Fasting for the Lenten Season (March 5 – April 18) I strongly encourage each member to join us as we fast, pray, and seek the Lord during the fasting period. Fasting is one of the most powerful of all the Christian disciplines. Through fasting and prayer, the Holy Spirit can transform your life.  The awesome power of God can be released in you as you fast, with the enabling of the Holy Spirit. If done properly, fasting will prove to be, not only a spiritual blessing, but a physical blessing as well. This is why I am encouraging each member to fast and to spend at least 30 minutes in prayer, meditation, and Bible study each day.
