Our Why

The Bible talks about the importance of fasting a lot, with Jesus specifically addressing it in Matthew 6. Jesus didn’t just say, “If you fast,” or “if you pray.” He actually led with, “when you fast,” and “when you pray,” which explains to us that prayer and fasting isn’t just an option, or just something reserved for the elite, but it’s a practice for all of us and it’s designed to maximize the Spirit of God in our lives.

Fasting Details

From January 1 through January 21, we’re doing a churchwide fast with an extra emphasis on our prayer and devotional times. We’re encouraging everyone to take ONE STEP CLOSER this season.

First Day:
Monday, January 1
Last Day:
Sunday, January 21

We invite you fast something uniquely sacrificial to you. We recommend the Daniel Fast (no meat, no bread, and no dessert), but we challenge you to go deeper by exploring the other fasting types in our digital or printed guide.

Prayer Services

Our Prayer Services are going deeper than ever before! Join us at 7pm on Wednesday and Friday nights in the Main Sanctuary throughout the fast.

Midweek Prayer Services | January 3, 10, 17
We’re switching up our typical Wednesday night services at the Curry Ford Campus by leading the congregation in directional prayer nights. Both our Michigan St. and Red Bug Lake Campuses will be meeting at their campuses as well, as they kick off their “Winter Wednesday Nights” series with prayer.

Friday Night Prayer | January 5 & 19
We kick off week 1 in the Main Sanctuary with a combined prayer night for both youth and adults. (On January 12, Ministry Team Conference will kick of with prayer for attendees in the Mainstream Youth Center).
