Men of all ages of the church gather for movies, guy trips, cook-outs, service projects, and study our faith and what it means to be a Christian man. Read up below to see what's coming up next. If you are interested in getting involved contact Pastor Craig at email@example.com
Family Camping June 16-17
We've reserved a number of tent sites at Jellystone Park in Monticello (about a one hour northeast of Cedar Rapids) along the Maquoketa River with tons of family friendly things to do! Join us for s’mores at Pr. Craig’s cabin after dark and a one-of-a-kind outdoor worship on Sunday morning. Cost is $30 or $35 (electric). You may also bring your camper and hook up for $45.
RSVP in two minutes today to your right.
Meet The Guy Squad
Our 2018 Guy Squad: L-R Josh Hetrick, Jason Truitt, Bubba Sinnott, Mark Aiels, Aaron Ashby, Dan Wolfe, Chris Carstensen, Andy Osterkamp, and Pr. Craig Brown. Not pictured is Brad Wegmann, Troy Christiansen, and Dustin Mallie.
While not a Guy Squad event, we know this church sanctioned mission trip will appeal to many guys. Check out the details here.
Men from our church served a white glove women's brunch before Mother's Day weekend to more than 100 women in our church twice over the last three years. We're planning a similar event in 2018 with a tremendous speaker who has mentored hundreds of young women in Eastern Iowa. Stay tuned!
Star Wars Celebration
We gathered in December 2015 to dissect scripture and movie clips detailing the fall of Anakin Skywalker and his redemption through his son, Luke, much like the fall of humanity and our redemption through the work on the cross through God’s son, Christ.
Men's Hockey Night
We had a fun night cheering on the Rough Riders in January of 2017. We filled a luxury box with 20 guys from church and friends, shared a few adult beverages, and built some friendships.
Amateur Pool Night April 5
The Guy Squad is hosting an amateur pool night (Hey, none of us are any good either!) at 7:30-9 p.m. on Thursday, April 5 at Fat Wally's one the corner of 2nd Ave & 5th St (across from KCRG). Cost is $10. Must be over 21.
A generous member provided a Riverside Resort golf, hotel, and buffet prize package for one lucky player. Wow! How can you say no to that? Again, this is just for fun. Please just show up and join us!
Our men's ministry team, known as the "Guy Squad," meets every-other month to plan movie nights, fun trips, book studies, and service projects. We intentionally try to engage men in their 20's, 30's, and 40's who traditionally haven't had a strong interest in church and meet them on their level.
