Rocky Mountain Synod 2019 Youth Gathering

January 19-21, 2019
YMCA of the Rockies, Estes Park, CO

Gathering Scriptures: Psalm 139:13-14 * Ephesians 4:1-2 * Romans 12:1-7 * Matthew 22:36-40

This year's Gathering will focus on each participant as a uniquely created child of God called to live out baptismal promises in unique and various ways. We will look at themes of spiritual gifts, vocation, community, and service as we gather and are then sent to boldly share the love of God in this world. The YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park will also let us explore creation and relaxation in the mountains as we enjoy fellowship with middle and high school students from all parts of the Rocky Mountain Synod. While all students will gather for some large group worship time, separate tracks for Middle and High School students will allow each group to participate in age-appropriate conversation and activity based learning.

The Gathering will begin with dinner at 5 p.m. on Jan 19 and end at 11:00 a.m. on Jan 21.
