Youth Group World Vision 30 Hour Famine

May 17th at 7:00 AM

We will be fasting and raising money to feed and care
for children in need on May 17 and 18. We welcome any
youth or young adult who would like to fast with us. Every
$40 we raise will help feed and care for a child for a month.
Our church goal this year is $480, which will help to feed
and care for a child for one year. World Vision puts the
funds we raise to work by bringing emergency food aid to
disaster zones and equipping families with the tools they
need to overcome hunger in their communities. Our support will help families get on their feet and stand strong.

what does the Lord require of you but to do justice,
and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
Micah 6:8 (RSV)

Instructions for the Two-Day Event:
Stop eating at 7:00am on Friday, May 17*. (Before
7:00am, eat a good breakfast with lots of protein and fiber—the stuff that will help sustain you.) Go to school, but
do not eat. Drink LOTS of fluids throughout the day—
water, Gatorade, juice, etc. It’s smart to stay away from
carbonated and caffeinated drinks. Come to church at
6:30pm. We will help serve refreshments and clean up after the Suburban Singers concert at church. Then we will
play parts of the Tribe game, learn lots about who we are
helping, and most importantly…SLEEP! On Saturday
morning, we will volunteer our time—details later. We
will break the fast together at 1:00pm and be finished with
the activities by 2:00pm.

If you have any questions or want to participate, please
talk to Kristin. Fundraising packets will be available if you
would like to also raise funds on your own.

*If you have a sport practice or a game on Friday afternoon, May 17, you should have a snack after your practice
or game, then stop eating by 6:00pm. You will participate
in a 19 hour famine instead of a 30 hour one.
