30 Hour Famine

Friday, April 07, 2017, 6:00 PM - Saturday, April 08, 2017, 6:00 PM

Over the past eight years the students of St. John the Divine have taken part in World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine. They have annually taken 30 hours over one weekend and dedicated those hours to raising funds and awareness that provides food for the hungry, water for the thirsty, shelter for orphans, and clothes for the naked.

But what is Famine and why do we do it? Famine is a movement that glorifies and honors God by providing for his children. Our students are changing lives for God in Christ by saving lives for God in Christ.

Our students have served faithfully for seven years, effectively saving and sustaining the lives of over 275 children during that time. And the most remarkable thing is this: just $35 provides for the needs of one child for one month. People are shocked to know that it could be that simple. As simple as missing one round of golf, skipping one meal out, or making coffee at home for one week versus hitting the drive through around the corner.

Will you join us in saving lives and fighting hunger this year? All students in grades 7-12 are welcome to participate.
