Changing Our World One Man At A Time.
"If we walk in the light as he is in the light..."
1 John 1:7
This week we be starting a new study as we go back to “the beginning” – Genesis. There is no story in world history that is better known, and yet not really understood or even desired to be understood. Most dismiss it as mythology. Yet, Jesus our Lord and Savior did not. He believed that it happened as it was written, and the Genesis narrative was often referred by many other writers of the Scriptures as factual. Why does God want us to know these things about the beginning of the world? Why does He want us to know the things He tells us about the end of the world as we know it? God has a purpose and a plan that gives meaning to our lives, and I believe Genesis will help us understand that.
We will be back to meeting at our old location (Hill Point), which is now known as “CrossWay NorthShore Church” for those that will wish to attend in person. I am copying here what I wrote in my last email about your choices of meeting:
“Option #1: Meeting at our same place & time in-person at “socially distanced tables”. We will have coffee, but it is suggested you may want to bring your own cup (and donut, as we will not be serving donuts right, for the time being.)
Option #2: A Zoom session where we will try and hook up the speaker and those who are either unable, or do not feel comfortable meeting in person can participate by listening to the speaker (via Zoom) and then all those who are on the Zoom call would then be assigned to break-out rooms while the in-person men would be discussing at their tables. Chris Decker will be leading.
I agree with what the mayor of Mequon suggested, “I agree that adults should be able to make their own decisions. I do not support laws that protect people from themselves (we have too many of them).”, however, if you want to come and have some concerns you should probably wear an N95 mask, as it will help protect you from those that do not wear a mask.
We are never going to please everyone, so we are trying to be flexible.”
Suggested Questions for Discussion
1.) Why do you God put the tree of the knowledge of good & evil in the garden?
2.) Why do you think woman was made out of man? Why do think God thought man needed a helpmate?
3.) Talk about shame. Have you ever lived with shame? What has caused you feel it in the past. How was it relieved?
Current Study Program
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 then 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. Please send your request to Neil DeCloux at firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
