Monday Night Men’s Group

Discipling Brothers to Serve Others


Who We Are
Guys of all ages coming together on a regular basis to learn more about God’s story and how it impacts our lives. We seek to study and grow together, join in fellowship, minister to one another and support our church family and the community in which we live through service.

What We Do
We meet every Monday evening in Fellowship Hall and on-line. We hear testimonies and teachings in a large group setting (around 60 in-person and 20 on-line), then break into smaller groups – life groups – for discussion and prayer. Pizza and popcorn are served for dinner each week so you can come straight from work if you need to.

Meeting Time: 7:00-8:30 PM on Mondays
Dates: The group meets weekly from September through June
Location: Fellowship Hall and simultaneously online at
Group Leaders: Pastor Robert Austell and church members, Ted Davies & David Steiner

Spring Teaching Series: Philippians with Guest Teacher, Rev. Dr. David Renwick
April 1 – May 6; VPC’s new Theologian-in-Residence, Dr. David Renwick, brings the Book of Philippians to us this spring! The first congregation in Europe was established by Paul in the Greek city of Philippi during his second missionary journey. This new community of believers saw first-hand the imprisonment and humiliation Paul suffered to bring them the Good News of Jesus Christ. It encouraged them to trust in Jesus despite trials of their own. We, too, will grow in our faith as we learn from Paul’s letter. Full of gratitude and love for a church who supported him materially and spiritually, Paul exhorts the Philippians (and us) to continue seeking God’s power to live as servants of God and to one another.

Who Should Come?
Guys of all ages attend (from 20-95 years old last year); Guys from all walks of life; Guys at all stages of their faith journey – from new believers to lay leaders. Some guys are with us every Monday night in person, and others join when they can. Some can’t get to the church on Monday or don’t live in the area, so they join us on-line.

How to Join: If you are new to the group, you can show up any week and be welcomed. Signing up is not necessary, though the leaders will appreciate the opportunity to connect with you ahead of time if you fill out the form below.
