The Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah) is celebrated this year at sundown on Friday, September 18th thru Sunday, September 20th, 2020. It is celebrated in the month of Tishri, which is the seventh month of the Biblical calendar, and is a special and holy time to seek God. The previous month of Elul is the time of preparation. This season is a time of reflection, contemplation, and putting things in order and getting right our relationship with God.
The Feast of Trumpets is the Biblical New Year. There is little resemblance between the Feast of Trumpets, one of the holiest days of the year, and a typical New Year’s Eve midnight drinking party. It is a celebration of the earth’s physical birthday on Tishri 1, the seventh month of the biblical calendar, the first month of the civil calendar. It is the first of the fall holidays and usually occurs in September.
The Feast of Trumpets and Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) are the holiest days of the Biblical year. These ten days are called the Days of Awe or High Holy Days. Unlike other holy days, they do not celebrate a season or historical event. This season is a time for looking inward to spiritual growth.

3-Day Esther Fast
IT’S TIME FOR US TO FALL ON OUR FACES BEFORE GOD AND PRAY AND FAST. THIS IS URGENT! With all the chaos, lawlessness, burning of bibles, persecutions of the Christian Church and destruction that is occurring all over, we are calling a 3-day Fast on October 28-30th (prior to the national election). These are the guidelines for the Fast:
6:00 am - 6:00 pm each day
Liquids only during those time slots
Esther (the Book of Esther, Chapters 1-10) and the Jews faced circumstances similar to what we are experiencing now; annihilation, hate, greed, envy, animosity and so much more. Life can be hard. Difficult times happen, and pain cannot be avoided. When life doesn’t make sense, do you turn to God or away from Him? No, lets trust and obey, pray and fast as Esther did. And watch God silently weave all events, chaotic and destructive for His glory . . . and for our good.
