30-Hour Famine

Starting 6 am Friday morning, January 19, until 1 pm on Saturday, January 20, we invite you to participate in our 30-Hour Famine. This does not mean you won’t be able to eat for 30 hours, you can easily choose to fast from other daily things like social media, screen time, etc… We will meet at the church at 7 pm for worship, and then come back at 8 am on Saturday to start doing some mission work around the church and our community. At 12 pm we will end our famine and have a big group lunch! We encourage you to join us for this amazing experience.

We would love for you to join us during Winter Break.
