“But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name.” John 20:31

I have been getting a lot of questions about the Gathering lately, so I wanted to give you a few tidbits of information.

If you are registered for the Gathering, you should have received your housing assignment by now. This will help you get a better handle on how much money the Gathering will really cost you. As you are calculating the total cost of lodging for your group, please remember that we are unable to use tax exemption status in New Orleans, so make sure to factor in taxes for your rooms as well. If you haven’t received your housing assignment yet, please contact someone in the Youth Ministry Office in St. Louis.

Concerning registration… On-line registration has now concluded so if you are wanting to add youth or adults please send in the registration forms to the Youth Ministry Office along with the deposit or final payment. Remember that all additions need to be postmarked by June 1st and all substitutions need to be postmarked by July 1st.

I would also like to draw your attention to our website, www.lcmsgathering.com. Answers to many of your questions can be found on the website so please check there first if you have any questions concerning any part of the Gathering. I hope that even if you don’t have questions or concerns, you still visit the website. There is so much good stuff on the website and it will only benefit you and your group by visiting and preparing for the Gathering!

May God continue to bless you as you continue on the Road to the Gathering!
