21 Days of Prayer & Fasting

21 Days of Prayer & Fasting

As part of our Impossible Things series, we are setting aside 21 days to pray and fast together as a church. If you sense that God has more for your life, this is a great place to start. Maybe you’re facing a health issue, caring for an aging parent, afraid of cutbacks at work, worried about your wayward child or trying to get your life together after a divorce. Whatever the situation, we believe God can bring hope and healing to you.  

Jan. 6–27

To help the journey, we are providing a daily prayer and fasting guidebook. This will be available both online (link below) and in print (available in services on Jan. 5/6). These devotions will act as your guidebook during the next 21-days. Take time each day to reflect on two things: 1. What is God saying? 2. What is God doing?

We believe God is going to do impossible things in our church during this time, and we want you to be part of it. Let’s make this next month a journey of breakthrough for our church, our family.

We’re kicking off 2019 in a big way! When’s the last time you asked God to do the impossible in your life? On Jan. 6/7, we’re beginning a four-part series that’s all about God showing up.

This January
Saturdays at 5 p.m.
Sundays at 9 & 11 a.m.

As part of this emphasis, we’re setting aside 21 days to pray and fast together as a church (Jan. 6–27). The month will culminate on Sunday evening, Jan. 27, with a prayer rally as we believe for miracles to happen! Join us as we make room in our hearts for God to do the impossible and believe for him to bring breakthroughs in our lives!

Fine Arts 2019 Auditions

  • Sunday, Feb. 10, 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Fine Arts Festival is a discipleship tool of the Assemblies of God Youth Ministries (AGYM) designed to help students (grade 6-12) discover, develop, and deploy their ministry gifts. For students interested in participating in this ministry, register to attend our Fine Arts Auditions.

Sunday, Feb. 10
2-6 p.m.
Choir Room

Whether you are a pro, or just beginning to cultivate your gift, anyone age 12-17 is welcome to be a part of Fine Arts. You will have the opportunity to be coached by a mix of staff members and adult volunteers who have had years of experience in cultivating their specific gift. These leaders want the chance to pour into you and see you grow in your gift!

Each student needs to prepare a presentation within their chosen division and present what they have to the Fine Arts leadership team. From there, we will learn each student's skill level, where they are in the presentation planning process, and determine how we can best coach the student and prepare them for the District Fine Arts Festival on April 6 in Decatur, IL.

Learn more at our Fine Arts Ministry Page!
