21 Days of Prayer & Fasting

We know ‘the battle is won in prayer’ so what better way to start 2020?! At the beginning of every year, we come together as a church to align our focus on God through prayer and fasting.

Please join us as we start 21 DAYS OF PRAYER from January 5-25, where we will be praying collectively as a church community for a specific topic each day. Follow us on Facebook or Instagram for our daily prayer focus & encouragement.

For more information, you can download our guide on prayer and fasting HERE.

We’re also inviting everyone to read through the Gospel of John with us — By reading 1 chapter each day beginning on January 5, we’ll be able to read the entire book throughout our 21 Days of Prayer & Fasting.
