30 Hour Famine - April 26-27 - St. Luke’s, East Greenwich
Jesus asked: “How many loaves do you have?” One boy gave what he had . . . And Jesus multiplied it to feed 5,000. Today, the question still applies - What can we give? How can we help end the global hunger crisis? Our young people will be taking a very important step in the effort to feed people by participating in the “30 Hour Famine”. Won’t you please support their efforts by sponsoring a member of the Youth Group as they fast? Every $30 raised will feed one child for a month. Give what you are able, and please support and encourage our young people as they learn the power of putting their faith into action.
