Making An Impact

For the first time, one of the largest events of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS), the triennial Youth Gathering, was held in our region. More than 22,000 youth and adults converged July 11-15 utilizing 69 hotels in Minneapolis, Saint Paul, Bloomington and other metro area communities. LCMS is a denomination of approximately 6,100 congregations worldwide. Nearly 600 congregations are right here in Minnesota.
