30 Hour Famine This Weekend!

 The 30 Hour Famine sponsored by World Vision begins this weekend! Youth from our church and their friends will be fasting for 30 hours to raise money to wipe out hunger around the world.  Please Donate Today!

Follow tweets from fasting youth from all around the world at #30HourFamine or #30HF and our own youth at #MerrimacportUMC.

We would also invite you to PRAY for the youth throughout the weekend. AND, we invite adults to fast during this time as well … either for the whole 30 hours or even just one meal. Allow each pang of hunger to remind you to pray for the youth, and for children around the world for whom “going without” is not a choice.

Regular fasting is a wonderful way to grow closer to God too. For more information About Fasting go to this link which is an excerpt from Celebration of Discipline by Richard Foster. It contains information on how to fast SAFELY and EFFECTIVELY.
