Men’s Ministry

We look at 1 Timothy 6:11 and find that God wants man to pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness and gentleness. Our goal here in our Abundant Life Men’s Ministry is to bring men together for the sole purpose of building that solid foundation based upon Scripture through prayer, Bible study and discipleship.
  • Men’s Small Group – Join us on the 1st & 3rd Tuesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. The group meets in the main church building . If you have questions about the group, or are interested in attending, let us know ! Or feel free to just show up, all are welcome! The men are studying the 6 session DVD study, Life Changing Prayer by Pastor Jim Cymbala.
  • Men’s Breakfast – 8:00 – 9:15 a.m. on the 3rd Saturdays of each month beginning Saturday, October 20.

    Trust in The Lord

    It’s simple. It’s short. Yet it’s incredibly powerful. Proverbs 3:5-6 is one of the most familiar passages in the Bible–with good reason. It sets forth a life-changing truth that is worthy of our attention. Spend three minutes reading this article, and see if you agree.

    Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
    In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

    Trust in the Lord.

    It starts with trust. Any real relationship has to start with some level of trust. It’s the only way a friendship will endure. It’s the only way a marriage will work out. It’s the simple reason why an employer hires workers, or why the workers stay employed. It’s all about trust. Trust in the Lord, however, takes on an entirely new dimension. This is our trust in an eternal, all-powerful, all-wise, all-loving God. He is worthy of our trust. The trust is important, not just because of who God is, but because of the way in which we must trust him: with all your heart. It involves every fiber of your being. That’s the kind of trust we can have in God–a complete, unshakable, deep, abiding trust.
