campfires at the barn

September 7 | 7-9 pm
2491 Lyn Lane | Lakeville, MN 55044

The most powerful and engaging thing about you is your story. It is unique to you.  It contains fresh essons and insights for you when you tell it and for everyone who hears it. When we pause to reflect on our story we recognize how God has been writing His story into our story! The best place to tell your story is around the “campfire. “ These will be informal, but facilitated times  to hear the stories of other men, and perhaps to hear your own story clearly for the first time. 

You won't want to miss the September campfire.  Jake Chaya is going to be smoking some delicious barbecue for us.  So please REGISTER HERE so we can plan enough for everyone.

Religion and Politics!  Engaging the culture without losing the Gospel

Teaching Pastor, Roger Thompson leads IronWorks, an 8 week men's Bible study that meets in the fall, winter and spring during the year.  There is live teaching and small group discussion about issues specifically tailored to men.  We will be taking the summer off, but will resume in September with a very timely topic,  "Religion and Politics! Engaging the culture without losing the Gospel".  In the mean time, check out Men Pray on Friday mornings or take a look online at past IronWorks sessions you may have missed.

real men pray

FriDAYS 6:30 - 7:30 A.M. | room 114

Even though we have concluded our formal teaching series, we continue to meet for prayer on Friday mornings. You don't need to be a prayer warrior to attend. Just like Jesus' disciples, who asked: "Lord, teach us to pray."  Join us for progress in your praying life, good fellowship, and breakfast afterwards.


REAL MEN DO THIS... learn how you can use your time and talents to make a difference. Check out current opportunities to get involved with the Faith Family and serve together HERE

annual bike trip

September 9-12

Want to get away on an adventure?   Love the smell of bacon in the morning?   Need an incentive to get yourself in shape?   Looking for the best way to connect with other men?  THE MEN’S BIKE TRIP is all of these!  

The ANNUAL BIKE TRIP is coming, (Sept. 9-12) but it’s totally different this year. Traditionally we have biked a “Circle Route” of 60 miles per day, camping as we go.  This year we will be riding a “Cloverleaf” pattern. We will establish a base camp at a  central location and take trips from there each day.

 Only, it’s not a base camp: It’s a farm house near Spring Grove, in South East Minnesota.  It’s a spectacular location! It’s near bluff country, the Mississippi River, Amish farms, Decorah, Iowa, and the Root River. There will be lots of routes to choose from!

  • No set-up and tear-down every day.
  • A real kitchen for food preparation.
  • Better rest: you won’t have to sleep on the ground.
  • A shower.
  • More down time and fellowship around the campfire.

But besides these amenities, this will provide a wider opportunity for you to participate.

  • If you can’t ride all four days you can join us or leave us at any point. (For example: Some guys are riding only the weekend. Others are joining us for three days.)
  • If you are unprepared for long rides you can plan your own route to suit your conditioning. (Ride into town for a cinnamon roll and call it a day!)
  • You can bring a mountain bike as well as a road bike and spend a day on trails and back roads. (It’s gorgeous countryside!)
  • You can gang up with your posse and make the day’s ride as challenging as you want.
  • You can pay per day.

So, are you IN???  RSVP HERE 

trout lake camp retreat


Every guy goes to the Men's Retreat at Trout Lake for his own reason. Some are looking for spiritual renewal,,, to hang out with other guys or time in the great outdoors. Some guys just want to burn stuff in the campfire. Whatever your reason, we hope to see you there.
