8. CORPORATE PRAYER AND FASTENING. Corporate prayer and fastening will be taking place Wednesday, October 18th. This is a time where we as a church DENY ourselves of all food and drink outside of water and fruit in order to DEVOTE ourselves to God in prayer.

Asking everyone to participate in our corporate prayer and fast on October 18th.
