Dads, this group is for you. And moms, this group is for the dads you know. Starting on 8/15 (Tuesdays at 6:15am at the church building), we will have a new group for dads… but it’s not a BOB group. This group has a different purpose. The goal is for dads to meet together to learn biblical truth and pray so that we are in position to lead our families well at home.
The truth of the matter is that, if you are a dad, you have a job: chief discipler in your home. Ephesians 6:4 says, “Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.” Your job is to train and instruct your children to follow Christ. Our job as a church is to equip you to do that well. Ephesians 5:25-26 says, “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word.” Christ loved his bride by washing her through the word… and husbands are called to love their wives in that way too. Your job is to love your spouse through the power of the Word. Our job as a church is to equip you to do that well.
Who is leading?
This is so important and valuable that three of our pastors (Izzy, Bo, and Kelly) will be playing a role in leading this group.
When? Where? What?
So, we are going to meet at the church building each Tuesday morning with coffee and donuts (or something donut-esque) in order to wrestle with good, biblical truth together. The point of this is that each of us would be positioned well to do that in our own families. Paul taught Timothy so that he would “be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus,” so that Timothy could take those truths and “entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also” (2 Tim 2:1-2). That’s what we are doing.
So what will our group be called? Entrusted.
What is the point? Strengthening fathers to lead strong at home.
Who can come? Any dad. It doesn’t matter if your kids are still at home or if your family situation is complicated. All fathers and grandfathers are welcome.
