Encouraging Men to Grow Spiritually
What We're About
The Men’s Ministry of Greater Lansing Assembly of God is committed to encouraging men to grow spiritually and to reach out to other men who do not attend our church. We do this by having a monthly Bible study, quarterly breakfast outreach meetings, and an annual retreat.
Monthly Men’s Bible Study & Fellowship
We meet on the 2nd Friday of the month for Bible study. A pastor or one of the men in the church leads us in a discussion of a topic that relates to our theme for the year. During Bible study, we spend time getting to know each other better, share praise reports and pray for individual and corporate needs. We believe we grow spiritually if we meet regularly to encourage each other [“As iron sharpens iron; so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend” Proverbs 27:7] and bear one another’s burden [“Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ” Galatians 6:2]. We encourage all men to join us for these meetings as the discussions are rich, practical and spiritually uplifting.
Men’s Fellowship Breakfast
We hold three to four breakfast outreach meetings per year on the third Saturdays in March, June, and November; in September we have a retreat for men or a breakfast outreach. At our breakfast meetings, we hear wonderful testimonies of God’s healing power, deliverances, provisions, restoration of relationships, etc in the lives of men in our church. We are encouraged by these testimonies because “there is no partiality with God” [Rom 2:11] – what He does in the life of one brother, He can do in the life of another. We also spend time in praise and worship, enjoy special music and a scrumptious breakfast.
In September each year, the men’s ministry at Greater Lansing First plans for a men’s retreat or marriage seminar/couple’s retreat often with other AG churches or affiliates. These meetings strengthen us spiritually and our families are enriched.
