Fast for the Hungry This practice consisted of 1. Skip one or more meals each week, 2. Set aside the meal
expenses saved, 3. Bring the savings to church and mark it with “FAST”, 4. 60% of this offering goes to Caritas,
and 40% goes to the UMC World Hunger Program. Note that fasting applies only to adults in good physical
health without special dietary requirements. The children collect on the 4th Sunday of the month. Thanks for
carrying on the tradition, which has been a big help to the hungry locally and throughout the world.
A Bit of History ---- for the New Year Does anyone remember Herring Ave. UMC, the church built in one day in
1911? It grew to be a thriving church with more than 400 in Sunday worship, but had to be closed after 92
years of faithful ministry in the beginning of 2003, 15 years ago. 15 members from Herring moved to Lake
Shore UMC and brought along the tradition of FAST (Fast For the Hungry) offering.
