Men's Fellowship League
The MFL is an organization of Christian men at FPC who fellowship together, serve the needs of the church together, and study God's Word together in order to grow in holiness. Our goal is to obey Christ's Masculine Mandate, which is to become better stewards of all that Christ gives us to guard, protect, and to grow including our lives, our marriages, our children, our church, and our livelihood for God's glory.
The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. ~ Genesis 2:15
As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. ~ Ephesians 4:1
But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: "Be holy, because I am holy." ~ 1 Peter 15:16
How MFL Serves Our Church Community and Each Other
- We provide physical and material help to widows, the elderly, single moms, and shut ins.
- We raise funds via fundraisers to contribute to the needs of families in our church, for the physical needs of our church, for missions, and for other Christian service organizations such as "God's Little Acres."
- We provide an outlet for fellowship for men in the church to create and grow relationships with other FPC men. Each year we have group outings which include NCAA football games, NHL hockey games, MLB baseball games, target shooting, fishing, and golfing.
- We provide sources for our men to learn how to obey all that God requires of His newly adopted sons in the faith. Sources include Bible Studies, our annual retreat, and special seminars.
MFL Bible Studies
The MFL is currently studying How Should We Then Live? by Francis Schaeffer. The study is led by Tim Vertz and meets the first and third Saturday of every month at 8:30 a.m. in Room 146 at CSCA.
Book Description: Francis Schaeffer wrote that, "To understand where we are in today's world -- in our intellectual ideas and in our cultural and political lives -- we must trace three lines in history, namely, the philosophic, the scientific, and the religious." That is exactly what he does in How Should We Then Live?. The Way a person lives is based on how they view the world. Ideas are not without consequences.
