All are invited to participate in our annual fast leading up to Easter. Our church wide fast began last Monday, February 23d and will continue for 40 days until Good Friday, April 3d.

We will break the forty day fast with a fellowship dinner on Good Friday evening, April 3d at the Fung Residence. You may choose to fast from whatever God is putting on your heart...Daniel fast; financial fast; meat; juice; grains; technology; TV or just fasting from being too busy!
