The LCMS is a praying church. On July 16, 2016, 25,000 youth and adults will gather for the 2016 LCMS Youth Gathering. As participants prepare for the opening Mass Event, we invite the church at large to share posts of prayer, support, and encouragement for all those attending in person.
Your messages will be a blessing to all who view them through the social streams that evening. As Gathering participants enter the dome, your messages will appear on the ribbon boards around the Dome. This is one way our local communities can show their love and support to those attending the event.
Join us and help lift up #NYG2016 participants us by using the hashtag #thisisMYchurch on Facebook, Twitter, and beyond. Let’s send messages of hope, love, and encouragement into our social streams to wrap the entire Gathering in prayer.

Dear Heavenly Father, please watch over the participants of the 2016 LCMS Youth Gathering. May your Holy Spirit be at work through the Bible studies, presentations, mass events, and worship service. Protect #NYG2016 this week and may it be a moment in the lives of these youth and adults that focuses their minds on You and reminds them of the love You have already so graciously showered upon them through the death and resurrection of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen. #NYG2016 #thisisMYchurch
Thanks for supporting the young people in your congregation and community!
