April 8-9 Ignite NYI will be participating in the FED UP FAMINE. The theme is “Fed Up with Hunger.” We will be joined by other youth groups in our Fellowship Hall as we fast from food for 30 HOURS. During this time of fellowship, prayer, and reflection, we will be learn about:
-World hunger realities
-Local hunger realities
-What can be done about it?
-The spiritual nature of fasting and service
In the weeks leading up to the event, students will be seeking sponsors to donate to the cause. Donations will go to the NAZARENE COMPASSIONATE MINISTRIES (NCM) Food Security program. Through this program, NCM partners with local churches around the world to provide long-term agricultural programs such as small-scale farming, animal husbandry, and fish farms, as well as nutrition education, to improve health and provide a source of income for families and individuals.
