Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) Holiday MobilePack

December 2, 2017, 3:00pm - December 2, 2017, 6:00pm

Bring the whole family (children age 6 and up with a parent) to help pack meals for hungry children around the world at the “Hope-Filled Holiday AZ Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) MobilePack Event” on Saturday, December 2, 3-5 pm. This is a great way to demonstrate God's love in action and make a real difference in fighting hunger in the world. Paradise Valley UMC has reserved a total of 130 spots, so there's room for everyone. If you haven't done this before, don't worry; it's a lot of fun, and they give you instructions. We even get to pack to music, and pray over the boxes before they're shipped. Participation is easy. Simply email Jim at jnbateman@aol.com and let him know you want to participate. You can register yourself, your spouse, friends and any other family members in one email. Just include first and last names for those over age 18 as well as email addresses and one contact number. For those under 18, please include the ages only. Children must be accompanied and work with adults to pack meals. There is an opportunity to donate at the event. The typical donation is $50/person. Thank you for offering hope with your two hands. Get ready to have fun while making an impact. And if you have a Change the World Day T-shirt, wear it, because you WILL be changing the world with PVUMC and FMSC!
