MEN’S BIBLE STUDY: “Play the Man” by Mark Batterson (Issaquah)
Somewhere along the way, our culture lost its definition of manhood, leaving generations of men and men-to-be confused about their roles, responsibilities, relationships, and the reason God made them men. It’s into this “no man’s land” that New York Times bestselling author Mark Batterson declares his mantra for manhood: play the man.
In this inspiring call to something greater, he helps men understand what it means to be a man of God by unveiling seven virtues of manhood. Mark shares inspiring stories of manhood, including the true story of the hero and martyr Polycarp, who first heard the voice from heaven say, “Play the man.” Mark couples those stories with practical ideas about how to disciple the next generation of men. This is more than a book; it’s a movement of men who will settle for nothing less than fulfilling their highest calling to be the man and the father God has destined them to be. Play the man. Make the man.
Wednesdays beginning January 17 at 7pm in the Chapel (Issaquah). Dinner available at 6:30pm. Course materials: $10.
WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY: “The Romans Road” by Cheryl Jamison (Issaquah)
The book of Romans shows us God’s heart toward us and the reminder that “Who we are is more important to God than what we do.” There is a greater emphasis on being rather than doing. Although none of us are given a care free life without “doing,” we are reminded that the power of “being” brings revelation, fulfillment and peace. Join us on the journey of grace as we travel the Romans Road together this winter in our women’s Bible study in Issaquah.
