Men’s Morning & Men’s Evening
In an interactive setting, most quarters we offer a book study discussion group for men. Most books are open for participation of those 15 and older and either start at 6:00 AM or 7:00 PM. Indeed, this ministry has taken dozens and dozens of men through dozens of dozens of quality books over the many years it has been offered. In addition to what is gained from reading a quality, biblical resource and the discussion of meaty questions pertaining to it, you will also enjoy the brother-to-brother fellowship and lasting relationships this time provides you.
Winter 2018 Men’s Morning: Reset
Burnout, stress, depression, and fatigue are all common symptoms for modern man, but life doesn’t have to be this way. We invite you to breathe in God’s grace and exhale His joy with us this winter as we study Reset by David Murray. This book is full of wise counsel and biblical tools for building a sustainable, “grace-paced” life where you can rest in Christ and finish the course well. Doug McKeever will lead this Men’s Morning study on Wednesdays from 6:00-7:00 AM beginning January 10. Book cost is $7.50; sign up in the foyer.
A few times a year we call our men out on a Saturday morning for a time of fellowship and challenge. In what we call the Iron Sharpening Iron series, we are focusing on critical topics that every man should face and draw biblical convictions about.
Men’s Bible Study Breakfast
“I don’t know if I can ever change.” Thoughts like that are common, but Christ offers us incredible hope and instruction, no matter what our past. Guys 10 and older, join us for a free Bible-study breakfast led by Pastor Mark that will have the scent of men all over it! Turn toward fulfilling your calling from God as you dig into a passage of 1 Timothy 1 that’s dripping with hope for men who have failed terribly, treated others brutally, or have been anything but godly. Join us on Saturday, February 24 from 8:30-11:00 AM.
Contenders for the Faith
Contenders is the boy’s branch of SCBC’s Keepers of the Faith discipleship ministry. God places the responsibility for discipling children squarely on the shoulders of parents. Contenders generally meets the third Wednesday of the month, 7:00 – 9:00 PM throughout the school year. Fathers, sons, and all guys ages 6 and up are welcome. Men without sons are highly encouraged to attend.
2017-2018 Season: Contenders 4G
Contenders goes “4G” this season, looking at the greatness, glory, grace, and goodness of our God and practically connecting these attributes to our own daily walk. Fathers with sons 6+ (and all men) are invited to come out for fun activities and hands-on skills, field trips, solid biblical teaching, and more in our monthly Contenders meetings on Wednesdays at 6:30 PM. This season’s meeting dates are: September 20, October 18, November 15, January 17, February 21, March 21, and April 18. Contact Torrey Y. for more information.
Fathers/Teen Sons Discipleship
On a periodic basis we offer a smaller group setting for fathers and teen sons to meet on a weekday evening and discuss important issues of biblical manhood.
Watch for future opportunities in the bulletin and our quarterly brochures.
Parenting Classes & Small Groups
We believe that being a godly father means stepping up and fulfilling your responsibilities with vigor. Thus we aim to avoid facilitating the abdication of those responsibilities by offering many church events or programs that subtly take over the shepherding you as a dad should be doing. Hand in hand with that conviction is a commitment to equip you as a parent and a husband to grow in your ability to lead your family as you ought.
The investment you make as a father in taking one of our parenting classes or joining a small group aimed at building you up in your role as a family shepherd will pay long-term dividends in helping you be fully engaged with your God-given followers. The quarterly Equipping & Service Opportunities brochure outlines what is currently being offered.
