Pursuing life together
Men, life is too hard to go it alone. You don’t need to! In growing numbers, men are coming together to talk about their faith, their lives, their futures, and how they can have an impact on their spheres of influence. If you’re looking for laughter, honesty, enthusiasm, hope, or change, please attend a Grace Men event.
You will have a tremendous opportunity to build friendships, have some laughs, get at some real stuff, and connect your faith in your everyday life. Join us to go a step further in your life as a man.
SPRING Session 20234
LURES OF THE HEART…
Have you ever wondered why you are drawn to certain things so powerfully? Or why certain things seem to have an inordinate amount of sway on your actions or reactions? The centrality and health of our hearts beating within our chest goes without stating. After all, poor “heart health” is the leading cause of death for mankind. But have you ever considered that there might be more going on than we are aware of?
For centuries the “Heart” has been understood to be more than simply an organ that pumps blood throughout our bodies to keep us alive. It also has been understood to be the point of origin for all we do, think, desire, and feel. In fact, in the ancient text of scripture we are told “above everything else” we do in our lives, we need to guard our hearts! Obviously, something of utmost importance is going on inside all of us that we need to give significant attention to. Unfortunately, with the pace of life we are used to living we can end up doing anything but “guarding” our hearts. In fact, we may not even have a clue as to what this may mean. Either way…..If this insight is a reality we’d be wise to pay attention to it. The beauty, quality, and depth of our relationships and lives depends on it. Not to mention we’d understand ourselves a lot better.
If you’re interested in taking a deeper dive to understand what this amazing word “Heart” means, how it is meant to flourish, and the things that vie for its affection then this Spring Ironmen session is for you! We’ll enjoy an 8-week session where weekly you’ll be challenged, encouraged, and inspired in a large group context with a small group experience built in. Together we’ll enjoy discovering what it is that we are to guard and why we need to value it above all else.
The Winter session begins:
Monday Evening Group runs April 8 – June 3 meeting (No meeting May 27) at 7-8:30 PM at GFC.
Thursday Morning Group runs April 11 – May 30 meeting at 6:15-7:45 AM at GFC.
