Men's Book Club Resumes on Saturday, October 4

On Saturday, October 4, the Men's Book Club will continue their discussion of Francis Schaeffer's "Trilogy" - a collection of three of his most foundational books bound in one. For our October meeting, we'll be reading from The God Who is There, Section II., Chapters 1-5 (this is found on pgs. 51-90).

[Note: If you own The Complete Works of Francis Schaeffer, the page numbers for volume 1 are basically the same as the Trilogy. Feel free to read and bring either copy for our meetings.]

Come join us for a great time of fellowship and discussion as we learn about the intellectual and cultural climate of this present age and see how the Christian faith challenges the "wisdom of the world" so prevalent around us!

We continue to meet at the home of Bob and Adriana Reeves starting at 6:00pm.

Men of Christ Reformed Church - Save the Date of Saturday, October 11


The Christian Man, Church Office, and Spiritual Leadership

 

A Seminar for the Men of Christ Reformed Church

On the morning of Saturday, October 11, we will be holding a seminar covering the topics of church office and spiritual leadership. All men and their sons are encouraged to attend this time of education and fellowship.

Here is a blurb for the seminar:

What does God’s word say to men about their roles in the church and in the home?

Men tend to be driven and intentional about their work and interests. They study, train, ask questions, and strive to be successful workers and skilled at their hobbies. But Christian men often neglect to be as driven and intentional about the spiritual work to which they have been called, both as members of Christ’s church and as heads of their homes. Join us on the morning of Saturday, October 11, as we explore Christ’s call to leadership and consider how the gospel affects our lives as Christian men.

Schedule and Location TBA: More details to follow soon. For now, just block off your calendar and plan to join us for an encouraging and challanging discussion!
