During the Famine, our 8th-12th graders will be giving up their phones and internet access. They are unplugging to raise money for kids around the globe who are born into extreme poverty. During the famine, they will do activities and service projects to raise awareness about world hunger. This event is March 9th- 10th. Its starts on Friday at 5:30 PM and ends on Saturday at 8:00 PM.
Students (and even adults) can "Unplug for a Hunger-Free World" even if they have other things going on this weekend. Sign up to get a shirt, and let Joel know which parts of the weekend program you will be able to join us for. Or set your phone aside on friday night, and do a technology fast at home until Sunday morning.
There will be a Famine Dinner for all ages on Saturday, March 10th at 7:00 PM at Living Hope. Donations from this will help feed the hungry, and the students will teach the congregation about their experience.
