MEN

MONTHLY MEN’S BREAKFAST 

On the second Saturday of each month all men aged 14 and up (roughly 9th grade) are invited to come together for fellowship, singing and to hear stories of God’s grace in the lives of ordinary men.  A hearty meal and humorous interactions set the tone for connections to be made with other men in the church.  This is a great way for newcomers and old-timers alike to learn more about each other in the context of worship and grace.

MANHOOD RESTORED – How the Gospel Makes Men Whole

Many men have wondered how to raise their sons to be godly men in a culture that seems opposed to the very concept of masculinity.
 
At the same time, others are reeling from the carnage of men who misuse their masculinity to bully and intimidate others. 
 
This year we will set forth a model for manhood that is based on the GOSPEL, which builds (and restores!) godly men from the inside out.
Men’s Ministry Deep Dive Groups 

Deep Dive Groups are short-term studies of either a section from the Bible or a recommended book. 

Future Men – Raising Boys to Fight Giants:
 
What do you see when young boys run past you at church? Do you see little boys or do you see future men? 
 
In this book Douglas Wilson gives us biblical guidance on what masculinity looks like so that we can evaluate and apply that to our own context.  This book discussion is aimed at young fathers, but is open to anyone who has a future man in their lives. 
 
Beginning mid October, Pastor Grant will lead this 10 week study, which is limited to 10. Meeting day and time – TBD.
 
Email Grant for additional information or to register at gwinnes@hffbc.org
 
 
 
Conquer Series:
 
A number of men in our own church have overcome a variety of addictions by digging into their own story and understanding the underlying pressures that trigger them to act out.  
 
Though the content of this group focuses on sexual addiction, the group welcomes men who struggle with any form of addiction – from cigarettes to coffee, procrastination to porn.  [The strength of a support group has been shown to be effective against the power of secrets that keep men in isolation.  If you, or someone you know, wants to finally be free of the shame of secret sin – whatever that is – please take the next step and join us!] 
 
Beginning October 13 and meeting on Wednesday evenings, Jonathan Hornbeck will lead this 10 week study, Meeting time – TBD.
 
Email Jonathan, jonathan.hornbeck@gmail.com for additional information and to register. 
Men’s Friday Morning Bible Study: 
 
This group of guys meets every Friday morning at the church at 7:00 AM.  The first 30 minutes is spent in practical conversation – usually personal updates or the days biggest news stories. The last 30-45 is spent studying a book of the Bible.  We are currently going through the Book of Amos.  It is open-ended and all men are encouraged to drop in on the conversation.  No sign-up is required.
