This summer, our elders want to provide a few simple opportunities for men to connect around intentional discipleship materials. We will offer four reading groups, meeting twice per month in the evening to discuss a book on discipleship that has been particularly impactful for one of our elders. See the list below and sign up for the time/topic you are interested in.
- Jay Horne: Men of Courage, by Larry Crabb. 2nd & 4th Wednesdays in North Dallas.
"Men today have locked horns with their toughest issue: reclaiming the full potential of manhood. Bestselling author Dr. Larry Crabb asks, What gives manhood definition and meaning?"
- Jim Pocta: The Cry of the Soul, by Dan Allender and Tremper Longman. 2nd & 4th Thursdays in Richardson.
"All emotion―whether positive or negative―can give us a glimpse of the true nature of God. We want to control our negative emotions and dark desires. God wants us to recognize them as the cry of our soul to be made right with Him."
- Alex Dean: Ordinary, by Michael Horton. Select Thursdays in Lake Highlands.
"Horton holds out the beauty of the ordinary means of grace, over against the notion that Christian growth is something extraordinary, or something we have to attain by getting to a whole new level. This book is great for over-achievers and for those who may be discouraged by the slowness and ordinary-ness of sanctification."
- Colin Peters: Thoughts for Young Men, by J.C. Ryle. Tuesdays in Lake Highlands
This study is aimed at dads with teenage and young adult sons. "Thoughts for Young Men is practical, spiritual, and lively. Abounding in advice and good sense, it is still as relevant and helpful in the twenty-first century as it was when it was first published in 1865."
Hang tight while we look up scheduled events...
