New thru 40

This past Sunday we issued two challenges to our church:

1. Spend 40 days in fasting. This is not a total 40 day fast. It is up to each individual how they want to fast during this 40 day period. Some are doing a no meat fast, some a no bread, others no coffee. It doesn’t matter the what as long as it is something that is a normal part of the person’s diet and they are intentionally going without it for the spiritual purpose of discipline while each seeks God.

2. Read through the New Testament in 40 days. I have posted the reading plan below. It takes about 30 minutes a day.

We are doing this so we may focus on what God has for us as a church and as individuals during this next year. October is a planning month as we put things in order for 2011 and bringing the church together to seek God in unity makes perfect sense.

Both of these challenges will wrap up at our missions banquet on November 21. I can’t wait to see what God is going to do.
