Students 7th - 12th grade are invited to join the 2017 Act 2Day 4 Tomorrow @ Christ Lutheran Church Saturday, October 14th @ 12:30pm - Sunday, October 15th @ 10:00am.
 
Youth from local area congregations will join together to help fight hunger and poverty, in the world and our own community, by experiencing the true meaning of being hungry, even if it is just for 24 hours.
 
 

What is “Act 2Day 4 Tomorrow”?

Act 2Day 4 Tomorrow is an overnight event for youth that combines service and learning to engage them in the effort to help lessen poverty in our community and in the world. Participants are asked to fast for 24 hours and will sleep outside with limited shelter as a way to experience hunger and poverty, even if it is just for a very short amount of time.

 

 The name “Act 2Day 4 Tomorrow” serves as an invitation to respond to the gospel of Christ and reflect on how our actions can make a difference. We will use the verse taken from
Acts 2:42, “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers” to guide our activities, discussion and reflections during our 24 hours together. The students will conclude our event and fast during the 9am Worship Service at Christ Lutheran on Sunday, October 15th during Holy Communion.
 
We are asking that each student try to individually raise at least $50*. 100% of all donations will be divided between the ELCA World Hunger Campaign, Feed My Starving Children and the McLeod County Food Shelf.  Please ask your congregations to help support our participating youth with their donations of money or canned food items and by praying for them during their preparation for the event.

 

*If the student is not able to raise $50, we still welcome them to participate in the event.
 

All of the Act 2Day 4 Tomorrow events will be held at Christ Lutheran Church and First Congregational Churches in Glencoe, MN, except for the food packing activity which will take place at the Feed My Starving Children facility in Chanhassen, MN. The students will be transported in individual chaperone/parent vehicles.
