CHASING GOD: SEASONS OF LIFE

Chasing God is a series of evenings set aside for the sole purpose of drawing near to God. Through music and worship, teaching from some great speakers, prayer and enough flexibility to respond to God in the moment, we hope that significant life change will happen!

Every Night Online. One Night Onsite.

INVITATION TO FAST

STARTING MONDAY, OCTOBER 19 

We are inviting our church body to come together to fast and pray for Chasing God because we believe God will honor and bless the sacrifice. The invitation is for each of us to take part in a fast from all food for at least one day the week of Chasing God. Try asking God what the fast should look like specifically for you.

One of the benefits of a church-wide fast is that you are not alone! We want each person to feel supported while fasting so they can experience all God may have for them.

During Chasing God, we know that God can move in mighty ways! If we seek more of Him, He wants to give Himself to us. “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13

There are many examples in the Bible of God calling His people to fast and pray together, often toward a specific end. This can be seen throughout Scripture (Esther 4:16, Nehemiah 9:1, Ezra 8:21-23). In the book of Acts, the church came together to fast and pray for those leading the churches: “Paul and Barnabas appointed elders for them in each church and, with prayer and fasting, committed them to the Lord, in whom they had put their trust.” Acts 14:23

If you choose to fast for more than a day, typically the 2nd and 3rd days of any fast are the most difficult. It is normal to experience: dry mouth (drink water or chew gum), lightheadedness (drink some juice), hunger pangs (if severe, please consult a doctor), going to the restroom a lot (you are likely drinking a lot more water than usual), and changes to your sleeping pattern.

Yes! We will encourage one another in the Chasing God Facebook Group. There will also be the following opportunities:

  • Sunday, 7pm (Oct. 18)
    Prayer & Worship Gathering
  • Monday — Wednesday AM (Oct. 19–21)
    Chapel at Jackson Road open for prayer
  • Monday — Wednesday, noon (Oct. 19–21)
    Live Stream
  • Monday — Tuesday PM (Oct. 19–20)
    At Home Prayer Focus found in the Facebook Group

SCHEDULE

Wednesday, October 21 | “In the Thick of It”
(Travis Conklin, The Vine Goshen Vineyard Church)
Juggling the endless demands of your life isn’t easy. They might come from your work, your family or both and one thing that you are sure of is that life can be a difficult balancing act! *Vineyard Kids now available for children up through 5th grade

Thursday, October 22 | “Ready for Life”
(Peter Louis, UpperRoom, Dallas, TX)
Maybe you’re still in school, figuring out your relationship status or you are just trying to get your life together, but you’re under thirty and your story is only beginning.

Friday, October 23 | “Ready for the Next Big Thing” 
(Kevin Clark, The Vineyard Lexington, KY)
You’re in the middle of your life and things might be changing — perhaps you're rediscovering your purpose, the kids are moving out, or retirement planning is becoming more urgent. Regardless, another chapter in life is approaching, and it’s time to get ready!

Saturday, October 24 | “Not Done Yet” 
(Tom Harmon, Tom Harmon Ministries)
You have seen a lot in life and have the wisdom that only comes with age. Sometimes it feels like the world has cast you as what “was,” but the truth is you are not done yet!


With the anticipation of continued social distancing, this year's Chasing God will be a little different. Each night will be live streamed and focus on a specific season of life, but each night we will also open up a specific number of seats and invite you to choose one night — that’s ONE night — to attend in person if you’d like!
