3 Days of Prayer and Fasting For Easter

We are calling a church-wide fast to contend for the souls of those who don’t know Jesus in Ventura. We believe in the power of prayer and believe that if anything of significance is going to happen in our city it is going to be birthed in prayer. So let’s pray and fast and behalf of those who don’t know Jesus this Easter season.

Our 3 days of fasting will start on Maundy Thursday, Apr 18 and end on Holy Saturday, Apr 20. Here are a few ways you can fast:

  • Complete Fast → Drink only water for 3 days

  • Juice/Soup Fast → Abstain from any solid foods

  • Partial Fast → Abstain from eating any type of food sunup to sundown

If you have health concerns, or would like to add an additional layer to you food fast, consider a soul fast:

  • Soul Fast → Abstain from all media (Social media, tv, music, books, podcasts, etc.)

3 Friends

Also, we are challenging each person in our church to invite 3 friends, family members, coworkers, neighbors, who are far from God and disconnected to the church to hear the good news about Jesus Christ this easter.

Our fasting and inviting will go hand in hand. As you plan you fast, plan who you’re inviting. As your consider how you’ll fast, consider how you’ll invite. As you fast, invite.

Anthem Denver Prayer Tour

The Anthem Denver team is inviting the entire family of churches to join them in visiting and praying for the city. As we walk Denver and its neighborhoods, we’ll seek to understand God’s heart for the people there, to discern spiritual strongholds, and to call upon the Lord to bring spiritual, relational, and cultural renewal to Denver through the gospel of Jesus Christ. The tour will include earnest prayer, exploration of the city, teachings from different leaders, times of worship together, and a ton more.

Giving at Anthem

Giving cheerfully and sacrificially is a part of worship at Anthem. We give generously because God has first been generous to us. We dream of becoming a church marked by radical generosity. Ten percent of every dollar goes directly to supporting compassion and church planting work both globally and locally.

With Planning Center you can login at any time to view your giving history, make changes to your account, and update giving information.
