Join us as we fast in 2022
We would like to begin the new year of 2022 by inviting our church family to join us in fasting and prayer (Every Thursday from January 6 to February 24 during lunch time 12-12:45pm). The main purpose why we want to call our church to this is to pray for personal revival, revival for Canada (and the whole world) and revival for our church and for Christians all over the world.
Although we encourage our church family to join in fasting and prayer, please note that this is an OPTIONAL activity. For those who have medical or health issues, please consult with your doctor before you fast. If you are unable to fast, we hope you can still join us in prayer.
