It's that time of the year again when we partner together as a church to pray and fast, asking God to do only what He can.  We call it PRAY FIRST!  That is the posture we long to have in all areas of life.  We believe that everything should start with prayer which is why we kick off every year with 21 days of prayer and fasting. This year, our 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting will be from January 8 -28, 2024.  We will be resourcing you with all kinds of tools to make your time of prayer and fasting practical and life-changing.
In the meantime, you can sign up for our daily devotionals that will show up in your email box each morning during the 21 days.  We will update you with more information in the New Year.

I look forward to kicking off 2024 with you as we seek God's will and leading for our lives and church.

Pastor Shawn.

What kind of fasts are you going to do this month?

Food Fast(s)

Whether it be all food or certain kinds of food, food fasts are a good place to start!

Media fasts include social media, TV, video games, and all other kinds of electronics!


There are many other kinds of fasts that you can do throughout these next few weeks!

Here are multiple opportunities to gather for prayer in various contexts throughout the month!

prayer summit

This will be our first Prayer Summit of 2024 and will signal the conclusion of our 21 days of prayer and fasting. We encourage everyone to join us for an evening of worship, celebration, prayer, and communion.

Sunday, January 28 – 6-7:30 – in the Auditorium

pray first weekly gatherings

Join us for a weekly prayer gathering during our 21 Days of Prayer and fasting where we will learn some practical ways to pray and lift our church and community up before God. Our prayer gatherings will run for three weeks (please note that each week is on a different night. We have planned it this way to give Life Groups the opportunity to join for these times of prayer as well as parents to join during the scheduled youth nights). Everyone is welcome.

Thursday, January 11 in the Chapel (7-8:30).
Tuesday, January 16 in 2-K space – (7-8:30)
Wednesday, January 24 in 2-K space (7-8:30)

corporate three-day fast

The CORPORATE THREE-DAY FAST is a separate fast from what we do all month. We encourage you to fast as the Lord leads you throughout the 21 Days.  You may give up food, social media, or a meal throughout the day to focus on prayer.  
Use the time you typically spend eating, watching TV, scrolling on your phone, etc., to intentionally pray for the things God has laid on your heart.  
Then, on January 23, 24, and 25, we want to all fast together as a congregation and pray towards a common goal. We will announce and send out a focused prayer sheet a few days before for you to pray through.
