National ELCA Youth Gathering July 15-19

Wednesday, July 15, 2015, 8:00 am

Detroit, Michigan

Finally all our planning, studying and fund raising has paid off. This summer 8 youth and 2 adults from St Peter’s and 4 youth from Good Shepard in King of Prussia will be joining 30,000 other’s at the gathering.   It is four days of service, faith formation and fun.  Our theme this year is Rise Up Together.   We will focus on the book of Mark, as those you whom have studied with us in our preparatory material know.

We will be on a three day rotation with our synod.  Thursday is Proclaim Justice.  We will be doing Community service, most likely we will be working on a beautification project somewhere in the city.  Detroit  has a downtown that has been devastated by people moving to the burbs leaving abandoned properties.

Friday is Proclaim Story.  We will spend the afternoon with the youth from our synod and the Bishop in faith formation and learning.  We will be learning how to tell our faith story.  Saturday is Proclaim community.  We will spend the day in the Cobo Center which houses the “Interactive Center”  Here we can do anything from framing houses for Habitat, to seeing what it feels like to have to haul your water like  women in sub Saharan Africa . We can also ride a zip line or do a rope course.

So come July 15-19 keep Robin, Brian, Jessica, Allison T, Isabelle, Robert, Garrett, Allison G, Rachel and Cate, along with our friends from Good Shepard ( Eric, Elizabeth, Willie, and Andy) is your thought and prayers as we go forward in our Faith Journey. And as always thanks for you support.
