“I humbled my soul with fasting.” Psalm 35:13 What is Christian fasting? The Bible speaks of fasting as abstaining from food for a time in order to grow spiritually, glorify God, enhance our spirit, receive healing, and grow our prayer life. Fasting is not a way to get God to do what we want; fasting changes us, not God. It is more about denying our natural appetites and raising our spiritual appetites. Fasting should also be confidential and not something you tell others you are doing (see Matthew 6:16-18).
TYPES OF FASTING Fasting can take many forms. For instance, you could fast from things that are a sacrifice for you like internet surfing, computer games, shopping, media, TV, radio, music, Twitter, texting, etc. Be creative, design your own type of fast. Ask God what kind of fast he would have you do. Fasting from food is not to be taken lightly. If you are new to fasting food please consult your doctor.
FOOD FASTING OPTIONS You may fast from all or selected meals in a day or from "between meal" snacks or after meal deserts. You may also fast from particular foods or drinks like meat, dairy, coffee, tea, alcohol, pop, chocolate, etc.. You may decide to fast from solids and only take in liquids such as juices, soups, smoothies. A 'Daniel' fast - as found in the book of Daniel 10:3 - where he "ate no choice food, no meat or wine touched my lips." Fast from delicacies, stick to fresh fruit and vegetables. The 5 Food Fast - (just eating nuts, fruit, vegetables, yogurt, red meat).
FASTING TIPS Plan your fast. Pray and ask God for protection, strength, and wisdom during your fast. Look ahead because you may have to rearrange your schedule or change your grocery list. Start small. As with anything, fasting requires practice to become better at it. Set yourself a challenging, but realistic goal. Begin and end well. When fasting from food, the meals before and after the fasting period should be smaller and lighter than usual. End your fast gradually. Drink plenty of water to prevent dehydration.
REDEEM THE TIME Where possible, the time that is not spent on eating (or whatever else you choose to fast from) is spent on your relationship with God, prayer, reading the Bible and seeking the Lord.
WARNINGS Do not fast from water. Also, fasting from food is unwise if you are diabetic, hypoglycemic, prone to migraines, pregnant, taking medication, or recovering from sickness. Do not fast from red meat if you are inclined to anemia. If you have any doubts/questions, please talk to a health care professional. Fasting is entirely voluntary. WE ALWAYS RECOMMEND CONSULTING YOUR HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL FOR ADVICE BEFORE UNDERTAKING ANY FOOD FAST.

annual Outdoor baptism service | august 24th
WHAT: ANNUAL OUTDOOR BAPTISM SERVICE - A CELEBRATION OF PEOPLE WHO ARE READY TO TAKE THEIR NEXT STEP BY GOING PUBLIC WITH THEIR COMMITMENT TO CHRIST.
WHEN: SUNDAY, AUGUST 24, 2014 | 11:00AM OUTDOOR SERVICE
WHERE: COUNTY LINE CHURCH POND
If you are interested in being baptized, please pick up a baptism worksheet at the Welcome Center and return it to one of our pastors. Our pastors would also be happy to answer any questions you may have about baptism as you pray over your decision.
We recommend baptism for children in Third Grade and older. If your child in 1st grade - 5th grade is considering baptism we have a terrific study guide for you to complete with them at home. Please contact Kids pastor Mary Ellen Rayle at email@example.com to discuss your child's baptism and to get the workbook. When you are finished with it I would like to meet with your child to see their workbook, hear their faith story and learn their understanding of baptism.
Sign up for this year's Baptism below:
Baptism is not a condition for salvation, but rather an act of obedience brought to completion when you have chosen to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Baptism allows you to make a public declaration of your faith in Christ. Know that only your acceptance of Christ ensures your salvation.
