Men

Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.

There are times to gather as the whole church and there are times to gather as men so the church can be stronger. We are in a unique time as Covid has impacted almost all aspects of our lives. We do not want that to prevent us from gathering as men. 

Men's Bible Studies

Synopsis of the 6 week study:
God has created men to have incredible strength. But today’s culture has hijacked masculinity, distorting strength into passivity and abuse.
In this 5-part video Bible study series, pastor Joby Martin invites men to embrace God’s definition of masculinity and to step into His calling upon their lives to wield their strength on behalf of others. God has designed men to be protectors, providers, and defenders. When men act like men, everyone flourishes.
We are offering the 6-week study Thursdays evenings in Dubuque and Saturday mornings in Peosta. The meetings will last for an hour and half. In it we will watch a 15-20 minute video and discuss what we learned as a group. 

Virtual Bible Study

One thing that we are doing beyond the groups starting this fall is group devotionals through the Bible app.  It is very low commitment, but it is a friendly reminder of our need for daily devotionals while providing a little bit of accountability and fostering community with people you don’t always get to talk to. If you didn’t know the Bible app could do this, it is a cool feature that lets you complete the plan like normal then adds a tab for the group to respond and share what they are learning.  Most plans are 10 days or less, but some like the one we are starting this week are longer, 15+ days.  The great thing is you can join or skip at your leisure and/or suggest future topics/plans.

We are starting a devotional on John this week since they will be starting this in Student Connect on Wednesday. We will move through it a lot faster as a daily devotional (24 days), but we will also revisit it once or twice throughout the year so we can engage with the youth of the church in a new way. We look forward to seeing anyone and everyone who wants to join.

We are reading the @YouVersion plan 'Journey Through John'. Check it  out HERE
