friday, Saturday) to which youth groups are assigned. On each of those days, a third of the community will practice discipleship, a third will practice peacemaking and a third will practice justice. All three days are designed to help youth make real the covenant God made with them in Holy Baptism to live among God’s faithful people; hear the word of God and share in the Lord’s supper;proclaim the good news of God in Christ through word and deed;serve all people, following the example of Jesus and strive for justice and peace in all the earth. The ELCA Youth Gathering is a witness to Jesus' invitation to hit the streets, to follow one's convictions with actions, and to join God's work in the world. Registration for all interested 9th-12th graders opens October 9th. Contact Tracy today to get your name on our pre-reg list!
