Our Men’s Group has been going strong this summer and now we have started a new meeting schedule where we go every other Wednesday in order to allow for the Ladies to begin meeting on the opposite Wednesday. This Wednesday we had 19 guys show up for fellowship, prayer, scripture and discussion. I am particularly blessed by the participation of Rocky, Chris and Dustin from the local Union Gospel Mission’s men’s program. These guys are on the road out of addiction and it’s great to have them part of our time together. These gatherings are a highlight of my week, I find life in our attempts to work out this Christian faith and in the relationships being strengthened and forming through this group.
Our group is an eclectic group of men…young and old, different backgrounds and interests…but I think I am not alone in recognizing that there is a noticeable grace that is present in our times together. I look forward to seeing these men continue to be discipled and purposefully discipling one another in the way and life of Jesus.
“Be careful then, dear brothers, make sure that your own hearts are not evil and unbelieving, turning you away from the living God. You must warn each other every day, while it is still “today,” so that none of you will be deceived by sin and hardened against God.” -Hebrews 3:12-13
