Warmth in Winter: A Transformative Area-wide Youth OpportunityPosted: January 8, 2021 Filed under: Bishop's Blog | Tags: Warmth in Winter, young people, youth Comments Off on Warmth in Winter: A Transformative Area-wide Youth Opportunity
It’s been my pleasure to participate in some way at Warmth in Winter over the past few years, and this year is no exception. Even though the event will look very different than in the past, our young people and youth leaders will still come together virtually for a weekend of worship, music and fun. I am looking forward to being there to worship with them!
For those of you new to this event, Warmth in Winter is a place for our teens to deepen their faith, connect as a group, and grow together with the larger church. We usually host over 2,000 youth who gather together in a big hall. The pandemic has forced a redesign of the event for 2021.
The team planning Warmth in Winter put together a brief video to explain how things will work this year. I’m including it on my blog to help them get out the word – to the entire Episcopal Area. One of the big advantages of holding this event online is that ALL of our churches to the east AND west can easily participate. I encourage you to do so.
Over the past 40 years, Warmth in Winter has transformed the lives of many young people. I have no doubt it will again this year. I hope to “see” you there!
Message from WnW planning team members
While we know this is a little different, we are excited about what God is going to do through this new, and outside the box, year!
The cost is $35 per person and for all supplies -except for food- including a t-shirt for every person signed up. But, register soon! This cost will go up to $45 per person after January 15.
