As we embark on our first fast as a congregation we wanted to put a name around the prayer and fasting period. Something with expectancy, power, and significance. As a team we threw around ideas and then came "Arise." Arise means "to come into being or existence; to move upward." With that, Arise is a fitting word for the fast. We have our time of prayer and fasting in the beginning of the year to go to God first. Start off our years with honing in on what God has to say, has to teach us, and discover a deeper meaning to our new year. We are believing for a year of people going to arise among circumstances, traditions, and obstacles that may stand in their way from experiencing the fullness of the Gospel and God's love for them.
