Youth 30 Hour FamineWe’re getting ready for Nov. 17-18! World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine is a worldwide movement of students who are serious about loving God and fighting hunger – all on an empty stomach. For 30 hours, participants get a taste of hunger by not eating, something more than a billion people around the world experience every day. Through various planned activities throughout the weekend, students are changed in amazing ways as they learn and help others. Would you stand with us by praying and/or donating to help us fight hunger? Donations can be made online by going to our youth events page on or checks can be made out to World Vision and placed in the offering box on the wall by the office.
