High schoolers from our congregation will be traveling to New Orleans this week to attend the ELCA National Youth Gathering on July 18-22. The theme for this year's event is "citizens with the saints." Those attending are Matthew Buchbinder, Alex Brayton, Logan DeVries, Gabe Ho, Katie Maxwell, Anna Modrich, Jesseca and Jazzmin Robertson, Anna Scudiero, Olivia Thompson, and Heather Zurowski, accompanied by Larry and Ramona Robertson and Pastor Faulstich. Keep them in your prayers and plan to attend the Adult Ed session on July 29 when they will report on their experience.
