We are facing challenging times as individuals and as a church like never before. Fears and concerns are not just for those in our community, or our country, but around the world. The scripture clearly tells us that in difficult times we should turn to God in Prayer.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Philippians 4:6

Daily Prayer:

At noon join us on Facebook or Instagram for Community@Noon. Each day (Monday–Saturday), a different staff member will lead us through a devotion and take prayer requests. We will conclude that time in prayer exactly at 12:15 pm. We are inviting the congregation to stop and pray every day at 12:15, remembering Hebrews 12:15

See to it that no one misses the Grace of God.
Hebrews 12:15

Fasting:

Another opportunity to draw closer to God is by fasting during the 21 days. Biblical fasting is voluntarily giving up something that is part of your daily routine in order to draw closer to God. You REPLACE the time you would have spent on what you’re fasting from with God. All through Scripture, God’s people fasted and prayed when they wanted to draw near to God, hear from Him, and seek answers to prayers. Fasting has always been most closely associated with food. Some will choose to give up food entirely for a certain period of time. Some may choose just one meal per day, not going out to eat at all, or a single food item. Maybe coffee is your morning routine and for 21 days you choose to give that up. You can fast from anything that is part of your daily routine—TV, social media, games, etc. What’s important is that it’s something that will remind you multiple times each day to spend time with God. You don’t just eliminate something, you replace it with Bible reading and prayer.
