Men Under Construction Men (Mid-Late 60's) Meets in Room F-3
Led by: Boyd Coburn/Ray Wood
Our aim is to achieve a genuine growth in our Faith In Christ, in our Fellowship with Him and in our fellowship with one another. Genuine saving faith is a personal attachment to Christ, best thought of as a combination of two ideas, reliance on Christ and commitment to Him, Saving faith involves personally depending on the finished work of Christ's sacrifice as the only basis for forgiveness of sin and entrance into heaven. But saving faith is also a personal commitment of one's life to following Christ in obedience to His commands: “I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day” (2 Tim. 1:12). Those who have fellowship with Christ should enjoy fellowship with other believers. This fellowship ought to illustrate the very nature of God Himself (John 13:35; Eph. 5:1-2; I John 1:5-10).
Fishers of Men - Men (Early-Mid 60's) Meets in Room F-2
Led by: Walter Merritt/Glenn Lofton
