Men’s 33

We are kicking off a new session of Men’s 33 that will run from February 3-March 10, 2018. The series is designed to inspire and equip men to pursue authentic manhood as modeled by Jesus Christ in His 33 years on earth. Volume I contains six sessions that explore the basic foundations of authentic manhood and God’s clear design for men.

This first volume of 33 starts with meaningful insights into the current state of manhood, which will help men navigate through some realities that have created cultural confusion. It follows by unfolding God’s mandates for all men and offering a clear definition of authentic manhood that will help men on their journey. Each participant will learn the four “faces” of manhood and how to anticipate and transition through the specific seasons of life.

Women’s Retreat February 2-3

We want to extend a warm invitation to the Women’s Winter Retreat.  We’ve planned Friday evening to call upon the Lord in keeping with our focus on prayer and our verse, “Then you will call on Me and come and pray to Me and I will listen to you.  You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart.”  Jeremiah 29:12, 13.  Come share in a time of worship and prayer as we focus on praying for specific topics to include:  our nation, our families and children, our unsaved loved ones and more.  Saturday will be a teaching on prayer by nationally known speaker and author, Jill Savage.  Jill’s sessions are as follows:

  • Faith–Do I have God-sized faith?
  • Truth–Am I walking in the flesh or the Spirit?
  • Hope–Are my eyes on the mountains or the Mountain Mover?
