Prayer & Fasting Tutorial for Call to Prayer

Sun. Jan. 15, 11:45 a.m.–12:30 p.m., Fireside Lounge
For a short tutorial on prayer & fasting, please join Pastor Cheryl in the Fireside Lounge/Chapel this Sunday. Why fast? Be inspired from Ronnie Floyd in the Power of Prayer and Fasting:

This power is so great that regardless of the obstacle, breakthrough is possible. It can … penetrate the deepest darkness of spiritual warfare. Its advance can … break through the highest, thickest, and deepest wall ….. When the power of prayer and fasting is discovered and enveloped in your life, you will experience spiritual breakthroughs that Satan had convinced you were impossible to occur. Ah, the entry point into knowing this kind of supernatural power of God is prayer and fasting. 

*Please consult your doctor if you have health issues.

Last Chance to Join Alpha

Mondays, Jan. 16 - Feb. 27, 7:15 - 9:00 p.m., Youth Centre

Using high quality and creative videos with numerous real life stories of people encountering Jesus, conversations are created around the tables about the meaning of life, who is Jesus, why He had to die and why it would be relevant to me. *Who would Jesus like you to invite?
