It is time for Calvary Youth to attend the National Youth Gathering in 2015!!

Posted on Wed, Jul 9, 2014

The next National Youth Gathering is held July 15-19, 2015 in Detroit, Michigan. And YES, we'll be going all the way there from Oahu and certainly others from Hawaii too!

Dear friends,

 

I wanted to put a bug in your ears!  A BIG Youth Gathering bug that is! :) 

 

We, in the ELCA, are blessed with multiple events and gatherings for teens! Western States Youth Gatherings are awesome and I'm so grateful many of us were able to go from Oahu! 

 

But, we also have a National Youth Gathering every few years in some part of the country - it moves around to different cities. 

 

The National Youth Gathering is an awesome event that usually gathers 35,000+ teens from around the country! There are speakers, music, massive worship, service projects, and so much more! I spent many years attending these events when I was a teen and later as a young adult volunteer.  They were very powerful and formative in my faith development. I want our Oahu teens to have these awesome opportunities too!

 

So!! Please mark your calendars NOW for next Summer! Make arrangements in your family plans so that you can send your teens! 

 

Church leaders! Put it on your church calendars!!!!!!!  Now! And start advertising. If you don't have posters yet, contact ELCA youth Ministry and they'll send you some... 

 

The next National Youth Gathering is held July 15-19, 2015 in Detroit, Michigan. And YES, we'll be going all the way there from Oahu and certainly others from Hawaii too! 

 

I'll be setting a meeting in the early, early fall of this year to meet with anyone interested from Oahu. Registration is already in October!  Rest assured we'll be talking about it at the next OYEA (Oahu Youth Education and Activities  board meeting to prepare, plan and organize.

 

But, for now, mark your calendars! and stay tuned!
