Men's Ministry


I want to let you know that we will be starting meets every second and fourth Thursdays of every month at 6 am and 7 pm, respectively, in on Zoom.

Over the years, we have had the privilege of allowing the following books to shape our understanding of God, the Gospel, and our ongoing walk with him:  

  • Ten Questions to Diagnose Your Spiritual Health by Don Whitney
  • Everyone's A Theologian by R. C. Sproul
  • The Pursuit of Holiness by Jerry Bridges
  • The Practice of Godliness by Jerry Bridges
  • Church History 101 by Sinclair Ferguson, Joel Beeke & Michael Horton
  • Biblical Theology by Nick Roark & Robert Cline (9Marks)
  • The Imperfect Disciple by Jared C. Wilson
  • The Attributes of God by Arthur Pink
  • Tactics: A Game Plan for Discussing Your Christian Convictions by Greg Koukl

We will be kicking off a new study of the book: Delighting in the Trinity: An Introduction to the Christian Faith by Michael Reeves. This will be a helpful and practical study. The book is available in both paperback and Kindle formats from Amazon.

"This book, then, will simply be about growing in our enjoyment of God and seeing how God’s triune being makes all his ways beautiful. It is a chance to taste and see that the Lord is good, to have your heart won and yourself refreshed. For it is only when you grasp what it means for God to be a Trinity that you really sense the beauty, the overflowing kindness, the heart-grabbing loveliness of God."
