RISE UP ELCA YOUTH GATHERING IN DETROIT

 

Daily Programs

There were five major components to the 2015 ELCA Youth Gathering daily programming.Each day, youth, volunteers and their Adult Leaders gathered in Ford Field to hear the day’s Scripture text articulated by engaging speakers and Christian musicians, as well as stimulating video and interpretive dance.
 
During the middle of the day, congregational groups participated in a three-day activity rotation that includes a day of service in the Detroit metropolitan area (Proclaim Justice Day), a day of exploratory learning with other groups from their synod (Proclaim Story Day), and a day of interactive learning in the Convention Center (Proclaim Community Day.)
 
The fifth program component is called Community Life, which takes place in various venues, including some hotels. The Community Life activities included dances, game rooms, prayer stations, and an activity called Final 15. The Final 15 was introduced at the 2006 ELCA Youth Gathering in San Antonio, and has been a program staple ever since. It is a 15-minute time period where everyone at the Gathering, regardless of where they are located, stops to pray and reflect on the Scripture of the day.The Gathering concluded with Eucharist on Sunday morning, at which Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton preached.
