In Galatians 2:21 Paul states. “I do not nullify the grace of God, for if righteousness comes through the Law, then Christ died needlessly.” The death of Christ on the cross was essential for our salvation. It is ironic how often the creature says to his Creator, “I do not like your plan and I have a better plan” Yet the Creator responds with, “"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the LORD. Perhaps we simply do not really get or understand the holiness of God and how abhorrent sin really is to a Holy God. We do not take seriously Hebrews 9:22, and we miss the need of the perfect Lamb of God. We tend to miss the significance of the sacrificial love of God that allows us to be reconciled to Him. This Saturday Chris Decker will be leading us as he refreshes us with the Word of God.
To join with other men from the North Shore of Milwaukee and beyond who choose to follow Jesus Christ in obedience to His call to serve Him, honor Him, learn of Him and share His message of grace with other men. FaithWalkers seeks to shape and hone men into men of spiritual influence.
A formal bible study is conducted each week that focuses on Biblical truth and how these truths may be applied to daily living in the market place. Men gather in large and small groups to interact around the studies that are presented by a lay member-leader.
Men from Faithwalkers volunteer to respond to specific prayer needs communicated through internet systems. A team of more than seventy men is committed to being able to receive electronic messages that seek prayer support around a specific request.
Faithwalkers is led by a board of laymen chaired by Greg Bennett. Their role is to determine the ministry goals, teaching topics and schedules, plan special events, and oversee all programs activities.
The Board is made up of the following members:
- Greg Bennett
- Michael Casey
- Richard Cobb
- Chris Decker
- Dan Fischer
- Stan Lind
- Sandy Swartzberg
- Tadd Trier
- Stosh Tybinko
- Dennis Dern*
- Henry van Oudenaren *
