AICE Course: A 40-Day Fasting Experience

Instructors: Rev. R. L. Bachus and  Min. Pamela D. Mason
Tuesdays February 16, 23 ; 
7:00PM – 8:30PM

“Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by the devil. After fasting forty days and forty nights, He was hungry” – Matthew 4:1-2

Most of us cannot do what Jesus did for 40 days and nights, but we can serve Him as the prophetess, Anna did. At age 84, she worshiped Jesus through fasting and praying (Luke 2:37). During the 2016 Lenten Season, we are calling all Abyssinians to participate in our first 40-day corporate fasting experience. We will read the same scriptures, pray the same prayers, and fast together to strengthen our ministries and renew the witness of Christ in our lives. The journey begins on February 10th, followed by two special sessions to discuss details of the fast and hear from our first lady, Mrs. Patricia Butts on the health benefits of fasting. This is an exciting time so plan to join us as we unite our hearts together to achieve a deeper spiritual connection with God through Christ.

*Medical Disclaimer: Members with medical concerns should check first with their doctors to be sure they are physically, mentally and emotionally able to participate in a fasting experience.
