The National Youth Gathering

Held every 3 years since 1980, the LCMS Youth Gathering (July 9-13) provides thousands of youth and adults the opportunity to come together as a community of God’s people to learn more about Jesus Christ, the Christian faith and their Lutheran identity. During the five days of the Gathering, youth spend time together in God’s word, worship, service and fellowship with others from across the synod.

Coming soon to your congregation's mailbox! Adult Leaders, be on the look out for your group's Gathering poster!   Some of you have already received it but if you haven't, please let me know.  Your Congregational ID number will be located on the envelope! This number will be required for groups to begin their Gathering registration this September.  The official gathering registration (postmark date) begins Nov. 1, 2021.  If you have any questions, feel free to ask.  Jen de la Motte - NYG Coordinator for CNH District - 209-324-9098 or

LCMS Youth Servant Events

LCMS Servant Events provide opportunities for Christian service to the Church and world. They include personal Bible study, group building, and connection with other Christian youth. They give youth a chance to live what they believe by relating acts of service to daily life. They take youth out of their comfort zone and into the reality of others. They give youth the desire to share their love of Christ with the people of the world.
