Fed Up With Hunger Sunday
Frequently Asked Questions
What Are We Doing?
We are harnessing all our Sunday morning people and energy to prepare and package over 150,000 Meals Ready To Eat (MREs).
Where Is All This Food Going To End Up?
After we prepare and package the meals, Stop Hunger Now will ship them to famine-stricken regions of Uganda, a country in East Africa. Stop Hunger Now (www.stophungernow.org) is a faith-based hunger relief agency out of Raleigh.
Why Aren’t We Having Church?
We ARE having church. We are worshipping by feeding. Instead of hearing a sermon, we are being the sermon. Pity watches what compassion does.
Will We Have An Offering Sunday?
Yes. Please look for greeters with giving baskets as on a usual Sunday. The first $43,000 of today’s offering goes to this project to pay for the food products and the shipping.
What About Helping Close To Home?
We will battle Charlotte-area hunger today with a non-perishable food collection. We have receptacles throughout the campus.
What About My Kids?
Children & youth 6th grade and up will be your co-laborers in the Worship Center this morning. For space and safety sake, we ask that parents take pre-schoolers through 5th graders to their normal Sunday morning space in the K-Zone where there will be age specific service projects. Our nursery area will function as normal.
How Does This Fit In With Inviting All People Into A Living Relationship With Jesus Christ?
Inviting All People is our big “what.” Our strategic “how” involves LifeGroups, Serve Teams, Worship Gatherings, and Radical Impact Projects. Sunday is a Radical Impact Project.
