Church of the Open Door

Men’s Ministries

Our ministry to men focuses on the unique strengths, and opportunities that men have to influence their work, home and church environments. This ministry provides an opportunity for men to socialize, develop community with one another, and reflect on themselves and their work in regard to Biblical truths, through prayer and Bible studies, monthly men’s breakfasts, church workday activities, retreats and other special events.

Goals

  • Reaching men for Christ
  • Helping them grow spiritually
  • Build them up & mobilize them for service in God’s kingdom
  • Develop deeper relationships with other men
  • Transforming men into the image of the Master

Prayer & Bible Studies

These small group studies focus on developing relationships with God and one another. Studies include; spiritual leadership development; discipleship; our role and responsibility as spiritual leaders in the home, workplace, and in the church; and accountability.

Saturday Morning Bible Study Starting again in September

Men’s Bible Study
Saturday mornings, 8:00-10:00 a.m.

The Gospel According to Paul – Our study is of John MacArthur’s book and we will begin in September. From master expositor and Bible teacher John MacArthur comes a revelatory exploration of what the apostle Paul actually taught about the good news of Jesus. In his characteristically candid and pastoral style, MacArthur helps readers obtain a right understanding of the gospel given to us by the Lord—the very same gospel that was put into the mouths and the pens of the apostles, including Paul, and that has been preached for the past 2,000 years—so that it may be proclaimed to the world, as has been commanded. This new exposition not only highlights key passages in Paul’s epistles, examining them verse-by-verse, but also unpacks critical lessons regarding the essence, elements, relevancy, and application of the gospel for today’s disciples. Men, if you are interested in growing in your faith, understanding of the Bible, and relationships with other men, join us most Saturdays starting in September from 8:00 – 10:00 AM in the Blue Room. For more information, or to join, please contact the church office.

Men’s Fellowship Breakfasts

Will start again in the fall. A unique opportunity to meet together with other men to develop relationships, share testimonies, sing, and hear from a variety of guest speakers who inspire, challenge, and touch the hearts of men. A great setting to invite a neighbor, friend, or co-worker to connect with other men and to hear a message of God’s love at work in and through the lives of men.

Men’s Retreat will be October 27-29
The theme is “Receiving and Extending Forgiveness: From Forgiven to Forgiving.” The theme verse is, , “Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.” More information will be available in the fall. It will be held at Camp Calvary, 48 New Schaefferstown Rd, Bernville, PA 19506.
