Feed My Starving Children

Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a non-profit Christian organization committed to feeding God’s children hungry in body & spirit. The approach is simple: children & adults hand-pack meals specifically formulated for malnourished children, & then ship these meals to nearly 70 countries around the world, where meals are then distributed thru partner ministries in those areas.Our goal in January is to prepare and pack 350,000 meals for distribution by FMSC. The event will consist of Ten (10) two-hour shifts with approximately 35,000 meals prepared & packed per shift. Each meal costs 22 cents to pack & send, so we will need $77,000 to fund this event.

Sign ups for the event are live now! We invite you to join us for a shift!

Tim Hawkins Live

Since giving up his job as a grocery truck driver in 2002, Tim Hawkins has been forging the magical blend between two comedic ideals: A genuinely funny comedy show that caters to the entire family. Is it realistic? Hawkins believes so. With over 300 million views on YouTube, 110 sold out show dates every year, 125K YouTube subscribers, and a motley crew of 400K+ Facebook fans, Tim has started a gut-busting grassroots revolution of multi-generational proportions.

What sets him apart? Some would say it is his equally gifted and twisted approach to the medium. His stand-up material is vigorous, well-timed, and honed to perfection. And his music? It stands on its own. However, the connection he makes with his fans goes deeper than that: “If you can’t laugh at yourself, laugh at other people.” It is this ability to show the brokenness of our human nature and simultaneously marvel in its hilarity which makes Tim such a unique artist.
