The Men’s Ministries of First Church, as all ministries should be, are based on the Great Commandment and the Great Commission. The ministries’ purpose is to help provide the tools to bring each man to a passion for God and be a man after God's own heart.

In all of our venues—Bible study, prayer breakfast, prayer wall, speaker meetings, work days, fellowship, conferences—we emphasize the vertical connection between us and God and the horizontal connection between each other and between us and the church community (as a whole and in small groups). Thus, the completion of the cross.

As men become comfortable in their relationship with Christ and more mature in their faith, our hope is that they will take on church leadership positions using the spiritual gifts God has given them, and that they would lead courageously. The Church—and our world—want and need more “Lion of Judah” men.

Men's Ministry Meeting

Thursday, April 18 | 6:30 PM

Marsh Building, Room M107

Our next Men’s Ministry meeting will begin with pizza and soft drinks! We’ll have fellowship, prayer, song and some faith-based discussion. Come for all or part of the meeting as your time allows. 

A new focus, inspired by Iron Sharpens Iron, will be on committing selected scripture verses to memorize together. We’ll also be discussing plans for coming months, including a kayaking/canoeing outing for late May. We will be seeking volunteers for upcoming work projects.
