40 Days of Fasting: began last Monday

Easter is coming...and that means it is time for our annual 40 day pre-Easter FAST that began last MONDAY, Feb. 19th. This is a wonderful opportunity to give God an area of your life and get closer to Him. You can fast by letting go of something - food, diet, social media, anger, etc. or you can fast by adding something NEW to your life that brings you closer to God. Many of you have signed up at church already.  We invite you to put your name down on the list as a DECISION to seek God together.
