OCTOBER 13 – 16, 7-9PM

Four Nights. One Focus.

Chasing God: This New Life

Chasing God is a series of evenings set aside for the sole purpose of drawing near to God. Through music and worship, teaching from some great speakers, prayer and enough flexibility to respond to God in the moment, we hope that significant life change will happen!

Three-day Community Fast

Starts on Sunday, October 10 at 7pm

We are inviting our church body to come together to fast and pray for Chasing God because we believe God will honor and bless the sacrifice. The invitation is for each of us to take part in a fast from all food for three days leading into Chasing God. Try asking God what the fast should look like specifically for you.

One of the benefits of a church-wide fast is that you are not alone! We want each person to feel supported while fasting so they can experience all God may have for them.

If you are planning on joining the three-day fast we would love know!

I’M PLANNING TO FAST

During Chasing God, we know that God can move in mighty ways! If we seek more of Him, He wants to give Himself to us. “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13

There are many examples in the Bible of God calling His people to fast and pray together, often toward a specific end. This can be seen throughout Scripture (Esther 4:16, Nehemiah 9:1, Ezra 8:21-23). In the book of Acts, the church came together to fast and pray for those leading the churches: “Paul and Barnabas appointed elders for them in each church and, with prayer and fasting, committed them to the Lord, in whom they had put their trust.” Acts 14:23

If you choose to fast for more than a day, typically the 2nd and 3rd days of any fast are the most difficult. It is normal to experience: dry mouth (drink water or chew gum), lightheadedness (drink some juice), hunger pangs (if severe, please consult a doctor), going to the restroom a lot (you are likely drinking a lot more water than usual), and changes to your sleeping pattern.

  • Sunday, 7pm (Oct. 10)
