Monday Night Men’s Group
Biblical, real, straight-talking, where guys of all ages learn, grow and laugh together. When attending the men’s group, expect to be warmly welcomed and introduced to a passion for homemade popcorn like you’ve never seen! After an initial time of hanging out and eating, everyone meets together in a large group for a lesson, then breaks into smaller groups – life groups – for discussion and prayer. In your life group, you will learn to live your faith as you share about and care for each other’s life experiences.
Colossians: Winning the Jackpot with Guest Teacher, Dr. David Renwick
In his letter to the church in the city of Colossae (in modern day Turkey), the Apostle Paul describes the path of life God calls us to pursue once our lives have become intimately connected to the most important person who ever lived. To Paul, Jesus of Nazareth is this unique person. Like winning the lottery, excitement, privilege, and a whole new set of responsibilities become ours when we realize that Jesus is passionately interested in knowing us and giving the full wealth of his life to each of us as individuals and as a community. Did you know that you’ve been given a prize that’s worth more than the Powerball? Are you in danger of squandering what is rightfully yours? Join the Monday Night Men’s group as we explore the greatest gift we could ever receive.
