Our church is participating in World Renew’s yearly World Hunger Campaign. This year, Peter Fish turns 20! Wow!
The theme is “Fish for Change.” You can learn more about the work that will be done around the world through the funds raised by watching this video:
Here’s a link to a family devotional you can use over the next two weeks.
To donate directly and online, go here, or use the Feed Your Fish App.
Last but not least, use the #PeterFishTravels to show where your Peter Fish is going!
Each year, our church participates in World Renew’s World Hunger Campaign.
Families and individuals use a devotional that shares stories from around the world and guide us in putting our loose/spare change into an orange plastic fish (or donated via an app on your android or iOS device). These monies are used in over 3000 communities to alleviate hunger in a myriad of ways. To learn a few of the ways, watch this video:
There is also an adult devotional that doesn’t have instructions for filling up the peter fish.
We finished up our World Hunger campaign this week, and as promised here are number of ideas to help you discern how God might be inviting you to get involved. Just because we brought our Peter Fish back to church doesn’t mean God’s invitation ends!
From the Canadian Foodgrains Bank:
“How Can Families with Young Children Respond to Hunger in East Africa?” continues the stories we heard on Sunday about using a ration meal to save money so that you can share it with those in need.
There’s also their Educational Resources page for groups, classes and families.
From World Renew:Check out Resources for All for lots of ideas perfect for church settings.
Especially take some time to read the fall newsletter from World Renew, Through the Dust.
And consider using the Gift Catalog this winter. On Sunday at CCC, kids ages 3 – grade 7 joined in the giving from the Catalog with money from the Deacons: ages 3-5 bought a chimney, grades k-1 and 2-3 each bought a beehive, and grades 4-7 are waiting to make their purchase so that they can bring some of their own money in to contribute.
And a little more close to home, consider taking one of these 10 Love Challenges.
This post is the final in a series of posts that were part of Christ Community Church’s World Hunger Campaign in conjunction with World Renew. It shares resources and opportunities for individuals and families to give and share love.
