Men’s Purity group

Men, are you being prompted to make a change in your personal purity?

Are you discouraged that “trying better” and “praying more” doesn’t seem to be enough?

Are you carrying this burden on your own?

We would like to walk alongside you in grace and equip you with a new battle plan which includes “offense” AND “defense.”

We will arrange for you to have a 1:1 accountability partner along with participating in our group study.

Contact our confidential email to start your journey.

We will be meeting every other Monday at a home in Freeland at 7:00 pm.

Our new study is: Worthy of Her Trust: What You Need to Do to Rebuild Sexual Integrity and Win Her Back.

Have an idea?

Men's activities are driven by men who are trying to minister to other men: getting them together, developing relationships, sharing what is most important in life. Men, we do not grow as ‘Lone Rangers’! We grow in life situations with others. Join in, change your life.

Hey, have a great idea for a family outing? Contact Pastor Gib at P.S. We will ask you to help facilitate!
