Prayer and Fasting

Choose Your Crew Sunday and More
Discovery Friends and Family,

We are in the middle of five days of fasting and prayer. I have been fasting and praying 1-2 meals a day and have a confession: I am hungry. Fasting is hard. It takes hard work and dedication to deprive ourselves of food. I think that is why Jesus asked us to fast. We learn sacrifice as a followers of Jesus when we demonstrate obedience even when it's not easy. We experience a hunger for Jesus that is stronger than a hunger for food. We learn to relate to the words of Jesus, "Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes out of the mouth of God." I am also hearing from God about our vision at Discovery and what he wants to do in 2019. I pray that you are hearing from God as well.

There are three exciting things you need to know about this Sunday: 

1) We are continuing the life-changing series You in Five Years. I have heard people all week commenting about this series. You don't want to miss a single week of it.

2) You have an opportunity of a lifetime to attend the Estate Planning Workshop following the morning service, presented by Alpha Omega Ministries. I really hope that you will set aside the time to participate in this workshop. You will learn about advance care directives, a trust, and help your loved ones know exactly what you desire when you are gone.

I have discovered as a pastor that many people just aren't prepared for this. It's time to get prepared! I learned after losing my father (who didn't have a will) just how difficult it is to make decisions regarding his final care and taking care of his estate. The workshop will only be an hour, lunch is provided, and it starts at 11:30 AM. Hope to see you there!

3) It is Choose Your Crew Sunday in the lobby before and after the service, and the following Sunday as well. You get the chance to learn about and be a part of new spring small groups that are staring soon. It is so important to be a part of relationship and this is your chance.

See you Sunday at 10:00 AM. 

Advancing together, 

Ben Taylor
