Description

FLY Pilgrimage to Minneapolis

When was the last time you mounted up with wings as eagles? (Is. 40:31). 

Consider this your invitation to “fly” with the youth of First Lutheran as they prepare to travel the 1300-mile pilgrimage to Minneapolis for the 2022 National Youth Gathering. They’re readying their hearts and their carryons for the triennial journey. Let’s help them get ready by taking our own pilgrimage with them, and let’s have fun along the way!

The Gathering—and the pilgrimage to get there—is a physical, spiritual, relationship, and service experience that will challenge youth to grow in these areas of their lives. We will grow, too. Beginning February 17, 2021, the first day of Lent, any church member (youth or otherwise) can participate in a 4-month virtual, multi-faceted challenge. Some of us will actually complete the tasks; others of us will pledge prayer, financial, or emotional support; some of us may even do both. Together we can embrace our group of young travelers as we help cover their travel costs and fill their backpacks with love and prayer.

So, pilgrims, whether you’re riding your bicycle to your favorite bakery; learning new insights about the Sermon on the Mount; finding out about the childhood home of your next-door neighbor, or serving a meal to someone who has fond memories of Grandma’s apple pie, you can count the experience as miles on your pilgrimage. Get ready to spread your wings. We’ll see you at takeoff on February 17!
