Junior High Students Praying Scripture!

Almost 300 junior high students and their adult chaperones came together June 3-5 for an event called "20/20 Vision" to explore the meaning of "fixing our eyes on Jesus" (from Hebrews 12:2). The Junior High Youth Gathering is a yearly event sponsored by the Michigan District of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, and the smiles show that everyone was glad to be back after two years of pandemic cancellations.

Participants traveled from all over the state to Frankenmuth, Michigan - a tourist destination city with a definite gift of hospitality!

Students could enjoy individual group time during their stay at the Bavarian Inn, and experience the game room and pool with water slide. Large events - speakers, meals, and worship - took place "next door" in the pavilion at Frankenmuth Heritage Park.

On Saturday, students traveled to nearby St. Lorenz Lutheran Church for breakout sessions.
