Great Friday study on tap this week, gentlemen! If you’re a fan of the Halls of Justice, then this is the fellowship for you this week!
We’re up to Session 4 of our study: “Fight for What’s Right“. For homework, follow Session 4 in the Study Guide AND read chapter 9 of the main book. Get ready to confront evil….pursue justice….and love mercy!
I’m having flashbacks to the days of waking up on Saturday mornings and watching the Super Friends cartoon show. Anyone else having the same thoughts….or am I really dating myself now??
See you in fellowship this Friday. Gather at 7:30 am. I’ll lead our discussion this week starting at 7:45 am.
BAM! POW! SLAM! KA-POW!
After a long Spring Break and Easter celebration, we’re back to our study of The Resolution for Men. This week’s session is number three….and focuses on how fathers are “role” models in all they we do for our children. Our kids don’t just physically resemble their parents, but they often develop habits similar to their parents or siblings.
This week’s lesson pays special focus on our responsibilities as fathers in how we teach them to honor authority and live responsibly. Does this happen immediately? Most certainly NOT…more of a long, steady burn. But persistence over time will pay off huge dividends in the attitudes of our children….and our lives too!
Read Sesson 3 in the study guide as you prepare for this week’s FMMF. Then, your reading assignment from the main book is Chapters 7-8….approximately 30 pages!
Jason Schubert will lead the group this week.
Gather at 7:30 am, as always. Jason will launch into the lesson at 7:45 am.
But Mary stood outside the tomb weeping. As she wept, she knelt to look into the tomb and saw two angels sitting there, dressed in white, one at the head, the other at the foot of where Jesus’ body had been laid. They said to her, “Woman, why do you weep?”
“They took my Master,” she said, “and I don’t know where they put him.” After she said this, she turned away and saw Jesus standing there. But she didn’t recognize him.
Jesus spoke to her, “Woman, why do you weep? Who are you looking for?”
She, thinking that he was the gardener, said, “Mister, if you took him, tell me where you put him so I can care for him.”
Jesus said, “Mary.”
Turning to face him, she said in Hebrew, “Rabboni!” meaning “Teacher!”
Jesus said, “Don’t cling to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. Go to my brothers and tell them, ‘I ascend to my Father and your Father, my God and your God.’
John 20:11-17, The Message (MSG)
FMMF Charlotte returns next Friday, 4/21. Happy Easter everyone!
One session down….seven to go!
Now, before that sounds too daunting of a task, consider that this series is designed for “men”….and, perhaps just speaking as your’s truly, the reading assignment are bite-size portions!
Our assignment this week is to tackle Session 2 in the Study Guide AND Chapter 6 of the main book. My recommendation is that you read the Study Guide first as it will help you better understand the book’s reading. Just my two cents……!
If you don’t have the Study Guide, you can pick one up locally at Lifeway Christian Bookstores. Closest one is near Carolina Place Mall right next to the Home Depot store. Call ahead of time to make sure they have the Study Guide in stock.
We’re all bringing our “man cards” this week as we honestly look at the resolutions around marriage, honoring our wives, and being a man of your word.
Heavy stuff….and that’s why you need your man cards!
How ’bout them Dodgers…..??!!
See you on Friday. Bring your mug if you want coffee.
Lastly, quick reminder that we won’t be meeting on NEXT Friday, April 14th. Besides it being public schools spring break in Charlotte, it’s also GOOD FRIDAY as we lean forward in celebration of the Resurrection.
