Men's Month Celebration

Theme:  “Men Doing God’s Good Works”

Ephesian 2:10: ” For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”

October 1- 31 – “Garments of Hope”
Our annual campaign to collect mens under garments for the Men’s Shelter on Statesville Avenue.  We are asking you to purchase new men’s undergarments and place them in the containers located on the lower East Plaza and Beatties Ford Road exits.  Thank you in advance for your donations.

October 1 – 31 – “Give God a High 5
Romans 12:1 tells us to “present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.”  With this scripture in mind, we are asking everyone but particularly men to “Give God a High 5” by taking an additional 5 hours throughout October getting closer to God.  That’s only an extra 10 minutes a day!   You can read scripture; meditate; pray; attend Sunday School; attend 1 of the Bible Studies; join a ministry or whatever you choose to do to give God 5 additional hours during October.
