the tAble

Overview and Key Dates

As a pre-event to the Gathering, the tAble blesses and empowers young people who live with a wide range of physical, cognitive and emotional disabilities so that they might grow as faithful, wise and courageous witnesses.

the tAble is open to youth ages 14-18 or engaged in a high school youth group or enrolled in high school or the vocational education equivalent. Youth who attend the tAble must be accompanied by an adult companion. The adult companion will not have to pay to attend the 2022 ELCA Youth Gathering with their child; however, they will need to pay to attend the tAble.

the tAble will be held July 21-24, 2022 in the Twin Cities. The cost for the tAble is $190 per person and includes all housing and program expenses, as well as some food expenses during the tAble.

Registration for the tAble is part of Gathering registration, which is currently open. The cost for the tAble will be added to your congregational balance, due in full by June 22, 2022.

Congregations sending participants to the tAble may opt to stay at the tAble’s host hotel, as opposed to their synod’s hotel(s), if moving to another property mid-week will cause undue stress for the tAble participant and ability to fully participate in the Gathering. Congregations will be able to communicate this desire in Winter 2021.
