With authentic Christian manhood as the goal, we have nicknamed our men's ministry "Man-hood". We focus on connecting men through fellowship/outreach events (Man-hood Gatherings) with a desire to accelerate their knowledge and growth in Jesus Christ (Man-hood Small Groups) for the purpose of mobilizing them in ministry (Active Man-hood). Learn more about Man-hood below, and don't hesitate to reach out to Steve if you have any questions.“Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love.” -1 Corinthians 16:13-14 ESV
"For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another." - Galatians 5:13
The objective of Man-hood Active is to mobilize men into action, serving the community for Christ's glory. We do this primarily through monthly service projects but also through bigger service/missions events on occasion.
The Men's Ministry meets every 2nd Saturday of the month for breakfast at Chick-Fil-A (Capital Circle NE) at 7:00am. After a brief devotional, we break up to do planned service projects nearby. The duration will be determined by the activity or service project, but most take less than 2-3 hours. The calendar below includes our upcoming service opportunities.
We are always looking for more ways to serve. If you have heard of a need, reach out to Dan Bernath (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Dan Evans (email@example.com). They are overseeing Active Man-hood and can add you to their email list.

"And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved." - Acts 2:46-47
As often as we can, we try to get guys together for fellowship, inviting our friends, neighbors, and coworkers to our events. Man-hood Gatherings are fun, easy ways to get to know other men at the church and get more involved in our community.
