Walking the line between nerd and cool.

Be Seen, Be Heard, Be Hungry

That’s the theme for the 30 Hour Famine this year.  We’re excited to be hosting the entire famine event this year, including the closing worship and dinner.  I’m also excited about some big developments for the 2008 Famine:

  • The Jesus Painter and Marc Scibilia will be here on Friday evening.  It’s open to the community and costs $6/ticket ahead of time, $8 at the door.  Call 835.2220 for tickets or visit the church office or Life Resources.
  • There are currently six churches participating with three more on the fence.  We had four churches last year.
  • There are almost 60 participants signed up in total, up from about 30 last year.
  • First Trinity has 12 confirmed youth, up from 3 in 2006 and 5 in 2007.  I expect a few more to sign up before the deadline on February 3 as well.
  • We’re offering a 30 day “continuing the famine” devotional booklet to all participants.  We’re trying to develop the habit of feeding on the Word regularly as part of the famine.

I’m praying God will use the Famine in big ways this year!

    Jason, I love the “continuing the famine” devo book idea. Can’t wait to see how kids respond to it. Can I have a copy?

    I was wondering,
    When I was in middle school my youth group did the Be seen, be heard, be hungry 2008 30 hour famine and I loved it! Now I lead a bible study of my own and I thought it would be really cool to go back and do it with the girls. Is there a way that I can still got the same thing even though it is not 2008?,lol

    • @Michaela: Your best bet for official famine resource from old themes would be to contact World Vision directly. Unless you did the famine here and are talking about something we did, in which case I can look for the resource.
