Winterfest is our annual high-school and college event for youth, young adults, and their advisors. Scheduled for January 6-8, 2023, at the Wyndham Resort in Lancaster, this event brings young people together for a weekend of fun, faith formation, and authentic community.  Based on a theme, this year ‘Created for…’ participants gather with peers and small group leaders for conversation around a common curriculum, and they also have the option to attend ‘electives’ which they self-select to discuss the ways their lives intersect with their faith.

Shared meals, inspiring worship, and community life activities all help grow and deepen community and give youth a chance to build relationships with fellow Lutherans from across our synod, whom they often get to see at camp and other youth events throughout the year. To learn more about this year’s event and to get a glimpse of our theme, visit our website at: https://www.lss-elca.org/winterfest/.

This year we will celebrate our 30th anniversary, which actually occured in 2021 when the pandemic brought all events to a screeching halt. As a result, Friday evening we are inviting middle-school youth and families of participants, plus any Winterfest event alumni, to come to the Wyndham for an evening of live music, large group, community life, and a snack. There is a $20 fee for Friday Evening Guests (see ticket below), and while guests may not stay overnight, we would love to help your middle-schoolers and family members who are curious about our events, to get a taste of Winterfest.

There are two types of tickets found below for registering adult advisors, youth, and young adult participants. You can opt to pay in full at the time you register your group, or opt to pay the deposit only. You may also choose whether to pay digitally at the time you register (have a credit card or PayPal information available), or opt to have an ‘Invoice’ sent to you that can submit to your treasurer, and have a check mailed to our office. Those paying the deposit at the time of registration may pay the balance due by check at the event, especially if this helps spread out the payments over two fiscal year budgets.
