30 Hour Famine

On April 20-21, our youth group will participate in World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine. We’re fasting for 30 hours to get a taste of hunger—and to raise money to help feed and care for hungry kids and their families around the world.
You can help by (a) praying for our students and by (b) sponsoring our students through a donation. We will have youth out and about on Sunday if you would like to make a donation.

World Vision is a Christian relief and development organization dedicated to helping children and their communities worldwide reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty. Motivated by our faith in Jesus, we serve the poor as a demonstration of God’s unconditional love for all people. We serve the world’s poor – regardless of a person’s religion, race, ethnicity, or gender.

World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine started in the U.S. 18 years ago as a way for junior high, high school and college-age students to help save – and change – children’s lives. By going without food for 30 hours and raising money to help needy children, young people experience true hunger and learn powerful lessons of compassion for those who live with hunger daily. By gaining a deeper awareness of the needs in our world, your teen will realize that they can play a vital role in making a difference.
