Day of Prayer and Fasting

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailFacebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

Monday, August 20 • 11:30 AM-1:00 PM • Westminster Hall

Join our FPC family for a day of prayer and fasting for mission on Monday, August 20.

The prayer committee along with the Local and Global missions committees invite you to respond to God’s grace through a day committed to prayer and fasting, an intentional time where we will prioritize our hunger and thirst for righteousness and seek the Lord’s mercy to have His kingdom come, His will be done, in and through our church as it is in heaven.

You are invited to pray wherever you are on the day of August 20, using the FPC day of prayer and fasting guide located at the link below, or in Mauze Lobby. We also encourage you to join us for a time of corporate prayer in Westminster Hall between 11:30 AM and 1:00 PM. If you are unable to refrain from food we invite you to fast from something you regularly hunger for (media, news, coffee…) as we prayerfully prioritize hungering for Christ and His kingdom through a day of prayer and fasting.

FPC seeks to join the early church in fasting and praying for mission (Acts 13:23) as we worship the Lord through prayer and fasting (Luke 2:37) and seek His will for our participation in the redemptive restoration of our neighborhoods and the nations (As Nehemiah in 1:3-4 and Ezra 9:4-5).

WEDNESDAY EVENING LADIES BIBLE STUDY
April 4 – May 23
6:30 PM • Room 302

STEADFAST LOVE, STUDY OF PSALM 107

There are times when worship overflows effortlessly from a heart full of gratitude and praise. And there are times when God seems far and we feel we have nothing to offer. Throughout it all, God shows us His steadfast love.

Psalm 107 is a call to worship. It reminds us that each season of life is an opportunity to reveal the anchor of our souls. In this Bible study, learn to face both storms and deserts with courage and trust in Jesus, and discover how tests in our journeys of faith reveal the true condition of our hearts. For there is no fear for the one who fears the Lord, the one whose soul is anchored in His steadfast love.

We will study Psalm 107 verse by verse.

Cost of workbook is $13.00.  Please contact Sheila Figueroa at shefig@earthlink.net or (210) 822-4082 to reserve a workbook.
