National Youth Gathering Houston 2018
We have received a thank you from the ELCA for out National Youth Gathering Offering. Our contribution went to the Global Ministry Projects; Prison Congregations of America and Texas Louisiana Gulf Coast Synod. “Your support empowers good work in Jesus’ name.”
Campfirmation is a partnership between LUTHERIDGE and youth groups of congregations called CLUSTERS. Campers stay in cabins with other middle school youth and a college-age counselor. Many counselors have a history with Lutheridge from their camper days and are well trained, responsible, and excellent role models of Jesus’ love. Pastors or other congregation leaders plan, lead, and participate in daily teaching sessions. Leaders are welcome to join the youth and their counselors in activities such as swimming, crafts, games, skits, singing, campfires, hikes, and an off-site outing. So much faith learning happens during this week! Lasting relationships among adults and youth are forged as well. Below are pictures from Emmanuel Lutherans Confirmands week at Campfirmation!
Youth Ministry met Sunday September 11th. Everyone had a great meal and then participated in the Build a Marshmallow and Spaghetti Tower Challenge!! Note the winning tower had to stand-alone.
