Student Serve: 30-Hour Famine
Student Serves are St. Luke's Student Ministries events to help be the hands and feet of Jesus reaching out to the community of Houston. Through these events, we strive to help students see the importance of going out into the community around them and reflecting Jesus in the way that they serve those who are in need.
For October's Student Serve we will be partnering with St. John of the Divine's youth program in participating in their annual 30-hour Famine! 30-Hour Famine is an opportunity for students to experience what world poverty is like through fasting. During the event, we will play games, serve the community, and have times of worship and teaching. It is going to be an awesome time diving deeper into the heart of service and the importance of fasting. The event begins at 6:00PM on Friday, October 18th and will be over on Saturday, October 19th at 6:00PM. We will be meeting at St. John of the Divine at 6:00PM on Friday.
The fast for this event begins on Friday, October 18th at 12:00PM. We will be breaking the fast at the end of the event by having a meal together at 6:00PM. (We ask that students start the fast after they eat lunch that day.)
Please register on our website so that we know the number of students who will be attending.
