Men's Breakfast

Men’s Ministries has a Breakfast on the last Saturday of each month in the Lebanon First Assembly Gym at 8:00 AM.  They share a time of devotions and fellowship. There is no charge, but donations are accepted. All are welcome!

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are disturbing statistics in the church world today that should be motivating us as men to dig deeper into God’s word, our prayer lives, and discipleship.

“Studies show that for every ten men in the average church:

  • 9 will have kids who leave the church
  • 8 will not find their jobs satisfying
  • 6 will pay monthly minimum on credit cards
  • 5 have a major problem with pornography
  • 4 will get divorced affecting 1,000,000 children each year
  • Only 1 will have a biblical worldview
  • All 10 will struggle to balance family & work

Research cited by Focus on the Family shows that when a mother comes to faith in Christ, the rest of the family follows her example 17% of the time.

When a father comes to faith in Christ, the rest of the family follows his example 93% of the time.”

(statistics from the website http://www.pcacdm.org/why-have-a-mens-ministry/)

People need to have a connection with others.  They need spiritual growth.  Sometimes they need advice on life’s tough issues.  People need each other.  Men’s ministry is working to provide that with Christ as the center of it all.

Our Men’s breakfast is a great way to connect with others.  It’s also a time when we can invite men to get together that may not be willing to come to a church service.  They might feel more at ease coming to a breakfast.  All men are welcome and we have many different types of men coming to our breakfasts from bikers to veterans.

No matter what type of men we are, we all should be striving to be what Jesus asked us to be in his sermon on the mount.

Matthew 5:13-16

13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if salt loses its flavor, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled on by people.

14 You are the light of the world. A city located on a hill cannot be hidden.

15 People do not light a lamp and put it under a basket but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house.

16 In the same way, let your light shine before people, so that they can see your good deeds and give honor to your Father in heaven.
