Zoom has added better encryption to make our meetings even safer. But that means that if you are using the Zoom app (using Zoom on a phone or tablet), you must install the upgrade by May 30. Older versions of Zoom will not be supported after that. To upgrade and see more information, go to zoom.us/download. The update is alsoavailable from the Apple store or Google Play. The same link will provide updates for desktops or laptops. Or, the update will automatically launch when you try to use Zoom on a computer or laptop. Please allow a few extra minutes before your meeting for the update.
As the situation with COVID-19 continues to unfold, we as a church want to do our part. Governor DeSantis recommended that group gatherings be suspended as a means to prevent any spread of this potentially harmful virus. As such, we have moved Men's Ministry online. If you have attended these ministries in the past, watch for an email invitation to join Zoom. If you are visiting our groups or events for the first time, please register and we will send you the Zoom link for that session.
Zoom is free. It allows groups of people to connect over the internet using the microphone and camera on your device. You can connect using your computer, laptop, tablet, or phone. You will need internet access, a camera and a microphone (built in to most phones, tablets, laptops and some newer computers). From your computer or laptop, simply click on the Zoom link. Follow the instructions on the screen. For a phone or tablet, you will need to download the "ZOOM Cloud Meetings" app and then you will be able to click on the link to launch Zoom. Please log in 10 minutes early to make sure everything is working properly. This will also help minimize interruptions once the group has started.
We encourage you to participate in online activities and stay connected as best you can. If you need assistance connecting, please contact your leader or .

Monday Night Men's
The Monday Night Men's Group is a great place to develop some strong friendships with some other men. We are learning together through biblical truth and each other's experiences how to engage our faith in our day to day life. You will experience a welcoming group of men, a time of fellowship, an engaging teaching and a time of discussion with other men just like you. There is a sense of openness that is experienced through open and honest dialogue that is hard to find elsewhere. So, come as you are. Nothing to purchase. If you have a Bible, let's open it together. If you don't have a Bible, we would be happy to help you get one.
Join us Monday, August 24 @ 7pm for our fall kickoff!

Wednesday Night Men's
Real Life Real Men! We are striving to become Christ-followers together, by focusing our surrendered lives to God. We have created a safe environment for men to come and see how we can grow together in our faith.
Men's Bible Study provides a place to get to know other men, allow them to know you, and to learn more about God through His Word. This season, we will look at the story of Jesus Christ through the eyes of Mark. Mark's gospel presents Jesus as King and Savior of the world. Mark's hope was to strengthen the faith of the reader and to teach what it meant to be a disciple of Jesus.
Join us Wednesday, August 26 @ 6:30pm for our fall kickoff! Childcare is available by making a reservation no later than Tuesday at noon. To make a reservation, email your name, your child's first name and "Wednesday Night Men's Ministry" to
