Come join Bethany’s Saturday morning men’s group for an exciting new six week study call Radical (by David Platt) they will be starting in October 13th. As the you can imagine from a study called Radical it is about abandoning everything for the sake of the Gospel, taking up your cross daily and following Christ. In class each week the group will watch and discuss a DVD, recite a memory verse and have small group accountability (2-3 guys). Prior to class participants will complete a weekly at home study. The group meets every Saturday from 6:30-8:00am. You do not have to be a member of Bethany to participate. Get off the couch and get in the game and join them!

Bethany will have a reserved cabin for our men to share space and get to know each other better.

Dare to make a difference. Make an impact on yourself, your family, your church and your community. Join a small group today!
“I’ve been a part of the Bethany Men’s Ministry for several years, I’ve come to know a lot of great men and have gained much insight from small-group Bible studies as well as conferences and one-on-one time with many of the men here. I look forward to investing more time into the Men’s Ministry at Bethany and to forming new friendships.”

Men’s Prayer Focus
FEBRUARY 18TH TO FEBRUARY 24TH
Just a brief follow up on Pastor Dave’s message today, regarding carrying each other’s burdens especially those involving sin. Remember he said there were 3 types of people. Those who see problems in others, never looking in the mirror at themselves, those who want to nose around to get dirt on others and spread gossip. And the type of person we as brothers in Christ should be and that is a person who has compassion and seeks to help those with their burdens.
Take for instance the burden of Sexual Impurity. We have discussed it at our Saturday breakfasts and have had small groups (thanks to bothers like Curt Schneck), addressing the issue.
In our scripture today, Pastor Dave referenced Galatians 6:1-10.
Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted. 2 Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
Most important was the last verse:
Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
And, as an encouragement:
“Then I will come down and speak with you there, and I will take of the Spirit who is upon you, and will put Him upon them; and they shall bear the burden of the people with you, so that you will not bear it all alone.
Guys, let our prayer focus this week include asking God that each of us as the Men of Bethany, that we would follow the scriptures and bear each other’s burdens, pray that we would be willing to get together in small groups or other events and be humble enough share our burdens with each other, so we do indeed “fulfill the law of Christ” and in a spirit of unity, fight together and defeat Satan’s attempts to draw us into sin.
Thanks for all of your prayers guys!
