Bringing Help and Healing to World Hunger
“Because, hey, that’s what God wants us to do!”
ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ - Central Baptist Church, Atlantic Highlands, NJ, once again will participate in World Vision's 30 Hour Famine, a voluntary fast for youth to raise money for the world’s hungry. The 30 Hour Famine gives 13-18 year olds a chance to change the world — by going hungry to help hungry kids.
How does the Famine work?
Before the Famine starts, participants sign up and collect sponsors. On Famine Weekend, each participant takes part in a mini-course in global hunger by going 30 hours without food. The event includes youth-oriented activities to help make the Famine event a truly life-changing experience. Activities will commence Saturday, April 9th at 8 AM and conclude at the church Sunday, April 10th, 2011 at 3 PM.
When does the Famine Start?
On Saturday April 9th, 2011, participants will have early breakfast together, so everyone will start out with a good meal! Then, at 9:00 AM, the Famine will begin.
What will participants do during the Famine?
Central Baptist Church has organized two community service projects. The Atlantic Highlands First Aid Squad has been kind enough to give a course on first aid basics. In addition, participants will paint, watch movies, and possibly play instruments to ‘jam’ a bit. On Sunday, many participants will perform in the “Ringing Revolution” youth chimes orchestra.
In addition to the activities above, participants will help the Area Association of Community Churches Food Pantry at United Methodist Church of Atlantic Highlands, which currently is in dire need of donations. Famine participants will help collect contributions for needy local families. Don’t be surprised if you hear a knock at the door!
