Men’s Weekend: Oct. 9-10, 2020

THEME: True Grit: Living Like Christ in a Dark World

Registration is now closed.

Link to Saturday Worship Song Lyrics

Our theme is True Grit – Living Like Christ in a Dark World. It is such a relevant theme because, as we have seen highlighted in recent days, we live in a dark world filled with injustice and evil. We strive to be the light of Christ in this world but often find our light dimmed by our own struggles. How do we see the world through God’s eyes or find God’s purpose for us in it?

We have constant temptations and endless distractions. How do we shake off the demands of a temporal world to pursue the rewards of eternity? We can only do so by actively pursuing Christ each day and striving to show others His love and point them to Him. We hope to meet Friday night and enjoy dinner, worship, messages, and testimonies together and then spend Saturday together at Bluemont Park.

We would love for you to join us at the Men’s True Grit Weekend to better understand our persistent battle to live like Christ in a Dark World, and to commit to a dynamic, joyful relationship with God.

  • Session One – Intro to 1 Tim.1:5 and Worship – Pastor King
  • Session Two – Panel Interview and Discussion
  • Session Three – Building an action plan to respond to the call of 1 Tim. 1:5

In addition to these talks, several brothers will share personal testimonies. We will sing, pray, consider personally, and discuss in smaller groups.

Of course, this is a men’s True Grit Weekend. And so, our fellowship will extend to meals, competitive sports, board games, and general merriment.
