Invitation to Fast During Lent
Some people have expressed an interest to set aside a time of corporate fasting. It is a time when we combine our thoughts and voices to pray for our nation, our state and city our leaders, our church and ourselves to seek God's Voice to lead us to a deeper understanding of Himself and how to minister to each other, both inside and outside the walls of our church. Due to medical conditions, etc., everyone can decide if they wish to fast for one meal or the entire day, that is your personal choice. Please, speak with your doctor or other professional if you have conditions that may prevent fasting from food to ensure you get medical approval. You may also participate with another type of fast, for example,  by spending an hour or more without using electronics or social media and instead focus yourself in prayer on  God.

Sundays at 10:00am
Sunday mornings in the Logos Lounge (L-1) college students come together to share in faith and process life opportunities, challenges, and questions together. Each week begins with a Bible study, devotions, and prayer. Then the floor will be open to discuss life, current events, and issues facing the church. In the midst of our discussions, we’ll seek to listen to and learn from what God’s Word reveals and to be respectful and supportive of one another. Come and be among “open hearts, open minds, and open doors.” Here at King Ave Campus Ministry ALL are Welcome!
