Men’s Breakfast & Bible Study

Men's Breakfast & Bible StudyBreakfast, the first meal of the day. What tops the list for satisfying hunger at breakfast? Bacon! It's ahead of whatever's in second place. And for satisfying spiritual hunger? God's word without a doubt. Combine Bacon and the Bible and you can't go wrong.

Our men's breakfast acts primarily as a fellowship opportunity for men, seeking to learn more about Jesus, to come together in fellowship, worship and prayer combined with good food.  Our time together starts promptly at 7AM and ends at 8AM sharp so those still working can get on their way. Others with more time may remain to continue private discussion of the lesson or have accountability or prayer sessions after wards. But, maybe you'd just like another cup of coffee and spend a few minutes watching the St. Vrain river amble through the back yard.

We invite men of all ages to join us: neighborhood friends, family members, sons and grandsons, or maybe just a passersby on their way to and from the Estes Park area. We’ve had several join us for a day while on vacation, some for extended periods while here on a temporary assignment. We've also had pastors from surrounding churches join us. This is a great group of men from doctors, lawyers & Indian Chiefs to butchers, bakers & candlestick makers all discussing their walk in faith with Jesus. We hope you'll join us. If you have any questions, please call Russ @303-776-5416.

If you are interested in joining us but can’t make a Wednesday morning, we'd like to invite you to join us at the Deeper Dive meeting on Thursday nights at 6PM.

Bible Study

A weekly study guide is prepared with links to the Sunday sermon and all scripture referenced in it .  Any of the men attending the breakfast are also invited to attend a Zoom meeting, usually held on Sunday afternoon or Monday morning, to develop some leading questions designed to stimulate the Wednesday breakfast conversation. We believe that one of the main purposes of of our gathering is to understand how we may apply the Sunday lesson in our own lives. Was there something mentioned that we've never thought of, or maybe we need to consider it from a different perspective we haven't experienced.

We also develop some thoughtful "Take Aways", some one liners that might help summarize the lesson in a way that's easy to recall. There are many professionally authored books like this but we might want to develop our own personal copy of the things that affected our life in particular. Our relationship with Jesus, the one He desires is, after all, a very personal one.

Fellowship & Worship

Men's Breakfast & Bible Study

The breakfast menu offerings are posted each week in our "Events" calendar, and vary depending on who's cooking. Breakfast is free for all who attend and extra food goes out to anyone in need in the local area.

We are most fortunate in that our church was originally a restaurant and we have a commercial kitchen at our disposal. Our typical attendance pre-Covid was 35-40 men so the cooks have become adept at feeding men efficiently.

We start serving at 7AM promptly after asking God's blessing and we’ll finish eating in about 20-25 minutes with a song of worship.

We have a few musicians who might accompany the worship on the guitar, mandolin, keyboard or harp. The piper picks the tune, the men sing. A cappella is also heard occasionally when the musicians are not available. It is amazing to hear how men, moved by God, sound when they cast aside their inhibitions for 16 bars and sing from their hearts. It is our wish that it be a joyful noise unto the Lord.

Prayer

We spend time in prayer for many reasons, some personal, some regarding local, national or international issues, e.g. disasters, human suffering or conflict. We strongly believe God's message found in Paul's letter to the Philippians 4:6-7, " do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

Pots, Pans & Elbow Grease

Men's Breakfast & Bible StudyCleanup is handled by those attending as the Fellowship Hall is sometimes used by the local students for lunch hosted by our Youth Pastor. Many hands make light work so it's an easy task. It's also another opportunity to work together with other men of the church to further this ministry.

 

An Invitation

So, if your a guy looking to learn more about this man named Jesus, we invite you to stop by any Wednesday morning at seven. Set a spell and join us for a breakfast and friendly conversation. And, if the Spirit moves you, stay, listen, think, ask questions and learn of  the man from Galilee. We think you'll find your hunger and thirst satisfied for the day but eager for more.  If that turns out to be the case, you'll be welcomed every week. The door is always open and the well never runs dry.
