“As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another”.
~ Proverbs 27:17
The church is in the process of revitalizing our men’s group. From the early 1990’s to just 4-5 years ago we had a fairly active group of guys who would meet in homes of group members on the first Friday of the month. The meetings would always start with a time worship through song and times of testimony: sharing of God’s faithfulness in the lives of members. Then we would break bread together as each man brought a dish to share. The evening program took on different formats….from a personal testimony of how someone came to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior, to guest speakers, video presentations, or topical bible study just to name a few. The evening would end with a time of taking prayer requests and a time of prayer. Men from the group and from the church congregation would make multi day trip to regional trips men’s conferences such as Promise Keepers. God calls us to have a personal walk with Him; more than just being a church goer or practicing methodical religion.
Goals for the group:
Help men to become faithful followers of Jesus Christ by establishing a daily habit of individual
prayer and Scripture reading.
Create a servant’s heart to serve the church and our surrounding community.
Help married men to become better husbands, fathers, grandfathers by assuming the role
of spiritual leader in their household, following God’s Word as a template.
Help men become men of integrity, which leads to better husbands, employees, citizens,
and better neighbors, and by doing so, bringing God the glory He deserves.
Create small groups of a few men to get together on a weekly or bi-weekly basis to hold
each other accountable to their walk with Jesus.
To help men to be effective witnesses for Christ in the mission field right between
their two feet.
