October Week One Theme: Reformation in Society 

Thursday, Oct 7: Let’s ask the Lord to so transform individuals and our churches that the transformed lives will begin to deeply impact our communities. 

Bible Verse: Isaiah 58:6 (NIV) “Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?”
