HOW TO FAST

The goal of fasting is to draw nearer to God.


Biblical fasting removes distractions for a spiritual purpose; it hits the reset button of our soul and renews us from the inside out.


It enables us to celebrate God's goodness and prepare our hearts for the good things He desires to give us.


Your fast should be challenging, but you must also know your body, seek God in prayer, and follow what the Holy Spirit leads you to do.

  • Partial Fast

    This fast is sometimes called the Jewish Fast and involves abstaining from eating any type of food in the morning and afternoon. This can either correlate to specific times of the day, such as 6:00 am to 3:00 pm, or from sunup to sundown.

  • Selective Fast

    This type of fast involves removing certain elements from your diet. One example of a selective fast is the Daniel Fast, during which you remove meat, sweets, or bread from your diet and consume water and juice for fluids, and fruits and vegetables for food.

  • Soul Fast

    This fast is common for those who do not have much experience fasting food, who have health issues that prevent them from fasting food, or who wish to refocus certain areas of their life that are out of balance.


    For instance, someone might select to abstain from using social media or watching television for the duration of the fast, and then choose to carefully bring that element back into their life in an orderly fashion at the conclusion of the fast.

  • Complete Fast

    This fast calls for drinking only liquids, typically water with light juices as an option.

Pray big prayers.


If you sense God has more for your life, 21 Days of Prayer is a great place to start believing Him for all that He has for you. 


As you practice seeking Him first, He will move on your behalf like never before. 


You will start to see the power of prayer impact your relationships, work, family, and every area of your life.

FAQ

So, how does Kid’s Ministry work in a movie theater?


Ronnies Cine 20 has a great party room space in the balcony of their lobby. We use this area, along with Auditorium 20, for all of our Kid’s Ministry. The space is fun, kid friendly, and large enough for us to run individual age-appropriate classrooms.



How do you keep my kid safe in a movie theater?


There is only one entrance to each of our Elevation Kids spaces. We keep one of our trained security team members at the entrance every second that we have children checked in to our program. We also use a secure check-in/check-out system: Only trained volunteers who have passed a background check, along with parents who have a tag from our check-in system are allowed in.



What if my kid needs to use the bathroom?


Any child that needs to use the restroom is taken to the bathroom by two of our background-checked volunteers. We also inform our security team that we are doing a bathroom run. Our staff check the bathrooms before kids are allowed to enter. Kids are escorted back to their classroom again by two volunteers.
