Men of Berean

Men of Berean offers on-going opportunities for men to learn, transform, and get to know other men. Plug in to what's going on here at Berean--we are glad to have you along.

IronWorks for Men

Led by Pastor Roger Thompson, IronWorks exists to strengthen men through the teaching of God’s Word and the application of God’s truth to everyday issues. These 8-week men's Bible studies feature live teaching and small group discussions. Come any time or all the time.

Fall 2018 Session
"First Responders: All in From the Start!"

Fridays, beginning Sept. 28, 2018 | 6:30-7:30 a.m.| Room 114
Wednesdays, beginning Oct. 3, 2018 | 6:30-8 p.m.| Room 119

“First Responders” are not only those who rush to scene of a fire, an accident or a threat. They are men who see the need, hear the call of God, and go ALL IN from the start. This session of IronWorks will highlight eight such men who responded and acted instantaneously to follow God. We will be challenged and inspired by these real and practical examples.
