OctoberFast 2021 is HERE! Our theme this year is “Commissioned” and we are very excited to see what the Lord is going to do as we meet with Him in prayer and fasting this month. You can find all the information you’ll need on the OctoberFast page and in the app, including what OctoberFast is all about, the fasting guidelines, our weekly scripture focus, and the prayer sign up.

- What is our theme this year? Our theme this month is “Commissioned” and we are focusing on Jesus’ call to go and make disciples. It is about joining God in His work of expanding the presence of the Kingdom of God in our world. It is about us, as ordinary people, being tied and called by an extraordinary God to live out the purpose and mission He has for us in His power.
- What are our prayer opportunities this year?
- Our Prayer Ministry invites you to join them in dedicating the first 30 minutes of each day to the Lord. Just this simple discipline will allow you to experience the joyous presence of the Lord for over 900 minutes!
- You are also invited to join the Prayer Ministry at 4th Watch prayer via Zoom every Friday morning from 3-6am to share prayer, observations, and revelations about what God is doing.
- You are invited to participate in personal and community prayer using our shared prayer sign up. We will not have the Prayer Room open this year, but we invite you to sign up for times you will commit to prayer as an individual or with others. You can also use this link to share your own prayer requests (by name or anonymously) as well as insights, revelations, or encouragement for others on the shared community prayer wall.
- Where can I find information and materials? Everything is on our OctoberFast page and app! Paper copies of the guidebook are also available for pick-up on Sundays during our parking lot service.
- Commissioning Service is going to take place on Saturday, October 23 and will be a special event where you can come to the church and our church leaders and prayer ministry will lay hands on you and pray over your own commissioning. More details to come
- What is our focus this week? We will be fasting from SCREEN TIME. We will refrain from any screens or media not related to use for work, school, or church. Our scripture focus will be Genesis 12:1-9, God’s calling of Abram. You can find the OctoberFast Bible reading plan on the app by tapping on the Bible icon, then Plan.
