I thought I’d share a little bit about what is going on with the men’s ministry around Harvest.
The men’s ministry at Harvest is a ministry that I help lead with Jeff Isom. We’ve been working together for a couple of years, planning and preparing events for the men of our church.
When we plan an event, we try to make sure our activities fit into one of these buckets:
- Outreach – something to bring an unchurch friend to
- Fellowship – getting to know the other men from Harvest
- Discipleship – growing in Christ together
- Service – working toward a common goal
I wanted to highlight two of the things that are coming up soon for the men of Harvest.
First, we are getting ready to start another batch of men’s small groups at the end of April, and this falls into the category of Discipleship. We are going to go through the book Every Man a Warrior. The book covers some of the basic principles of becoming a student of the Word: regular Bible reading, prayer with purpose, and scripture memory. If you feel like you could be better at any of these disciplines, I think you should consider joining us through this book. It’s made a huge impact on a number of men in the church, and I think you’d really enjoy it!
Second, we are going to The Harbor again on April 1 for our service event. Once each month, a group of men go to The Harbor – a ministry of Portland rescue mission – to prepare and serve dinner to the men who live there. The Harbor is an awesome ministry, and it’s really cool to see familiar faces every time I go. We arrive at 4:45 and leave around 7. During that time, we make dinner, meet the guys who live there, and fellowship with them while eating. It’s a really fantastic ministry, and I’d encourage you to read a little bit more about it here.
If you’ve been wondering about what to do or where to get plugged in, I’d love to hear from you. Shoot me an email or meet me in the foyer on Sunday morning. I’d love to share a little bit more about what we’ve got going on around here!
