Do you know what it means to be a "real" man? Unfortunately, the perception of what a real man looks like is distorted by society's norms. Fortunately, the truth can be found in God's blueprint for a biblical man. Men's Fraternity is an opportunity to seek God's plan for manhood and to learn how to live a life of authentic manhood as modeled by Jesus Christ and directed by the Word of God.

Stepping Up 

Tuesdays beginning January 8 / 6 a.m. / Fellowship Hall

courageous, intentional manhood. Men will

Learn practical strategies to move through these steps. Hear how a man is designed to relate to God. Learn what it means to leave a defining legacy. Be inspired and encouraged to step up to be the man God has designed you to be.  


Men's Fraternity Year 1:
The Quest for Authentic Manhood 

Tuesdays beginning September 11 / 6:30 p.m. / Valley Cafe
Led by Pastor Jay
Cost: $25  

/files/Ministry Documents/Adult/Mens Ministry/mensfraternityc-logo-crop.jpgThe Quest for Authentic Manhood is the original curriculum in the Men's Fraternity series. This 24-session series helps men understand their masculine identity and shows them how to make the pursuit of God's design of authentic manhood as a lifelong priority woven into the fabric of their everyday lives.

The Quest for Authentic Manhood sets out to answer some questions universal to men:

> What makes a man a real man?
> How and when does one become a real man?
> What holds men back from their true masculine identity?
> How does authentic manhood express itself today?
