June Mission: RISE AGAINST HUNGER
Some of you will remember going to the Sulpher Springs Camp Meeting last year to participate in Stop Hunger Now (now Rise Against Hunger) where we packed 10,152 meals in 2 hours. Now it’s our turn to do this as a church. In partnership with Cokesbury UMC, we are going to pack 10,152 meals on Saturday, August 19. We will be packing at what used to be Boones Creek UMC and is now the District Office and is where Cokesbury UMC meets. The mission of Rise Against Hunger is to end hunger in our lifetime by providing food and life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable and creating a global commitment to mobilize the necessary resources. We can help do this by providing 10,152 meals at 29 cents a meal. Yes, you heard that right — each meal only costs 29 cents! So . . . if we aren’t packing meals until August, why are we hearing about this now? Because now we have to raise the money for these meals. Partnering with Cokesbury UMC, they will raise $1,000 of the $3,200 we need (this includes the cost of the meals and transportation) and we will raise the remaining $2,200. Can you imagine a meal that only costs 29 cents? That means if you give $29 to this ministry you will feed 100 people – that’s less than it costs to go out to eat for just one meal! Please give generously to this mission and help us Rise Up Against Hunger NOW!
