The youth who are attending the ELCA National Youth Gathering in New Orleans this July are very close to reaching their fundraising goal. There is one last important opportunity to support our efforts by becoming a Trip Shareholder! A Trip Shareholder is a person/couple/family that invests in our trip to the ELCA National Youth Gathering by donating $25 or more before June 30, 2012. All Trip Shareholders will receive a personal thank you card, a shareholder’s “stock certificate,” a souvenir from New Orleans, and an invitation to a Trip Shareholders event in August where you will learn about the life changing experiences from the youth and adult leaders themselves. To get a donation form and become a shareholder, contact the church office (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Pastor Ryan (email@example.com).
