2022 LCMS Youth Gathering:

A wonderful experience for the Kansas District!

The Kansas District had a strong presence at the LCMS Youth Gathering, with over 600 participants!

On the first night of the Gathering, Kansas represented their section in a sea of blue shirts at the Minute Maid Stadium. During the week, the Kansas District also participated in two service projects, and had a great district event on Saturday night.

Special thanks to coordinators Amanda Adams (Christ, Topeka) and Debbie Dennett (Trinity, Winfield) for their preparation and leadership!
