ZOOMfest 2021

Epiphany Weekend ZOOMfest!

In a community gripped by fear, the magi step on in, and there they find themselves overwhelmed with joy! It's there that they open their gifts before the infant Jesus, not for their own benefit but in the joy of being in the presence of Christ. In this time when fear has its grip on so much of our life together, how can we step into the middle of it and therein find our joy as we celebrate who we are and who we are being created to be in Christ?



Gather on ZOOM of course! Join us on Zoom or Facebook for a weekend of joy through the sharing of our creative gifts and the gifts God has given us in creation. There will be concerts, sing-alongs, cartoonfests, community art, cooking classes, prayer through photography and baking, happy hour, and a synod-wide Sunday worship. 

There is a suggested donation of $25/household. All proceeds above & beyond event costs will benefit Augustana Arts City Strings Program and The Pueblo Indian Cultural Center.
