ELCA YOUTH GATHERING – SUMMER 2022 – INFO MEETING
This coming summer Trinity youth plans to attend the ELCA Youth Gathering in Minneapolis, MN. This is a nation-wide event that has previously been held in Houston and Detroit. You may have heard our groups report on it in years past. This year it’s in in Minneapolis! About 30,000 high school youth gather from across the US together for nightly mass gatherings with speakers & music, interactive learning, worship, service, Bible study, and fellowship.
POSTPONED! Check back for new meeting date – We will have an informational meeting on Wednesday, September 8 at 6:45 p.m. in Fellowship Hall for those interested.
- July 22-28, 2022 (dates are tentative and subject to slight change by a day or so on either side)
- For youth currently in grades 8-12 (fall 2021)
- The actual gathering event starts the evening of July 24 and ends at noon on July 28
- We will either drive cars or bus
- Total cost of trip will depend on travel & hotel costs as well as what sight-seeing type activities we choose to do — we’re estimating about $1200 per person which would include meals
- We as a group will vote on which sight-seeing type things we want to do—options include but are not limited to Valleyfair, Twins baseball game if they’re in town, Mall of America, Zoo, etc.
- Fundraisers are available to help cover or maybe even completely cover the cost
- Non-Refundable Deposit of $150 due with registration form by October 13 to register

The Gathering planning team is keeping an eye on the covid situation and will adjust as needed. For more info on that and everything else come to our meeting on September 8! Can’t make the meeting but interested? Please email or call me and I’m happy to answer any questions you may have.
