Welcome to a new study…..!
This week, we’ll launch into our new book, “How God Makes Men” by Patrick Morley. Check last week’s post to see how you can order the book and sign up to lead one or more of the ten planned lessons of this series.
Mike will kick off the series by covering Chapter 1: Abraham: The Principle of Believing in God Anyway. Your homework is to read chapter 1 ahead of time…..but, as always, if life gets in the way this week….still come on Friday! You will always pick up a thing or two even if you didn’t read the chapter ahead of time. (Just don’t make it a habit!)
Abraham is often called one of the founding fathers of Biblical history. What made him so great?
Well, as we’ll see this week, Abraham is not a whole lot different than you and me. Maybe more so to some than others…but still, he was a flawed man among flawed men.
God presents Abraham with three significant tests, and we’ll discuss all three this Friday. Key your reflections ahead of time to the three questions at the end of the chapter on page 17:
- What is God calling you to trust Him for that makes you say, “Are you kidding me, God?”
- What was the operative principle in Abraham’s life according to Hebrews 11:8, 11, and 17? And how did this principle play out in the three tests for Abraham?
- Which of these three tests are you currently facing? How is God showing you to believe in Him anyway?
See you on Friday at the Cornwell Center. Gather at 7:30 am. Mike kicks off the lesson at 7:45 am.
This week, we’ll wrap-up our series on “Jesus Outside the Lines” by Rev. Scott Sauls. It’s been a great study! For this week’s final lesson, please read the Epilogue section of the book and come prepared to discuss.
Also note that we’re meeting at the Charlotte Cafe for breakfast this Friday, our “tradition” each time we complete a series! Please join us at 7:30 am at the Park Road Shopping Center location.
I’ll also introduce our next series……drum roll please….!
“How God Makes Men: Ten Epic Stories. Ten Proven Principles. One Huge Promise for Your Life” by Patrick Morley. This 10 week series will run from July 20th until September 28th. We’ll take the Friday before Labor Day “off” but otherwise will meet each week.
ORDER the book on AMAZON at this LINK.
Weekly Leader Sign Ups for our next series are NOW live on the website: SIGN UP FOR NEXT SERIES
Please order the book ($11.99) in advance of next Friday’s kickoff lesson; Chapter 1: Abraham: How God Makes Man’s Faith Stronger.
If you haven’t been to FMMF in a few weeks, now’s a great time to jump right back into a rhythm! Come this week as we conclude one series, and launch our next one!
See you this week, as Mike leads our discussion and fellowship.
Last week, we decided to NOT gather this week, July 6th, given that many of our men would be out of town for the holiday. So….enjoy the time with family, friends, and fireworks! NEXT Friday, July 13th, we’ll wrap up our current series on “Jesus Outside the Lines”. Please read the final section of the book, the epilogue, and come prepared to discuss some summary points.
Mike will lead us next week, but all are welcome to share their thoughts.
Also, remember that we’ll meet at The Charlotte Cafe at 7:30 am next week (not the Cornwell Center).
Happy 4th of July!
