2018 ELCA Youth Gathering
2018 ELCA Youth Gathering THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING!
GLOBAL FARM CHALLENGE
This #changeiseverything campaign is inspired by our Bethlehem Gathering group. Their goal for Bethlehem members is to raise enough money to buy one farm ($715) and 2 oxen and a plow ($1,000) through ELCA World Hunger. We also have a Bethlehem member who will generously match two farms! Bring your change (noisy offering) to the church and leave it in the trough. Watch our corn stalk grow as we exceed our goal. “Quiet” money is also welcome! Make checks payable to Bethlehem with “Global Farm Challenge” clearly marked. Envelopes may be found in the trough. To learn more, visit elca.org/globalfarmchallenge
We are so grateful for the way Bethlehem members support our youth prior to, during, and even after the Gathering. This faith forming cross-generational culture is cultivated through Bethlehem’s Vibrant Faith Ministry. #changeiseverything
About the Gathering
Every three years, 30,000 high school youth and their adult leaders from across the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America gather for a week of faith formation known as the Gathering. Through days spent in interactive learning, worship, Bible study, service, and fellowship, young people grow in faith and are challenged and inspired to live their faith in their daily lives.
