Hawley Lutheran LCMC Youth Gathering Called to Serve- Called to Lead- July 17-July 24 (Open to High Schoolers on up)
Have you ever wondered what God’s call on your life might be or how you can make a difference in your community? You are definitely not alone! Join us for our next summer youth event and find out! Our theme for 2022 is The Way, The Truth, The Life and we will be focusing on what it looks like to truly love God, ourselves, and one another. Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ’s summer youth event is designed to be a leadership development experience for both students and our student leaders. Everything at this youth event is designed to empower youth ministry in the local church and encourage students to consider the vocation of ministry in the future. - GROW: Get inspired and gain practical advice on what God may be calling YOU to do through keynote presentations and breakout sessions. - SERVE: Lend a hand and make a real difference in the Des Moines community! We will be partnering with Meals from the Heartland to help feed people in need. - PLAY: Connect with other high school students and youth leaders from LCMC, then head out to The Green for mixers, games, inflatables, and an ice cream social. We’ve also set aside time in our schedule for you to spend quality time with your crew! We will be staying in the air conditioned dormitories on the campus of Grand View University with access to all their amenities: gymnasium, food service, internet, student center, and more.

We will be doing a 3 day mission trip to the Duluth area of Minnesota and the Superior Wisconsin area. We will be staying in different churches along the way and our final night will be slept out on the beach of Lake Superior at Camp Amnicon, across the bay from Duluth. We will do a different service project, or multiple service projects each day. We will spend an afternoon at the Split Rock Lighthouse, and Gooseberry Falls. A lot of fun to be had!
