Eagleville Bible Church is passionate about its attenders seeking God at all times! We desire for those that attend to have a vibrant and growing faith, and we exist to help everyone experience a great life in Jesus Christ. One of the ways you can grow in your faith is to observe the Lent season along with us in 2022.
From March 7th through Good Friday (April 15th) we will be observing a dedicated time of increased self-examination and observance of Spiritual disciplines, in order to prepare our hearts for the celebration of Easter. It is our desire that we would collectively follow a Devotional plan on the YouVersion Bible App, and to observe Days of Fasting throughout these 40 days.
Here are the dates especially set apart for fasting, called Fast Fridays, and the Prayer focus for those dates:
- 3/11 - Health Issues
- 3/18 - Marriages & Families
- 3/25 - Churches (Unity, love, protection, fruitfulness, etc.)
- 4/1 - Wisdom for Living
- 4/8 - The Gospel (for the lost to be saved!)
- 4/15 - A Spiritual Revival
You are encouraged to eat dinner on Thursday evenings, then to set aside food for a 24hr period to observe the fast. If this is not feasible for you, then we would encourage you to set aside something else of significance to you that day (maybe your lunch, or coffee). Along with Fast Fridays, we are encouraging everyone to choose something to fast (abstain) from throughout all of the 40 days (e.g., television, Social Media, sweets, bad language, alcohol, etc.) in order to more fully seek the Lord.
"Fasting is, indeed, feasting. When we have learned well to fast, we will not suffer from it.
It will bring strength and joy." (Dallas Willard)
Charity is another big aspect of Lent. Eagleville Bible Church wants to present you the opportunity to give towards Eagleville's short term Mission trip to Honduras as your Charitable contribution. We will be taking up a special offering at the Good Friday service at Eagleville Bible Church on 4/15/22 @ 7:15pm.
