Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger
 

PENNY WARS

Jarofpenniestippedoverthumb3811984

Before we can advocate for the poor and hungry, we need to educate.  Raising awareness in youth will create a whole new generation of activist.  The July/August edition of Hunger Sunday highlights the Munsey Memorial United Methodist Church in Johnson City, Tennessee where the middle school and high school group engaged in Penny Wars and raised over $400 for Bread for the World.  The youth also led two worship services around the theme of “Be the Change.” 

Bread for the World Sunday is coming up in October.  It is a time when many churches around the nation will give THANKS for God’s gift of abundant food, REFLECT on our responsibilities in a time of growing hunger, PRAY for those who are hungry, and RENEW our commitment to share abundance with others.  As Munsey Memorial has shown, there are many creative ways to involve our youth in hunger awareness activities and advocacy.
