Watch Our Progress!

Are you curious about how far we’re getting in our fundraising
quest toward the trip?  Keep an eye on the map in the lobby to watch
how far we have gotten together.  Don’t worry—the route on the map
is NOT the route we will take to Houston!! Every time the bus moves,
we have raised another $1,000 toward sending 30 people from our
congregation on our great ministry adventure!

In July 2015, 15 youth and 5 adults attended the ELCA National Youth Gathering in Detroit. 
What a moving and fun experience for all.  Here are some pictures from that event.
