Men of Iron

Men of Iron

“As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.”

Proverbs 27:17

Mission Statement

Scripture tells us that we are all fallen, open to temptation, and capable of great sin. Therefore, our men can benefit spiritually from inviting others to hold us accountable.

James 5:16 “Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.”

The goal of our Men of Iron Ministry is for our men to grow in their faith, find communal fellowship and friendships, share each other’s burdens, and build each other up. Men of Iron has four facets:

Prayer Groups

Groups of men (very small), who meet regularly to share with one another, encourage each other, pray for each other and hold each other accountable (led by Elders and Deacons).

Breakfast

Men of Iron Breakfast: Please join us for our monthly Men of Iron Breakfast starting on September 3 at 8:00 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall.  This is a wonderful time of food, fellowship, study, and prayer as Christian men.  As Proverbs 27:17 says, "Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another."

This year, we will be reading two books: "A Faith Worth Sharing" by C. John Miller and "The Gospel and Personal Evangelism" by Mark Dever.  The total cost for both books is $20.  Please sign up and submit your $20 in the envelope on the back table on Sunday mornings.

The dates for the 2016-2017 year are:

2016: Sept 3rd, Oct 1st, Nov 5th, Dec 3rd
2017: Jan 7th, Feb 4th, Mar 4th, Apr 1st, May 6th

Dinner & Devotion

Every three to four months, the men in our church are invited to attend a night of great food and group study. Our past meals have included Steak Night, Chili Night, Wings and Fries Night, and BBQ Night. Following each meal is a devotion, led by one of our elders, that encourages our men to grow in their faith.

Special Events

Throughout the year, our men are invited to attend several fellowship events, such as a weekend retreat (Aug 26-28th, 2016) bowling, white water rafting, a biking trip down the Virginia Creeper Trail, a Charlotte Knight’s game, an annual golf event, and other events.
