01. Why should I fast?
Christians traditionally fast during Lent, the 40 days leading up to Easter. This helps us focus on Jesus and better dedicate ourselves to Him as we remember His sacrifice for us on the cross. During the Easter Fast, we can pray for the friends, family, and co-workers in our life who don’t know Jesus. We can pray that God will give us opportunities to talk with them about our faith and invite them to Easter at Vernonia Church.
