Calling All Men!
Today, more than ever, the world needs us! Men who will step up and courageously be a Godly example at home, at church, at work, and now more than ever – in their communities. This message is about going into all the world and how to do it properly. Too many of us have shrunk back from that responsibility for too long, expecting someone else to do it. Step into morning study where you will no longer be left without an understanding of what you need to do.
The scripture we recognize for this men’s study is Colossian 3:12-17 (CEB) “Therefore, as God’s choice, holy and loved, put on compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. 13 Be tolerant with each other and, if someone has a complaint against anyone, forgive each other. As the Lord forgave you, so also forgive each other. 14 And over all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity. 15 The peace of Christ must control your hearts – a peace into which you were called in one body. And be thankful people. 16 The word of Christ must live in you richly. Teach and warn each other with all wisdom by singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Sing to God with gratitude in your hearts. 17 Whatever you do, whether in speech or action, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus and give thanks to God the Father through Him.”
Though we are all at different places along the path, our responsibilities are still the same. Mark Weiss will be hosting on the mornings of Sunday thru Wednesday and Friday. Each morning will typically begin with a look into scripture and introduce one aspect of conversion right alongside an education into the process of brewing beer. Please join us as we find within ourselves the strength to produce Godly fruit and to help others renew their relationship with our Heavenly Father and Our Messiah. The scripture reading should inspire lively discussion for education and understanding. This will encourage a wonderful group effort. Let us be about our Father’s business!
We would hope that every man could attend but also realize that the feast is special for family time and in no way are we asking any father to forfeit that valuable time with your families.
Christian Courtship in a Dating World
Dating is tough, but dating as a Christian is even tougher. Is today’s dating system broken? What’s the difference between dating and courting? How do we put God first while also pursuing a future spouse? How do we know if we’ve found the one? What are some potential pitfalls and heartbreaks that can be avoided when we court rather than date? How do things like “always being in a relationship”, premarital sex and shame, and unrealistic expectations affect our future marriages?
As a couple that’s been married 7 years now and has made many mistakes in their dating and married lives, Adam & Ashley Clark hope to share some insight into lessons they’ve learned the hard way as well as offer encouragement as you take on the battle of Christian courtship in a modern world.
