LIFEPOINTE FAMILY,

 

It is time to launch 2016! The way we start will impact the way we finish. We are all on a Heroic Journey. A brand new year brings brand new choices and possibilities. This is going to be your year of breakouts and breakthroughs!!

I am so expectant about our annual 21-day fast called Awakening (can you believe this is our 7th year to do this as a church family)! We are now just a few weeks away: January 10 - 30 (noon), 2016.

The benefits of spiritual fasting are incomprehensible and indescribable!

 

Maybe you have been asking:

o   Why don't I have spiritual passion?

o   Will I see restoration in my marriage?

o   Can I ever overcome my compulsions?

o   How will my kids experience God for themselves?

o   What will be my response to the economy?

o   Where will I start?

 

You need more than a resolution, more than a commitment, and more than a whim. It's time for a radical new beginning, a breakthrough of miracle proportions- a supernatural revolution!

Prepare to PRIORTIZE the dates and detes on the .pdf downloads (see below). Below are tools for preparation that include both instruction and worksheets. We have creative plans for kids too. This is going to be an amazing season of setting ourselves apart. Take the preparation period and process with great focus. How you prepare has a lot to do with how your experience will go. Now is the time to carve out the time to let that happen.

STRETCH yourself beyond what you ever thought you could do and watch God’s grace flood your life; you NEED to see God do that with and for you!!

This is going to be amazing! Let the awakenings begin!!

Pastor
