See all of the fun and activities at Augustana's annual Faith Fest event, from 2008 to today.
Over 160 confirmation-aged youth and their adult leaders attended Faith Fest 2011 to hear featured musician David Scherer (Agapé) and enjoy music and worship, games and Bible study, service and fellowship. At Kids Against Hunger Sioux Falls, the group packed more than 19,000 meals this year, a project funded by the West Minnehaha Chapter of Thrivent Financial.
Faith Fest 2010 featured musicians David Scherer (Agapé) and Rachel Kurtz throughout the event. On Saturday afternoon, each Faith Fest participant spent several hours at the Kids Against Hunger Sioux Falls packing site, packing 15,608 packages of the specially formulated rice-soy casserole, enough to feed 36 people for a year.
Forty-eight Faith Fest participants and Augustana student leaders worked together on Saturday afternoon, February 7, to create twelve fleece blankets to warm women and children at Children's Inn in Sioux Falls. Children's Inn provides free services to victims of domestic violence. The project was funded with a financial contribution from Sioux Falls Rotary West.
Faith Fest 2008 was a huge success! With over 100 local students and youth leaders, we celebrated the theme, 'Ridin' the J-Train." We explored the verse from Mark 8: 34, "He called the crowd with his disciples, and said to them, If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me."
