Emmanuel Lutheran Church
Menominee - Michigan
Eleven of Emmanuel’s high school students will be attending the upcoming ELCA Youth Gathering. The gathering is held every three years and the 2018 event will be held in Houston, Texas from June 27-July1, in 2018. This amazing experience provides an opportunity to worship, to be in service, to grow in your faith and to have a lot of fun with 30,000 other high school youth from across the nation. Our youth have been busy fundraising to help offset the costs to attend this event. Watch for ways you can help get our youth to Houston! Please contact the church office for more information.
