The ELCA Faith Formation Team is launching a new ministry called PASSAGE as a sister ministry to the ELCA Young Adults small group ministry, abide. PASSAGE will connect recently graduated high school students from across the country with one another and young adult small group leaders. The communities formed through PASSAGE will be centered on mutual support and wrestling with faith and life in times of transition.

Our scripture for this ministry comes from Isaiah 43, “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you”.

The ongoing purpose of PASSAGE is to connect high school seniors to the next part of their faith journey as a “rite of passage” into ELCA Young Adult Ministry.

Small groups will begin mid June and last for 6 weeks. After filling out your registration, you will be contacted by a Passage Leader.
