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 ELCA Youth 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.
Here is your chance to experience this event - THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING. "For it is by grace you have been saved." Ephesians 2:8

Recognizing a need to lift up literacy in Houston, the 2018 ELCA Youth Gathering is “launching” a Literacy Campaign. The goal is to put 100,000 books into the hands of Houston’s economically disadvantaged students. The ELCA’s partners at the Houston Independent School District identified books for gathering participants to bring to Houston. Instead of collecting these books ourselves, we invite you to purchase them online. To simplify, there is a “Wish List” entitled “Blast off for Books” on Amazon. Books ordered from the Amazon wish list will ship directly to a church in Houston that’s collecting them.
