In addition to the small groups, large group gatherings will introduce the theme through worship and music; games will help form the weekend’s community; and service projects will invite youth to apply what they’re learning to hands-on service.

Cost - $200 per person includes program, lodging, meals, activities, and a t-shirt! Scholarships are available - please see the form below. Registrations submitted after January 17 will incur a $50 late fee and are not eligible for scholarships. No registrations will be accepted after January 24.

We are fearfully and wonderfully made...by a God who knows us deeper than we can ever fathom. What does it mean to be created in God’s image? How do we lean into our purpose and better understand our creator? How are we creating meaningful connections like Jesus? Where is there room for rest in our creation? Join us as we wrestle together with these questions and many others.

JUST ANNOUNCED! Lutheran singer songwriter Rachel Kurtz will be at the event to lead us in music! You can learn more about Rachel and her music here

As part of our commitment to serve our communities, local and global, we are assembling Lutheran World Relief School Kits at our youth events this year. To help us collect all the necessary items for these kits, which are distributed among those in need, including the victims of natural disasters, we are asking each congregation to donate supplies to our effort. Many churches host a donation drive for their assigned item (found in the list below), placing a labeled box in a common area of the building and inviting everyone in the congregation to participate. This is a great way to lift up the important role young people play in the life of the greater church! Placing a short blurb in your bulletin or newsletter and announcing the drive during worship goes a long way to ensuring we can assemble the largest number of kits.

All of the items, which can be found here, are helpful.  However, we specifically ask that every congregation bring at least four notebooks per participant and one other item by name of your congregation:

When you arrive at the event on Friday night, you will be able to drop off your collected supplies in the same place you check in. Thank you so much for supporting our commitment to service at youth events!
