Love Like Jesus an Event for High School Youth

June 16-19, 2016

By Ellen Rothweiler, Event Director

This is the third year of the Southeastern Iowa SyJenni-Kowal-Mary-Oliver-Photography-Muse-Art-Walk-Bend-Oregonnod Service Learning event for high school youth. We will continue our partnership with Grand View University Campus Ministries for this long weekend of fun. The theme for 2016 is a quote from the Mary Oliver poem The Summer Day; “…what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” We are helping students wrestle with this question by talking about what a call to vocation means and providing opportunities for youth to explore their gifts and interact with their neighbors through a day of learning and a day of service.


Love-Like-Jesus-PosterOur artist in residence for the long weekend will be Rachel Kurtz! She will be leading us in worship and spending some time with students on their day of learning. We will play games, have an evening at Gray’s Lake and grow in community as students get to know other Lutheran youth from our synod.  At a cost of $150 this a great event for all congregations, but especially those for whom a week-long trip is not an option.

We hope to see someone from your congregation in Des Moines at Grand View this summer!
