Midweek Opportunities (Wednesday Night)

The Arena

Wednesdays | 6:30am in Conference Rm. | 6:30pm in Rm. 123

No matter where we are on the political spectrum, there is one point of agreement: We need good leaders. Whether in the church, government, or in the home, good leaders can help a culture thrive or contribute to its downfall. Thankfully, God is sovereign over it all, and His ultimate plan will not be thwarted.

The Old Testament book of Judges displays a revolving door of Israelite leaders and God’s sustaining of the Israelite nation in the midst of it. The Men of The Arena will examine an overview of this very relevant book. One of the main themes of Judges tells of Israel’s failure to honor God by keeping His commandments. This Old Testament book is named after the tribal leaders that guided the Israelites between the death of Joshua and before their first king, Saul.

Sadly, the book of tells a tale of spiritual and moral depravity among God’s people. Their sinfulness was so extensive that they were no different than the surrounding nations. There was a repeated cycle of sin, bondage, repentance, devotion, followed by a continuation of sin and bondage. This cycle of sin is unfortunately evident in the lives of many Christian men. In our study of Judges we seek to enhance the desire to break from this cycle of sin.

Rough Cut Men

April 27, 6-9:30pm | April 28, 8am-12pm

This is not a program, a Bible study, or a conference – it is a chance to get connected at gut level with a ‘battle buddy’, a ‘wingman’, or by adding a ‘guardrail’ in your life. Through Hollywood action movies, current events, Biblical truths, and personal testimonies, you will come away realizing the rough-cut men are not a finished product, but a work in progress.

Because we know that the effectiveness of impact in ministering to men is accomplished by 1-on-1 or 2-on-1 relationships, the church must be about the developing of men who are not only able to withstand the culture, but are also making other disciples of Jesus themselves. Most men are intimidated or embarrassed to talk frankly about what is going on in their lives (marriage, finances, job, health, pornography, etc.). Guys don’t really know anybody. They live in isolation, claiming: “I’m okay!”
