All men are invited to participate in the Men’s Group.  It usually meets once a month (the third Monday at 7pm) to discuss topics of interest to Christian men.  Very often the group uses materials provided by Lutheran Hour Ministries to supplement the discussion.  The setting is relaxed and informal, but thought-provoking and spiritually enriching.  Our Director of Christian Education, Dave Erickson, leads the group.

The Men’s Group will meet in the fellowship hall on Monday, October 18 at 7pm.  The men will begin to unpack a study by Dr. Dale Meyer titled “Love People and Problems.” 

As Christians we are born again to a living hope. This truth informs all we are and do in Jesus’ name. Central to what we do is love people-and their problems. In other words, we embrace those in need around us, resisting the urge to retreat from our neighborhoods and communities. Instead, we seek to follow Jesus’ example of loving others and see where God leads us.

Just as Jesus asked Peter three times, “Do you love Me?” so the Savior asks us as well. As God’s people, our life together with others should mirror Jesus’ concern for them, his willingness to go the distance for them. For sure, loving difficult people and addressing tough problems is not the way the world loves, but it’s Christ’s way-and following in his way, full of faith and hope, we love God by loving our neighbors.
