As we enter 2023, we as a church family want to start the year with our whole lives empowered by the Holy Spirit and centered on Jesus.
I invite you to begin by participating in our week of Prayer and Fasting from January 2nd to 8th. This is a week we are setting aside to ask the Lord to search our hearts, and seek His will for our families, our church family, and us as individuals.
If you are new to fasting, or even prayer, we welcome you to join us. Further teaching can be found by clicking the link below.
We look forward in eager anticipation for all God has in store for us this year.
Monday, January 2 to Saturday, January 7, 2023
The church will be open every evening during this week from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm for a time of quiet, reflective prayer. Prayer will be held in the sanctuary. You are welcome to come and go anytime during this time.
WAYS TO USE THIS PRAYER TIME
- Come and sit quietly for personal and reflective prayer
- Bring your family and pray with each other
- Have a pastor pray over you (& your family)
Join us as we fast from January 2nd to 8th. We will be following a typical fasting model and will fast all food during breakfast and lunch (water only), and eat dinner each evening. During the times you would normally be eating breakfast and lunch, we invite you to spend the time in prayer and reading Scripture.
We need to teach our children that spiritual disciplines are ways to be with Jesus and make room for the Holy Spirit to work in our hearts. Consider having your kids fast sugar/sweets this week to introduce them to fasting. Include a daily time of prayer as a family.
