I hope you are all well:) Here is information you need to know! There are a lot of details, below, that are important for you to read.
1. 30Hour Famine has been postponed! The new date is Sun and Mon, 6/26-27! We will be camping out at the church! We will arrive at church at 12:30pm, build our “homes” and experience the challenges that a child in extreme poverty live with! On Mon, we will break our juice fast at 6:30pm. This is a team building event for caravan as well as raising funds for World Vision.
2. So- we will be giving our focus to Crop Walk on 4/24! We will be the hands and feet of Jesus by walking:) Plan to meet at Burlingame Hall at 12pm. We will walk until 2pm.
3. Buy A Mile starts in 2 weeks! This is a fundraiser for caravan!! We need to raise $3,500. We will be selling raffle tickets in between services! $20 enters a person in a raffle! We will pull 2 tickets- one for each service- on 5/15! The winners will choose a dinner made and served by youth or a 4 hour “spring cleaning” done by the youth. We will be putting together a list of jobs that the youth will be able to do and the winner will be able to check off. I will need youth to be available for ticket selling 4/24, 5/1 and 5/8, drawing on 5/15 (ea service) and working the dinner or cleaning!
SERVE THE HUNGRY.
DO THE FAMINE.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of students in the U.S. and around the world unite to do the Famine. Join them, and your group will learn about hunger, raise funds to help the hungry, and then go hungry yourselves for 30 hours. Through the Famine, teens grow closer to Christ and each other — all while helping to save the lives of hungry kids.
Learn more about World Vision’s work at http://worldvision.org.
There will be events that come up during the year. These are our annual events.
