30 Hour Famine--Ways the Congregation can be Involved.
May 29th from 11:30AM to May 30th at 5:30PM
Fact: Every day, as many as 11,000 kids die from hunger and related causes. Some starve. Some get sick and waste away. Either way, this is not okay with us.
So we’re doing something about it! We’re going hungry for 30 hours with hope of helping those who live in hunger every day.
Pray. Please sign up on the gym bulletin board to pray for us during the famine.
Ask God to help us as we become more mindful of others, overcome hunger and raise funds to help those in need.
We are hoping to have people praying for us each hour during the entire 30 hour famine.
Volunteer. Come join us during our famine or participate at home or work with your family and friends or help provide meal for participants at famine close
Give. $1.32 can provide food and clean drinking water for one day
$40 provides food and clean drinking water for a month
Our goal is $960 to help feed and care for 2 children for one year.
