The Gathering is an opportunity for youth to engage with their peers from across the United States and the world and who share a common commitment and faith in Christ.

Please support them with your prayers.

You also will have a few more opportunities to provide financial support for our attending youth -- at the car washes at CtK on May 30 and June 27 and by buying food at the CtK Flea Market on June 4.

The Church confesses Christ, who has broken down the dividing wall (Ephesians 2:14). Christ, our
peace, has put an end to the hostility of race, ethnicity, gender, and economic class. The Church
proclaims Christ, confident this good news sets at liberty those captive behind walls of hostility
(cf. Luke 4:18).
