Opportunities for Connection in 2022


Let’s make 2022 the year of CONNECTION. 

To grow in Christlikeness, we must prioritize connecting with the Lord and other men.  Everyone is busy, and life is full, but neglecting to spend time in the Word and in fellowship with other men will leave you feeling hollow and burdened.  Men, we need each other.  Take a few minutes to consider the following opportunities to connect and register today.    

Thursday Morning Men: Life Lessons from the Warrior Poet

We are launching a new weekly Bible study on the life of David on January 20. The man after God’s own heart, but far from perfect, David lived a fascinating life.  It’s a life of incredible victories and soul-crushing decisions and defeats that all men should learn from.  The morning includes large group worship and teaching, followed by small group discussion.  Register HERE.

Living Lionhearted Tuesday Night Study | 7:00-8:30pm | C3 Church

Perhaps​ now more than ever, men need a clear understanding of what biblical manhood looks like.  Living Lionhearted is Pastor Mike’s vision of manhood that he developed for himself and his son over many years.  Now it’s packaged as a journal with weekly reading and questions for reflection and discussion.  Men will gather in person off-site for teaching and small group discussion for this 10-week study.  Register HERE.

Forged | January 22 | Kampfe Farm

Forged is a ministry for teen boys and dads.  We are “Shaping Men for Life” as we gather to learn valuable life skills.  The first in a series of events, this one focuses on chopping wood, making kindling, and building the perfect campfire.  We’ll close with a short devotional​ and dinner cooked over a fire.​ Teens are welcome with or without their dad.  Register HERE.

Men’s Breakfast | January 29

We’re bringing the breakfast back!  Connect with other men, enjoy a great meal and hear an encouraging word from Pastor Mike.  Register HERE.
