Announcements, Updates and Upcoming Events

2022 LCMS YOUTH GATHERING


Held every 3 years since 1980, the LCMS Youth Gathering (Gathering) provides thousands of youth and adults the opportunity to come together as a community of God’s people to learn more about Jesus Christ, the Christian faith and their Lutheran identity. 

During the 5 days of the Gathering, youth spend time together in God’s Word, worship, service and fellowship with others from across the synod. This event is organized by LCMS Youth Ministry in Saint Louis, MO. 


Please email Mrs. Droste at christianed@orelc.org if you are thinking about becoming a Youth Participant at the National 2022 Gathering!

 

ALTAR GUILD: SERVING BEHIND THE SCENES

This group of volunteers helps prepare the Altar and Sanctuary for Sunday morning services. This includes things like filling candles, caring for altar linens, and setting up/taking down for communion and baptisms. Members work in teams and are usually on duty a few times per year. Each member is trained by and works with an experienced member for as long as necessary.
