In about four weeks, the High School Youth Group will be doing a 30 Hour Famine. Starting on April 29, students and leaders will fast from noon on Friday until 6pm on Saturday. We hope to accomplish three things: to raise money for World Vision, to grow as a group in our relationship with God, and to grow in our understanding of the global issues that lead to poverty.

Please pray for the youth group during the next month as we prepare for the Famine. Every year, this event provides wonderful opportunities for personal growth. Please pray that God be glorified through everything we do and experience. Moreover, some students might ask you to sponsor them. All contributions go to World Vision, and will be well used to remedy global hunger and poverty, both spiritually and materially.

This event is also open to any middle school students who feel up for the challenge. Likewise, any teens who have not actively participated in the Youth Group are welcome to join us for this experience. Students who cannot fast because of health concerns can still participate in the famine without fasting. Please talk with Michael Jones if you need more information.
