40 DAYS OF PRAYER

EVENTS


Early Sunday Morning Prayer 
6:30am 
Meet in the Auditorium
You are invited to join us for a time of early morning prayer. We gather to seek the face of the Lord for our church as a whole, and for the Lord to move hearts throughout the morning ahead. This focused time of prayer will take place each Sunday morning during our 40 Days of Prayer Series for approximately 45 minutes to an hour. Please know that there will be no childcare available during this time.


Fasting Fridays
Fasting is one of the things we recently discussed as part of our 40 Days of Prayer series and have encouraged everyone to participate in fasting each Friday. Remember that there are different types of fasting, from food, media, shopping to social media or TV. You can fast from something for an entire day or maybe just a select period of time during the day. You can learn a little more from the September 30th message or by downloading our Fasting Brochure
