Youth
  • 2018 Canadian Lutheran Anglican Youth Gathering
    :
    Join youth from across Canada in August 2018 as we meet in 
    Thunder Bay, ON!
    A bit about the theme:
    Stories are the diverse threads that God weaves together to form the tapestry of our lives. They can be ancient, personal, intimate, and can help us find meaning and purpose. We gather stories from each other and from our surroundings.
    Join youth from across Canada at THREADS, where we will learn how to discern our God-given stories. Come and be a part of the story of CLAY!
