Through continuous reformation, the Church embraces in holiness and into wholeness people of all sexual orientations and gender identities, strengthening us for authentic, visible, faithful lives. Dedicated to radical reconciliation, the Church falls into the heart of God's passionate intent, co-creating a world without outcasts, calling all to serve as guests and hosts at God's table of blessing and power.

NATIONAL YOUTH GATHERING
About the Gathering
Every three years there is a National Youth Gathering which takes place in different places around the country. About 30,000 youth and adult leaders from all over the ELCA come to worship, serve, and grow in their faith journeys together. There is time spent as a big gathering group and time spent in the community being God's hands and feet. The Gathering is open to students entering 9th grade - recent high school graduates at the time of the Gathering.
The next Gathering is during the summer of 2018 in Houston, TX. The dates of the Gathering
June 27- July 1, 2018. The theme for this year is "This Changes Everything" where we will dig into our faith focusing on Ephesians 2:8, "By grace you have been saved..."
It is a long tradition at Bethesda to bring in drummer from around the world, celebrate their talents, and share the cultures that make the Lutheran faith beautifully diverse.
