Sugarloaf United Methodist Church Presents How to Fast
Transforming Lives Through Self-Sacrifice…Offered by Beyond the Walls Ministry
As a church body we are looking to be obedient to the Holy Spirit. Mike Devine will lead us in learning the values of fasting in preparation for our summer mission efforts. God is going to honor our efforts in ways that will surprise, inspire and delight us all.
We are having short informational meetings after each service this Sunday (May 16) in the Town Hall to introduce/invite people to participate in the fast. There will be a short announcement in our Worship Service but please invite your teams, Sunday School classes, Bible Studies, etc. to attend the meeting. Mike Devine will lead the meeting and will discuss the why and how we fast; what to expect and the spiritual significance of the fast.
Even if you are not participating in the fast, please attend one of the meetings so you are knowledgeable should any of your team members have questions. If you have fasted before please feel free to share your stories as examples and encouragement.
Saturday, May 22
9 – 9:30AM – Worship and prayer to begin the fast – Connection Café
***We will distribute “fast guides” at the worship which will include Bible passages, inspiration and encouragement and prayers for each of the mission trips.
Sunday, May 23

Remember….fasting can mean giving up anything….does not have to be food.
Looking forward to fasting with you! God bless you each and every one.
