Men have a distinct calling on their lives.
That mandate is to reflect the character of God as you provide and protect both spiritually and physically for those God has entrusted to your care. Whether in the home, workplace, or church, God calls you as a man to provide leadership that points people to find their satisfaction fully in Christ.
Our greatest need as men is not peak physical strength, a dizzying intellect, or reaching the next rung on the corporate ladder; it's understanding and knowing God (Jeremiah 9:23-24). In light of this, we gather together every Tuesday (September - May) for a time of prayer, mutual encouragement, and meditation on God's Word.
We are currently walking through the books of I Peter, II Peter, and Jude, which speak of the suffering that in some measure awaits every Christian and the great hope we have in Christ that strengthens us to persevere. Our study is drawing from resources by Edmund Clowney and Dick Lucas/Christopher Green. Purchasing the books is recommended, but not required.
This year, both an online and in person option are available:
The online session meets over Zoom at 6:30am. If you plan to attend, please click here to register and you will be sent the Zoom link.
The in person session meets at the church in the Commons at noon. Please click here to register.
After Peter wrote about the great love and mercy God bestowed upon His people through Jesus Christ in the power of the Spirit, which He displayed by not only calling us out of sin's darkness and into His marvelous light, but also by making us His treasured possession, the apostle wrote in 1 Peter 2:11: Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul.'
In the fight of faith, God gives us brothers and sisters in Christ to help us live out our faith in exile in this world. One means toward that end is our men's and women's gathering on the third Wednesday of every month from September to May. We pray this will be a biblically-rooted and relationally-rich time God will use to grow us as a community who sojourns together as we follow Jesus daily. This year's theme is Living as Hope-Filled Exiles. As our culture's opposition to the biblical worldview increases, so must our efforts to help one another stand firm and live out our hope in Jesus Christ.
Sojourners for men meets in Room E.
