Old Covenant, New Covenant, law and grace, Jesus our High Priest – these are all terms and phrases that are bandied about by Christians as part of our lexicon, but do you ever really ponder and mediate upon their magnificence and your Fathers love for you. They are all reflective of His reaching out to you first, to fulfill His loving desire to restore you to relationship with Him. Hebrews chapter 8 when you read it slowly, and with the Spirit will change your attitude and appreciation for Jesus, who in the fullness of time was sent to save you. Chapter 8 refocuses our attention NOT on the things that pass away, but on the ONE who is permanent and eternal. Sandy Swartzberg will be reminding us this Saturday to focus on Jesus. Abundant life is a life that continues to trust and focus on Him, the alternative is or will be a miserable life.
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 *
