A Light in the Attic Youth Group
At the beginning of the month the Youth Groupparticipated in the Souper Bowl Sunday event and raisedmoney and canned food items for the Woodford County Food Pantry. We raised $327! Then, for the rest of themonth we learned about, talked about and participated inactivities focusing on World Hunger to prepare for the30 hour Famine. We ended the month by participating in the 30 hourfamine. Before and during the famine, we raised $1000for World Vision. We learned about how people inpoverty feel by taking on new identities and disabilitiesfor the whole event. We had a midnight candleceremony with 300 candles being blown out every few seconds to represent one child’s life lost every 3 secondsto hunger. The second day we collected food items forthe Woodford County Food Pantry and then we played abarter and trade game with Pisgah members where weshowed up at their homes with an item and asked themto trade us for something bigger and better. We endedup with a TV, cabinets, games, movies and a GeorgeForman grill as well as many other items. We broke ourfast with a quiet communion service up in the attic ledby Pastor Jon and served by Elders Jennifer Chandlerand Don Schmidt. We then ended the famine with aprogressive feast at the homes of Bobbi and DaveSweeny, Dottie and Don Schmidt and Lisa and Joe Johnson. Thanks to all of you for the meal. It was wonderful!!
