OctoberFast 2023 - Week 1

OctoberFast: It’s HERE! Our annual month of fasting and prayer, OctoberFast, begins SUNDAY, October 1st. We are so excited about what God will do during this special season! This year, we will be going deep into the story of Jonah and what it means to say “yes” to God.

Week One: October 1-7
October 1 – Sunday: OctoberFast kick-off at 10am
October 2-6 –  Fasting from dairy, refined sugars, and sweets
October 2-6 – 1-hour slots in the Prayer Room from 6am-12 midnight
October 4 – Wednesday: Family meal, 6-7pm at FOL
October 4 – Wednesday: Bible Study in Jonah, 7-8pm at FOL
October 6 – Friday: Family Worship from 7-8pm at FOL

You can access the OctoberFast Guidebook and sign up for 1-hour slots in the Prayer Room on the OctoberFast Resources Page.

We also want to bring your attention to three special weekly OctoberFast events. Please note that, unfortunately, we are not able to provide childcare for these events.
  • Every Wednesday, we will have a family meal–within the fasting guidelines–before Bible Study. Dinner will be from 6-7pm on October 6, 13, and 20, and will begin at 5:30 PM on October 27th. 
  • Wednesday Night Bible Study exploring the book of Jonah will be from 7-8 PM each week. 
  • On Fridays, we will have a time of family worship beginning at 7 PM.
