In just a few weeks, thousands of LCMS youth and adults from across the country and around the world will gather in Minneapolis for the 2019 LCMS Youth Gathering, July 11–15.
Organized by LCMS Youth Ministry and held every three years, the Gathering provides attendees with the opportunity to worship, serve, spend time in God’s Word and enjoy fellowship with other LCMS youth and adults.
If you can’t attend the Gathering, you can still follow along and participate through these online channels:
- The Gathering website will host livestreams of mass events and worship services, as well as blog posts, photos and videos from day to day. Visit lcmsgathering.com to stay up to date and find more information about the schedule, events and speakers, as well as resources for adult leaders.
- The Gathering app is available to download in the Apple Store and Google Play Store. Although the app is primarily for attendees, it can be used to learn more about Gathering speakers.
- Youth Gathering social media will share exclusive content featuring highlights from the Gathering. Follow the Gathering on Facebook (@lcmsnyg), Instagram (@lcmsnyg), Twitter (@lcmsnyg) and Snapchat (@lcmsnyg) to get connected, and use the hashtag #NYG2019 to join the conversation. LCMS social media channels will also cover the event on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @TheLCMS.
- Bible studies based on the theme of the Gathering, “Real. Present. God.”, are available on the Gathering website. Visit lcmsgathering.com/biblestudy to delve deeper into this theme along with the youth.
- If you can’t attend or follow along in any of the above ways, you can still pray for the youth during the week, that they might be strengthened through worship, fellowship and God’s Word.
