Men’s Ministry

 

Mission Statement (Men’s Ministry):

We are living in a fast paced world today which seems to require more and more of our time just to keep up with the daily requirements of our homes and families. It seems difficult to carve out even a small amount of time to build relationships. Naturally we should all be daily growing closer to the Lord through prayer, and meditating on His Word. And of course we need to give of ourselves all that we can to loving and leading our families. But we should not overlook the importance of building relationships with other men who are our brothers in Christ. Our enemy Satan would prefer to keep us isolated and doubting our abilities to fight for righteousness. Many times we pridefully tell ourselves that we can handle any adversity on our own. In 1st Corinthians 10:12,13. God’s Word warns us;

 Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed that he does not fall. No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.”   (NASB)

             It is easy when we are alone to believe that our weaknesses are unique to us. We as men need each other in order to be our best and strongest. God never intended that we fight our battles alone.  So let us strive to set aside time to build relationships with our brothers in the local Church. This will not happen by chance. We need to make an effort. And through this effort with God’s help we will help each other to be the men that the Creator intended us to be, that we might bring Him glory whether serving in the Church, in our homes, or in the community. As iron sharpens iron, let us keep each other sharp and prepared to serve God with a grateful heart.
