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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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. Deadline is May 31st! 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.
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 Class May 27
The force is strong with this one! Make plans to see "Solo: a Star Wars Story" in theaters Memorial Day Weekend then join Pr. Craig at 10:15 a.m. Sunday, May 27 in the chapel as he breaks down the new direction of Star Wars and how it might shine a light on what's happening with Christianity today.
This class is open to both men and women, however we wanted to make sure guys knew about it. May the Force be with you!
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.
Outsmart Your Smart Phone
Did you know smart phones are built to be addictive? Our new men's study will take you behind the science of how screens are built to hook us and offer the tools we need to rescue our businesses, our families, and our sanity. Grab a beer and join us 7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 21 at Parlor City for this 6-week study. You can pick up a book at church the weekend of May 19-20. Cost is $15.
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.
