Faith Fest 2016: "Ordinary People, Extraordinary God"

Faith Fest 2016Augustana Faith Fest is a fun-filled and faith-filled event for 6th- to 8th-grade youth and their adult leaders and will take place on Saturday, Feb. 6, and Sunday, Feb. 7, at Augustana University. At Faith Fest, you will enjoy music, worship, service projects, games and small group activities as you explore your faith in the setting of a vibrant university campus. Review the schedule of activities for more information.

The registration fee of $50 per youth covers the cost of two meals, a Faith Fest t-shirt (for youth participants only), lodging at the Elmen Center on campus, and all program expenses. Adult leaders are free of charge. Parents and youth leaders will enjoy a separate adult track; a portion of the weekend devoted to training and equipping those who nurture faith in young people. Each congregation attending Faith Fest is asked to send at least one adult leader to participate in all of the weekend’s activities. If more than ten youth are attending, please send additional leaders. This year's schedule will include an off-campus service project component. Be prepared to provide transportation for your youth on Saturday afternoon.

Congregational leaders are asked to fill out a registration form for themselves and the names of all youth attending, and return that form (by mail) by Friday, Jan. 15. Space is limited, so be sure to register early. Please bring copies of each youth's signed permission for treatment and liability waiver forms to registration on the Saturday that Faith Fest begins.
