This weekend is 30 Hour Famine! This event is sponsored by World Vision. Before the event our students are encouraged to raise as much money as they can for children around the world who are in poverty; our youth group has raised over $20,000 throughout our years of doing this. The purpose of the event on Friday and Saturday is to help our students experience what it is like for children around the world that are living in poverty. Our students will fast for 30 hours, 12pm Friday to 6pm Saturday.
The event starts at 6pm on Friday, April 17 and goes till 6:30pm on Saturday, April 18. The cost for the event is $5 for the food when we break the fast. Since this is an overnight, students need to remember to bring a change of clothes. They will participate in a service project, so make sure to bring clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty! We hope to see this weekend as we fast for children in need!
