30 Hour Famine – March 2nd-3rd Yes!! Back by popular demand, we will be attempting another 30 Hour Famine type event! Our goal will be to educate ourselves concerning the issue of Hunger in our country and around the world. We will have a ton of fellowship, participate in the Rise Against Hunger Event at Pitts School, watch a couple movies, and play some games. All this plus going without food for about 30 hours! We are asking Youth who participate to raise $50 in donations from family and friends that we will donate to the Rise Against Hunger project. We will conclude our event with a meal on Saturday evening. You must register for this event. Registration will be sent out by Feb. 1, 2018. Chaperones Needed!!
