21 Days of Prayer and Fasting is a collective church-wide call to grow closer to God and to believe God for all that He wants to do in our lives. During these 21 Days we are praying that God speaks to you through prayer, worship and reading His Word. We believe you will see God begin to work in your family, relationships, work, finances and in every area of your life!

During the 21 Days we will also have the Worship Center open at the North & South Campuses for prayer from 12pm-1pm Monday – Thursday. On Friday at each campus we will have a corporate time of worship and prayer from 12pm-1pm.
