All Christians know they need to be better at something pertaining to their faith in God. The list if fairly common; more godly man or woman, better husband, wife or parent. Read the Bible more and pray. Become more involved in ministry. Courage to share ones faith. Do these sound familiar?

If so many Christians feel this way, what is it going to take to make the change? 
Enter spiritual disciplines; practices found in Scripture that promote spiritual growth among followers of Jesus. Actions like dedicated prayer, Scripture reading and solitude. Fasting, worship and generosity.

They sound ominous, maybe even a bit overwhelming. Maybe instead of looking at these spiritual disciplines as barriers, what if we looked at them differently. What if we viewed spiritual disciplines as the practices we engage in to make sure "the big rocks" of our faith journey go in first?

As a church family, we are going to spend the next few weeks united together in the practice of three specific spiritual disciplines, Scripture Reading, Prayer, and Fasting. It is our goal that we will deepen our faith and dependance upon God, not only individually, but as a church family as well.
