Men’s Ministry

Men’s Ministry

Men’s ministry provides ongoing opportunities and events from the golf course to small group gatherings. Providing space for men to process the complex issues of our lives through the lens of a faith centered on the way of Jesus is a priority for our community. We welcome men of all backgrounds and life-stages to join us.

    This men’s large group gathering is a great place to connect or reconnect with other men over good food in a casual atmosphere where you might even find a football game on the screen and a friendly game of bags happening in the corner. In addition, each month we have compelling interviews with other men to help glean practical inspiration for the cross-section of life and faith.

    February 15 | It's taco Thursday! After dinner we’ll have an interactive conversation on the practice of Lent and how it's helpful and relevant for our lives today. 

    Upcoming Third Thursday Eats Events:

    March 21 | Join us for soup and sandwiches and an interview with Dan Meyer, Lead Pastor at Christ Church. 

    April 18 | It's Chili Fest at Christ Church!  Our interview session this evening features Dr. Tom Nutter the Chief Behavioral Health Officer for Cook County.

     

    May 16 | We're getting the grill out for burgers and such! We'll be joined by Dave Bianchin, a Luthier, or guitar craftsman for us less refined folks.

We recommend Rooted as a great first step to getting involved in small group life. Former Rooted participants have hailed this as one of the best experiences on their faith journey.

    Because Rooted is such a unique and immersive experience, we suggest reading through the Rooted: What You Need to Know section below.
