Sr. High Ministry

There are three events geared towards Sr. High Youth (grades 9-12) in the Metro DC Synod:

  • Chrysalis – annual synod-wide weekend retreat held the first weekend in December at the Northern Virginia 4H Center. Registration materials are posted on this website and emailed to congregational Youth Ministry contacts in mid-September. We also mail a postcard to congregations, alerting them that registration materials are available.
  • Chi Rho – week long service experience. We serve HOMES in Neon, Kentucy.
  • ELCA Youth Gathering – every three years the youth of the ELCA gather for a time of learning, service, worship, fellowship and fun. The next gathering will be held in Houston, TX, June 27- July 1, 2018.
