In Mark 2 it seems Jesus keeps saying the unexpected or the doing the inappropriate. It appears our religion can sometimes stymie our relationship. We too can be like the Pharisees who wanted to put God in a box of their own making, but Jesus does not live and will not live that way. He explains the Scriptures in the way God intends them to be lived out. He expects us to forgive the unforgivable and accept the unacceptable. He really does desire to set the captives free. The law was given to bring freedom and not to enslave us, and His commandments are never burdensome. This Saturday Dennis Dern will be leading us as we look beyond the glass darkly we are prone to see through.
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 7 members:
- Greg Bennett
- Michael Casey
- Richard Cobb
- Chris Decker
- Stan Lind
- Sandy Swartzberg
- Stosh Tybinko
- Dennis Dern*
- Henry van Oudenaren *
