Weekly Men’s “Friendship” series

Did you know that a growing group of men have begun meeting for Bible study and discussion?  The study is an 8 week series on Friendship.  Too many men have become isolated from strong, male friendships.  Many friendships aren’t of a caliber that truly encourages them to pursue a man’s walk with Christ.  The result leaves men disconnected, which is described as “being two quarts low in their spiritual lives” – everything is harder!  These meetings are all about helping men transform through strong relationships.

Men, age 16 and up, you are invited to jump into the process.

Meeting dates/times:

  • Tuesdays at 6:00 pm
  • Tuesdays at 7:45 pm
  • Thursdays at 6:00 am

For more information, contact Matt Horton or the church office.
