2017-2018 Youth Events theme
What does this mean?
Two thousand years ago, an edgy rabbi from Galilee gathered a group of losers and started traveling from town to town, stirring up trouble in synagogues, hanging out with social outcasts, healing the sick, casting out demons, and getting into fights with the powers that be. Five hundred years ago, a snarky and faithful German monk named Martin Luther started causing trouble in the name of Jesus in Germany and throughout Europe.
Here’s the thing — the Holy Spirit is always up to something. Always challenging our assumptions. Always troubling people in power. Always working toward justice. Always calling us to repentance. Always raising us to new life. Always reforming … reforming us, reforming our church, reforming our society. Together we’ll draw from God’s Word and our confessional foundations to dive deep into this ongoing work of Reformation.
About Our Youth Events
Young people and adult leaders from across our synod gather for a weekend of fun, Bible study, service, worship, and community building in large groups as well as smaller ones. Each day ends with Family Time, an opportunity for prayer and reflection. We offer separate events for Middle and High School youth.
