Plan to be a part of one of the synod's richest traditions - the Senior High Youth Gathering November 18-20 at the YMCA in Estes Park.

GPS, God's Positioning System, is the theme. David Vasquez, a campus pastor and dynamic speaker, brings the Biblical story alive. He is a featured speaker for the ELCA Glocal Gatherings across the country. We are truly blessed to have him spend time with our young people and the adults who accompany them.

An added bonus is a Saturday evening concert by AGAPE and Rachel Kurtz, as part of the Citizens with the Saints tour. 

The cross+generational planning team has worked all year in preparation and anticipation of welcoming you and hosting you for this Christ centered, faith-forming weekend.

See you there!

P.S. The RMS has more than 35 congregations who have already registered for the 2012 ELCA Youth Gathering - so we hope to see you at our very own SHYG!  It is more than a "warm-up," it is the real thing!
