National Youth Gathering 2019

Abiding Savior is attending the LCMS National Youth Gathering in Minneapolis, MN, July 11-15, 2019! Real. Present. God. 2019 will focus on Psalm 46:1 – “God is our refuge and strength. A very present help in trouble” and what it means to have a God who is real, always present with us, and cares deeply for us. Our trip will extend from July 10-16 (tentative). The cost goal for those who actively participate in our group fundraising policy is $500, which includes airfare, transportation, hotel, food, group t-shirts, and gathering registration.

Since 1980, the LCMS National Youth Gathering has taken place every three years in a different city in the United States. Host cities include San Antonio, TX, Denver, CO, New Orleans, LA, Orlando, FL, and others. 2019 will be the first time Minneapolis has ever hosted a National Youth Gathering. The NYG is the single largest gathering of LCMS Lutherans in the world, and is an amazing opportunity to worship, learn, serve, and experience Minneapolis with 20,000 other high school students from all over the United States! This is an experience that you will remember for the rest of your life! Don’t miss out!
