Hello church family!
We’re excited to remind you that we are starting our first church-wide time of fasting this Monday (tomorrow!). We want to encourage you to jump in as God will lead you.
I once heard someone say that fasting loosens the soul’s grip on the flesh and enlarges their spirit to receive clearer revelation. Another way to to say that is the things that tend to distract us are silenced which enables us to experience God’s revelations in a much clearer way.
We have a great resource that you will find here that will be especially helpful if you choose to fast. I want to encourage you to ask God what would He have you fast from and what would He have you fast for. He may have you fast from solid food, meats & sweets (only eat fruit and vegetables), media, social media, or anything else that may be a common distractor. Regarding what to fast for, you may desire personal breakthrough in your own life, your relationship with God, or for challenging circumstances, or to just ask God to renew a promise that He has spoken over your life.
Regardless if you choose to fast from anything or for something, we see this as a great opportunity to grow closer to God and to each other through this shared experience.
We will be meeting for prayer over the next few days at the following times at the church offices*:
Monday: 7-7:30am, 12-12:30pm, 5-5:30
Tuesday: 7-7:30am, 12-12:30pm, 5-5:30pm
Wednesday: 7-7:30am, 12-12:30pm, Prayer and worship night 7-9pm location TBD
We are believing that these times of prayer will stir our faith as the Body of Christ and draw us together in unity. We hope you can join us!
Grace & Peace,
*The church offices are located at Perkins & Acadian in the Acadian Perkins Plaza. The entrance door is between the AT&T store and Burgersmith. Go up the stairs and we will be in the room on your left.
