Let The Fast Begin!

God is directing me to lead our church in another fast. We started this year with a 21 day fast and have seen God do incredible things! 54 People have made decisions to follow Jesus so far this year & the best is yet to come! I am calling our church to a special fast 7 day fast beginning today until Easter Sunday. Here are a few reasons that I am calling this fast:

1. Chase the Lion-
We are believing God as a church this year to raise $100,000 above our normal tithes & offerings. $50,000 of the finances will go towards our current missionaries and to plant more churches toward our 25 church plants in 5 years. $50,000 will go to our home mission to pay for the recent upgrades to our auditorium & for future work in our bathrooms/parking lot & video needs.

2. Sickness- There have been many demonic attacks upon people in our church. Here are a few that we will pray about specifically.
*Baby Gabriella- Mike & LeeAnn Goodson’s newborn daughter needed open heart surgery & is battling for her life. For updates, click here
*The Guinta’s- Jon & Lauren recently discovered that their unborn 3rd child (Taylor) has been diagnosed with the same terminal disease that their second child (Alexis) is suffering from. For updates, click here
*Brother Richard- Richard has a possible re-occurrence of cancer. The doctor has found a growth that is still yet to be identified. In each of these cases, we are believing for a supernatural miracle! If you have a need, fast with us as we believe for a breakthrough!

3. Souls- We have seen 54 people, young & old, make decisions so far this year. I’m believing that we will all be used by God and will see 800 people fill the house this Easter! I am asking God for 50 first-time decisions this Easter. Please prepare to join with me in prayer & fasting as we believe for a spiritual breakthrough in the life of our church!

Make sure to come early & bring a friend for the biggest day of the year! Get ready for your breakthrough & have a great Monday! -Sam
