The 30 Hour Famine is one of our BIGGEST and longest standing youth traditions at FPC for our MSYG and HSYG youth groups. If you wish to participate fully, start your fast after dinner on Friday…. and only drink water until Sunday lunch. If you are active in sports or simply cannot complete the fast, please be mindful of what you eat all weekend and come to our food drives to help others in NC and around the world. While you are fasting, we have some incredible experiences of service to the hungry to help you stay focused on this important issue!
Here was the itinerary for 2017:
