The PF Youth Group (Pilgrim Fellowship Youth Group) in Simsbury, CT, is part of the First Church of Christ, United Church of Christ, in Simsbury, CT.

Our group will be fasting for 30 hours, from 7am on March 7th through 1pm on March 8th.

The 1-2-3’s of Why We Are Doing This…

1) To raise funds for One Great Hour of Sharing: One Great Hour of Sharing is the mission offering of the United Church of Christ that goes to help communities devastated by disaster, hunger, violence, insufficient health care, and lack of education. When a tornado ripped through Illinois in November 2013, and houses were twisted on their foundations, a percentage of the One Great Hour of Sharing offering was given to a local church so they could organize and reach out to the most vulnerable with meals. Right now in Syria, as Syrian refugees populate camps established in near-by nations, the One Great Hour of Sharing offering is providing them with refuge, hospitality and stability. To support One Great Hour of Sharing and to encourage our youth group's involvement with this effort, go to the page below, choose any name and cliick on it, and then make a donation.http://www.ucc.org/oghs/resources/frequently-asked-questions.html

2) To grow in empathy for those who are hungry: The 30-Hour Fast will serve as a teachable moment for our youth. Through the fast, our youth will get a “taste” of what it’s like to be hungry, and as a result, grow in the understanding of what it might be like to deal with the reality of hunger each and every day. Through fasting and the activities and discussions we have planned during the fast, our youth will come to appreciate the fact that they have been blessed with constant access to food, and realize that in a world where some have so much, it is unacceptable that anyone should suffer hunger.

3) As a spiritual exercise, a way to build up spiritual muscle. For your child, the fast will provide an intentional pause from the rhythm of their everyday lives. It will be an opportunity for your child to pay attention to the presence of God in their lives, so that they can grow in awareness of God’s compassion and love.

Thank you for your prayerful and/or financial support.

    Great job, guys! We've gone over the $1,000 mark! However, there's much work to be done! One Great Hour of Sharing helps a lot of people who are struggling around the world, the more we raise the more we help. And if we hit 5,000, Bob's stache and Evan's beard are goner's!
