Another NEW to our Ohio District event is PASTOR JEFFREY MEINZ. Jeffrey has spoken at a number youth events throughout the USA.  Some adults may recognize him from doing the "Gathering News" at the LCMS National Gathering.

The Gathering once again will be a full weekend for our 6th, 7th and 8th graders along with their chaperons. We'll tour through activities to get to know new friends, crafts, Bible studies, worship, listening, learning and a whole lot of fun! Exactly what we'd expect with a few hundred middle-school students and their leaders.

The Gathering will begin promptly at 7:30 on Friday evening and conclude by Noon on Sunday. The $170 registration fee covers 2 nights in the hotel (quad-housing), 3 meals on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday as well as all Gathering costs.

For more information on registering, go on the District website: Once there go to 'Congregations', then 'Youth and Family', then to 'Forms and Procedures'.

The DEADLINE to register at the early rate is to have your registration postmarked on or before February 1, 2019.
