The Men’s Group at First Church is a small Bible study group that meets the first and third Saturday of each month in Trumbull House. A continental breakfast is provided.

Any man interested in Bible study is invited to attend any meeting. There is nothing to join, and familiarity with Scripture is not required. Novices are welcome. Membership in First Church or any church is also not required.

The focus of our group is patterned after the early church, as recounted in Acts 2:42: discipleship, fellowship, the breaking of bread, and prayer.

Meetings on Saturday morning take place from 7:30 to 9 a.m. Food is ready by 7:30 a.m. and the Bible study and discussion usually begin around 8 a.m.

 

The men’s group will meet on Saturday, October 7 and October 21.

Our sessions run from 7:30 – 9 a.m. in Trumbull House, with a continental breakfast served.

All men of the church, guests, and visitors are encouraged to attend.

Current Study:  1 Peter

Bob Albretsen will lead us in our study on the book of 1 Peter, an important, readable, and practical book, written by the apostle Peter “with the help of Silas.”  We’ll be using the study guide, A Life-Changing Encounter with God’s Word from the Book of 1 Peter, from the NavPress.  From the publisher:

“For Christians facing ridicule in a pagan world, it was difficult to focus on their ‘living hope.’ Peter wrote to remind these hard-pressed Christians of their rich identities in Christ and to encourage them to face their sufferings with Christlike character. The 13 lessons of this Bible study on 1 Peter examine Peter’s heartfelt challenge to practical Christianity.”

Steve Robey has additional copies available at a discounted price of $8.  More information about the book can be found at: https://www.navpress.com/p/1-peter/9780891090526
