Becoming Men of Integrity: Fear & Courage

Men are invited to join us as we continue our dialogue on Becoming Men of Integrity by discussing the contrasting topics of fear and courage. What are some of the things men might become afraid of?

The Den-TVC Main

Our newest men's group meets on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8 pm in the Den at TVC Main. This group is for Christians or non-Christians who long to be free from the anxieties of life, who want to gain a clear conscience and who want to become detached from thoughts that buzz around in their heads concerning material things. Participants will learn how to be intimate with God, how to lay their troubles down at Jesus' feet, and how to be strong in the Holy Spirit. Questions? Call Tony Higginbotham at 615-973-1622 or Rod Schumacher at 615-521-9029.

Newcomers are welcome to join the group at any time or feel free to try them out for a meeting or two. Many members have been attending the group for years and are powerful prayer warriors.
