“Our Father” – 2017 Men’s Fall Retreat
Join us for our Men’s Fall Retreat from September 22nd, at 6:00 p.m. through September 24th, at 10:30 a.m. at Brookhaven Christian Retreat Center near Tyler, TX. We have invited Dr. Scott Keith as our guest speaker. Our theme is “Our Father”. Dr. Keith’s talks will deal with the way fathers and men, and the subject of fatherhood and masculinity, are treated in modern culture. Dr. Keith brings his experience with family, students, great mentors and friends to bear on this subject which is crying out for attention. Equally, he brings his Christian faith, a scholarly eye for detail, an ear for story along on the journey and he works with the reader to navigate a path to a better country where the Father blesses His children and is honored. But, most of all he points to Christ and how he loves his creation, and how his model of masculinity and grace is a perfect lens in which we can orient ourselves in this modern culture.
- The Need for Strong Men and Good Fathers
- The Picture of Masculinity
- On Being Dad
- The Magic Kingdom
Cost: $148* (includes sleeping accommodations, all meals on Saturday, breakfast on Sunday, an event t-shirt, and Dr. Keith’s book). *Scholarships are available. Please contact Pastor Mark for more details.Click Here for More Info and to Register
Men’s Monthly DTX Gathering
Our Men’s Monthly DTX gathering is taking the summer off. We will announce in the months to come when we will start up again. Enjoy your summer!
When: Second Wednesday of each month, from 6:30-8:00 p.m.
Where: Water’s Edge Church
What: We will be walking through the book Questioning Evangelism. Each month we will gather to eat together and discuss a chapter from the book.
Questioning Evangelism is a simple and great tool that equips followers of Jesus to learn how to engage others in conversations about Jesus by using personal and probing dialogue. Each week will be a stand alone lesson on a chapter, so you won’t be left in the dark if you have to miss a week. We will look at topics such as:
- Why are Christians so intolerant?
- If God is good, why did he allow 9/11 happen?
- How is Christianity the only way?
This will be a great time to grow as disciples and strengthen friendships while we dive into the hard questions that your friends may be asking you, or that you may even have yourself. We encourage you to get your own copy of the book beforehand. We will have copies available for purchase each week for $12.
We will provide pizza and soft drinks each week. You are more than welcome to bring your own food. Please contact Pastor Mark with any questions.
