CHURCH FAMILY FAST
September 30, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - October 9, 2019 @ 6:00 pm
It is time to prepare our hearts, minds and spirits for the Church Family Fast beginning in two weeks at 6 PM on Monday, September 30th and ends at 6 PM on October 9th. Fasting involves turning away from foods for our spirit to concentrate on God in worship, service, and praise. The fast will include eating one meal a day after 6 PM.
WHAT IS A FAST?
The Hebrew word for fasting means “to cover the mouth.” The Greek word for fasting means “not to eat.” Simply put, fasting means to abstain from food. Fasting involves turning away from foods that the body craves in order for our spirit to concentrate on God in worship, service, and praise. Fasting has been a part of Christianity through the ages. It is a form of spiritual and scriptural sacrifice. Fasting does not change or impress God. Fasting changes us. Through fasting, Christians are empowered to discipline their daily relationship with the Lord.
