Invitation To Serve 2013

Greater Milwaukee Synod
Youth & Young Adult Gathering


  • Whose are we?  
  • Who are We?
  • Who are You?

Registration is closed.

We all struggle with these questions, but perhaps not more so than when we are teenagers and young adults.  So bring your group of high school students or young adults, and join us in exploring these questions at Invitation to Serve, February 1-3, 2013!

This year the Greater Milwaukee Synod is hosting the event at Country Springs Hotel and Water Park in Waukesha.  We welcome back Rachel Kurtz as our musical guest and Genesis Renji as our emcee.  We are thrilled to have Pastor Kacey Hahn from Christ the King Lutheran in Minneapolis, MN as our guest speaker.  We will be creating an identity mural, going off-site to gather stories, worshiping together, and then, of course, there’s the water park.
