"Dare to Love Like Christ" Meets Weekly thru 4/5

 

"Bible and Beer at Ben's" for 2020 is back through April 5. This year's study will be "Dare to Love Like Christ." Prepare to be seriously challenged as we use the book The Love Dare as a starting point to work our way through 1 Corinthians 13-- the famous chapter on 'love'-- and see what it actually demands of you, in practice. Please note: even though Fireproof and the accompanying book, The Love Dare, were directed toward married men, our focus will go far beyond romantic relationships. Whether you're young or old, single or married, it will truly push you to see what it means to be "Christlike" toward the people in your life. 

Purchasing the book is not required in order to take part in this study. Definitely bring your Bible, however.

We meet weekly through Palm Sunday. Dinner is at 6 PM and Bible study from 6:30 to 8 PM. There is no charge for the meal. However, you'll have the opportunity to sign up to help provide food for a future date. Join us as we prepare our hearts for a joyous Easter.

Support Lutheran Hour Ministries

The LLL will be continuing their tradition of hosting Lenten dinners before each of our midweek Lenten services. These delicious meals will be served each Wednesday from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. in the school gym. The monies raised will support the many ways that Lutheran Hour Ministries is reaching out to the world with the Gospel, including their weekly broadcast of the Lutheran Hour, and many others that go on daily right here in Michigan, across the country, and around the world. 

Please check the bulletin each week to find out the menu for the following Wednesday.

Coming in February— Man Up!

We’re Calling On You to ‘Man Up!’

nullWe have a new Bible Study for men coming up starting in February: Man Up!

Based on the book by Pastor Jeff Hemmer, we’ll dig deeper into what God intends for us as men.

Don’t worry— this is not your wife’s book club. We’ll be using some interesting activities (nothing embarrassing, I promise!) to illustrate some of the main points from the book.

In these six sessions, starting February 11, we'll look at what it means to be a man from the perspective of God's Word, what's standing in our way, and, most importantly, we'll turn our attention to Jesus Christ.

A Little More About the Book:

What does it mean to be a man? Sacrifice.

Man Up! doesn't tell you to take down the feminists or reclaim your God-given role and rights. Real masculinity starts with giving of yourself for the good of those around you and in your care. It's counter-cultural—and it's exactly how God designed biblical manhood.

This book is a call to fix your eyes and your hope on the Man up on the cross and to find in His selfless sacrifice the perfect example for manliness in our self-indulgent, self-centered society. That's where Man Up! really stands out in the crowd. Don't pick up these pages expecting to find an ideal man you should strive to be. This book is anchored in a different ideal. In the person of Jesus Christ, God became man. What Adam lost in his rebellion, Jesus restored in His Incarnation. Jesus is the perfect man. His example sets the paradigm for perfect masculinity. But more importantly, His sacrifice obtains forgiveness and mercy for the rest of us men who are bound to fail in this God-given task to be good men.

Men in all stages of life will appreciate this refreshing perspective—whether you're searching for footing in this crazy culture, seeking a godly relationship with your wife, or looking for guidance on raising children.
