Boundless Creation Youth Retreat

July 22 - July 24

After the ELCA Youth Gathering was cancelled our two synods started thinking of ways to put together an event on a smaller scale for our youth. Mar-Lu-Ridge was able to provide the location for a one-day event with optional overnight accommodations for some of the attendees. “Boundless Creation” was one aspect of the original theme of the Youth Gathering which we chose to use as our theme as we gather together in God’s Boundless Creation at Mar-Lu-Ridge.

We have several options for registration based on whether your group would like to attend just for the day or stay overnight at Mar-Lu-Ridge Friday and/or Saturday. There is a cap of 150 total attendees for the event. First priority will go to groups that registered for the Youth Gathering.

Register Here no later than May 27.

If you are interested in helping organize this event, please contact Katharyn Wheeler at kwheeler@metrodcelca.org.
