Did you know that a group of Calvary youth will be going to Detroit in July of 2015 for the ELCA youth Gathering? Seven students have stepped up to the challenge and will be heading to Detroit for five days of service, worship, spiritual growth and interaction with youth from all over the United States. It is a life changing experience that will help to strengthen their faith and stir up a passion for service in their own communities.
Those who will be attending are (pictured at left): Tyler Bugert, Mitchell Bugert, Noah Kropp, Tina Hoppler, Hailey Strawser, Anna Chamberlain, and Trent Fernandez. Sonja Kropp and Matt Byrd will be the chaperones. As we journey together towards Detroit, we will be working to build a cohesive group that is comfortable with each other and knows each other well. Our mini “family” will be challenged to do great things this year. How can you help? First we ask for your prayers so that we can be successful in our endeavor as we grow closer to each other and to God. Pray that our fundraising efforts are successful. Fundraising has already started for our trip and we will be looking to receive funds from outside the congregation first. Stay tuned for some of our upcoming fundraisers including; Flamingos, a silent auction, and a benefit concert by Bowling for Jesus. Any funds we receive that exceed our fundraising goal will be transferred to the capital campaign. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Matt Byrd.
