1st of the Month Fast


“Is not this the fast that I choose:
to loose the bonds of wickedness,
to undo the straps of the yoke,
to let the oppressed go free,
and to break every yoke?
7 Is it not to share your bread with the hungry
and bring the homeless poor into your house;
when you see the naked, to cover him,
and not to hide yourself from your own flesh?
8 Then shall your light break forth like the dawn,
and your healing shall spring up speedily;
your righteousness shall go before you;
the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.
Isaiah 58:6-8

As a we purse greater wholeness this year, we believe we’re not only called to the wholeness of ourselves but of our community. On the first of each month, we invite you to fast and give the money you would have spent on food or drink that day. Choose a physical fast that’s appropriate for your health and stage of life (for example, food, food and drink, coffee, sugar, etc). Give though the Missio app or webpage HERE (be sure to select “1st of the Month Fast” Giving).

On the Sunday following the 1st, as a community we will vote on where we want our collective fast offering to go.
