This year’s famine mission was fully youth-designed and led. These teens raised money for reducing world hunger, learned about the complex issues of poverty and hunger around the world, and served in mission in the church. The youth slept at the church Friday and Saturday nights, breaking their fast with Holy Communion during worship on Sunday morning.
The youth fully designed and led worship Sunday while Pastor Gwyneth washed the youth’s feet as part of Holy Communion. The youth had their own loaf of bread, and received Communion first. Then these youth served the congregation.What an inspiring time, and we look forward to sharing the total mission money raised to end world hunger! Your church family is so proud of you!
So far the youth have raised $1,846.95 and there’s still more coming in!
