Iron men!

Proverbs 27:17 - "As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another."
That's the idea behind CBC's new men's ministry we're calling "Iron Men." As men, we've been taught we don't need anyone. It's a lie! As men we've been taught not to rely on anyone. It's a lie! As men, we've been told we can stand forever on our own. It's a lie! It's a frightening thing to consider how many men are confused about what manhood means. Our hope is that we can work that ought together under the banner of Christ. We're launching our new ministry on Sunday night, Nov 8 doing something most of us would do anyway - eat and watch the Cowboys play football! They're playing the Eagles that night on NBC. Although it wasn't my idea, I heartily endorsed it! We'll meet in the Fishin' Hole (the Youth Building). If you're not a Cowboy fan, you can play pool, ping-pong or foosball. Anyway you stack it, it's a great way to spend the evening. Join us that night as we lay the groundwork for the future of Iron Men. We've got the annual "Beast Feast" planned for early February with a special guest speaker scheduled for that! For now, however, plan to be with us on Nov 8 in the Fishin Hole after the evening worship service.
