VISION OF THE In His Great Name: To plant Trees in the people of God
We will fast from the media.
Monday through Friday, we will refrain from TV, the telephone, and the computer, after 6:00 p.m. to spend quality time in study and prayer as a family or individually.
We will fast from spending.
We will also give up unnecessary spending. When we refrain from unnecessary spending, then we are developing what Richard Foster calls, the spiritual discipline of a “simplistic lifestyle.” Developing a simplistic lifestyle is key to not letting possessions possess you and laying up for yourselves treasure in heaven (Matthew 6:19-24).
We will fast from food.
Throughout the forty days of Lent, we invite you to observe a season of progressive sacrifice as listed below:
February 18 - February 28
No sweets/No eating after 6:00 p.m.
March 1 - March 11
Miss one meal a day
March 12 - March 22
Miss two meals a day
March 23 - April 2
Liquid fast/No solid food You also have the option of doing the Daniel fast for 40 days (consisting of water, fruits, and vegetables only) or a 21 day liquid fast starting March 13, 2015. Fasting is a personal matter, so fast at whatever level you feel comfortable.
