Youth Gathering News from Peg – February 18, 2018

February 18, 2018

Houston trekkers,

I have several things for you to know:

1. BUSES We have 4 synod buses contracted. They will be sub-contracted to the Gathering for the time we are in Texas. For those of you that have volunteers, or people going to MYLE or theTable, we have space that would allow them to ride the bus home (cost would be $160.00). Simply contact me with their information. (BTW – we will have a church from Chicago-Metro riding the bus with us.) Payment ($315.00/person) is due by April 15, 2018. (I couldn’t resist!) You may pay at any time. Make your check(s) out to St. Paul LYO.

2. HOTELS On the ELCA Gathering page, in your congregational information section of your registration, you will find the name of your hotel and an approximate cost. Remember that you will have rooms of 2 and rooms of 4; I would suggest that you figure out a shared cost system for your youth and adults.

3. CRE On March 10 at Kishwaukee College we will be having our Congregational Resourcing Event. I will be holding two sessions for Q & A. I’m not certain which times or locations – we’ll find out then. Whether or not you attend, PLEASE have someone from your church stop by the session. I will have “old-fashioned” stuff to hand out!! AND I will need the order form for the Synod Day t-shirts turned in to me. Send me one copy, keep the other for your records. The shirts will be handed out at the synod assembly in June.

4. TSHIRTS Order form is attached below.

Double check your main leader’s registration. Check on number of rooms, check on whether or not you’re marked for Gathering transportation, and check on any changes/edits you may need to make on youth or adults. Take a look at any balance you may have. Check the deadlines listed there. Until we are closer to the final deadlines, make changes by editing, not deleting and then entering a new person. You would lose your first deposit if you don’t follow this suggestion.

Remember if you have any questions you may contact me through email, phone or snail mail.

God bless your Lenten journey to the cross.
