As was discussed back in June, we are working with some new categories for meetings and activities in the coming years: Gatherings, Forums, Groups, and Field. You may be wondering, "Where does Manskool fit in this new framework?" I'm glad you asked!
Manskool will join the ladies Bible study group, ladies book study group, and Middleton discipleship group in the "Groups" category moving forward. I heard from the Manskool crowd at our last meeting in the spring that they really like the smaller group focus of Manskool and the interaction and involvement it fosters with both sons and dads.
A number of dads stepped up at that meeting and said they'd be willing to help drive Manskool this year. I'm looking forward to what God will do through these men in Manskool this year. I pray God uses this as a channel for young men to learn to be disciples of Jesus Christ in their everyday lives.
Here is the schedule for Manskool for 2012-2013:
- February 16 (changed from February 23)
Manskool is focused on senior high teens and their dads (however, a teen does not need his dad with him to attend). Meetings are from 8:30 am - 10:00 am at the church.
At the first meeting of the year (September 8), we'll be talking about what Manskool will look like in the coming year and how dads can get more involved in making this ministry happen.
