From May 16-18

We believe this month of May is the month of asking the Father to pour out His Holy Spirit and power upon us so that healing, deliverance, and breakthrough might come into our body in a supernatural way. Now is the time to begin positioning ourselves in the place of prayer and asking. We want to see God's power demonstrated in a mighty way and for the works of the devil to be destroyed and bodies to be healed and made whole by the power of God!


• May 16 and 17 we’ll fast breakfast and lunch, then have dinner at home with our own families or friends.

• Wednesday, May 18 we’ll also fast breakfast and lunch, but we’ll come together the evening of the 18th at 6 PM to break the fast and have dinner together as a church body right here at HOTFM. We will provide the BBQ meat, sauce, and cornbread. However, if you could please bring the following according to your last name:

 A-E: Drinks

 F-S: Sides

 T- Z: Desserts

If you have health issues or if you're pregnant we recommend you first pray about fasting before jumping into it; additionally, take into account your doctor’s recommendations. Finally, please be sure to drink water if you’re joining us in fasting meals. We love you all and we're excited about what the Spirit of the Lord is leading us into!


Monday, May 16, and 23 at 7 PM

Our passion is in facilitating an environment of intercession and prayer, as well as partnering with how God is moving through Lakeland, central Florida, our nation, and the world! Consider yourself invited! Meet in the youth room.


Saturday, May 21 at 6 PM at Sanctuary of Hope Church in Plant City

We're linking with our friends over at Sanctuary of Hope for a night of worship together! It's a lovely thing when the body of Christ comes together in one accord, so join us on the evening of the 21st starting at 6 PM at their Plant City location!


The address for the church where we'll meet is 5303 Smith Ryals Rd, Plant City 33567.


Sunday, May 22 at 10 AM

In addition to our corporate fast we have planned for this month, we also feel it’s important to have a special Sunday morning dedicated to a time of prayer and healing for those who need it. We want to see breakthroughs happen!


Wednesday, May 25

The goal of our Community Nights is for you to make intentional time with someone outside the four walls of the church. So get a meal with someone you just met at a Sunday service, catch up with that couple you’ve been meaning to, or have a board game night with folks you care about! We want to be intentional with our friendships, so this is the perfect evening to branch out and do just that! Note: no service at HOTFM on these evenings.


Thursday, May 26

These evenings are for The Forge Young Adults group. If you’re in the ages of 18-30 then you are absolutely welcome to join in! Note that these gatherings are often held at different locations each month. Email info@hotfmlakeland.com for information and directions.


There's also plenty happening here on a weekly basis for you to be a part of. Have a look!
