Calling all VA Synod high schoolers!
We are excited to announce that we are working hard to plan a full slate of in-person youth events this year!
Winter Celebration will take place Friday, January 27th through Sunday, January 29th. More information about how to register will be uploaded here soon, be on the lookout late in 2022 for registration forms.
Winter Celebration is our annual weekend retreat for youth in 9th through 12th grade, as well as their adult advisors.
We have Large Group gatherings that consist of singing, energy, comedy, worship and Planning Group presentations on our event theme. After each Large Group gathering, participants will gather in Small Groups. These are made up of a handful of youth and a couple adult leaders. In small groups, participants will get to know other Lutheran youth from Virginia and discuss life, faith as well as other topics that arise throughout the weekend.
On Saturday afternoon there is large chunk of Free Time during which participants can continue to build relationships, enjoy outdoor recreation, visit the Eagle Eyrie coffee shop and ice cream parlor, and so much more. Our annual Talent Show will also take place during this time, it’s a great time to support your friends as well as show off a unique talent.
In the evenings you will relax in your Cottage and gather with other youth and adults from your congregation, and other congregations, to talk about how the weekend is going.
Early Registration ends Dec. 19, 2022!
We hope to see you there!
The Rev. Dave Delaney
Director for Youth & Young Adult Ministry
