This week Greg Bennett will be introducing the narrative - the Book of Ruth. The Book of Ruth is one of the best and most memorable short stories you will read. It is story of ordinary life of someone who remains faithful to God when the world around them seems to be ignoring Yahweh and appears like it is going to hell in a handbasket. In Ruth we will see that God is faithful to his covenant and demonstrates his loving kindness even when we may not notice Him at work. Ruth will be an encouragement and a blessing to you as you better learn to notice the God who really is faithful and who never will forsake you, even in the worst of times. Ruth will help motivate you to daily seek and follow Him no matter your circumstances.
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
- Bruce Brunner
