please come on Friday to check-in your student. If we leave church campus, only
approved drivers will drive your student safely.
YOUR PART: Start the
FAST on Friday April 24th at 7:00am (Please eat breakfast before
7:00am) During the FAST, drink LOTS of water.
The average person can do it, no problem. Most people can go
without food for 30 hours without any side effects. Exceptions include, but are
not limited to:
• Children younger than 12
and the elderly
• Pregnant or nursing women
• People with specific
medical conditions or eating disorders
If students or parents have any concerns, have them check with a
doctor before participating.
Important things to know for fasting:
lots. Lower calorie intake means lower energy levels, so encourage teens to get
a decent amount of sleep before and during Famine weekend.
more. Make sure that plenty of juice and water are on hand during your event to
ensure proper hydration. Be tummy-friendly by avoiding acidic juices like OJ.
for gut-friendly foods after the fast. Easy-to-digest foods like rice, pasta,
and non-acidic fruits are best. The
church will provide something on Saturday to eat.
When you fast, you’re in good company In the Bible, people fasted
for a lot of different reasons. Some did it to get right with God (Nehemiah
9:1). Some fasted as an act of worship (Acts 13:2) or to discern the Lord’s
will (2 Chronicles 20:3). And Jesus Himself fasted to get ready for His public
ministry (Matthew 4:2). “My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who
sent me . . .” —John 4:34 (NIV)

helps students bond in a big way
a big challenge like the Famine breaks down walls and unites students. (Nothing
melts cliques like having something in common — like feeling a gaping hole in
your stomach for 30 hours!)
FAST: Creative fasting alternatives
Go without TV, the Internet, cellphones, video games, movies, etc. for 30 hours
serving: Eat a single serving of rice or beans from a Dixie cup to get a
perspective on what “portion control” means to those in extreme poverty.
“ONE”: What’s that one awesome food you just can’t live without? Chocolate?
Chips? Fast food? Stop eating that one food for a week.
a meal or two rather than going the full 30 hours. Again, put the money you
would’ve spent toward your fundraising goal.
