Night of Praise happens once a year. It kicks off our 40 days of Prayer and Fasting, and its a pretty special night. This year's Night of Praise is on March 10 at 6 p.m. This is where we will make our fasting commitments if you are choosing to do so. Either way anyone is welcome.
Fasting is a spiritual discipline encouraged by Jesus himself. Our community chooses to fast for the 40 days before Easter, much like the old church did. We do this as a way to grow closer to Jesus. When you are fasting, the idea is to give up something you will miss. Then, when you have a desire for that thing, instead of indulging you pray, read your Bible, worship, or in some way grow yourself closer to Christ. Fasting when done correctly is not easy, but it is very rewarding.
