    Supporting 2024 Feed My Starving Children Mobile Pack

    One Minute Per Meal 
    “For nothing is impossible with God."  Luke 1:37

    Every year millions of children die from preventable causes such as pneumonia, diarrhea, malaria, and under-nutrition. Today, hunger still causes nearly half of deaths in children under 5 years old. This is heartbreaking, but you can make a difference. Through a Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) MobilePack™ event at Cross Winds UMC on April 19-20th, 2024, our community is responding to the cries of those in need by producing over 100,000 nutritious meals for kids around the world. 

    Join Our Prayer Challenge! 

    Our goal is to pray one minute for EVERY meal that we will be packing. That means we need 100,000 minutes for 100,000 meals. Consider praying for one meal or many as we reach our goal. We’ll have sample prayers, Bible verses, and words of encouragement to cheer you on in prayer. Starting in January, we’ll have resources ready for you to sign up and join the team. Until then, save the date for these upcoming events.  

    For additional questions, contact Amber Lahtinen (Director of Children’s Ministries) or Pastor Stina Koppes.
