Dear NT-NL Leaders:
Summer is here! And with it a different style of programming and opportunities. I pray this summer you will both take time for fun and rest but also look forward to the coming year. Particularly those involved in youth and young adult ministry we need to be planning for ELCA Gathering 2024. In coming weeks we will be making some announcements about ways that we will be supporting your congregations in getting youth and young adults to this great event. First off we will again have a Bishop’s group for those with 3 or less youth and no adult sponsor. We also will be providing financial support for the gathering and transportation thanks to our Briarwood Legacy Endowment. And also below my article see an opportunity for those who may want to work or volunteer at the gathering.
Registration opens Sept 15, 2023. So you need to be making plans now and I look forward to seeing you in New Orleans. If you have questions please contact Janelle Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also hear from Janelle and some of our youth at our assembly at https://youtu.be/uB-1VxFCK9s.
