Men’s Life is for all men, no matter what faith. It doesn't even matter whether you go to church. The fact is, we’d like to see lots of new faces. Our doors are open to all – from the 20’s on up.
New for Summer 2017:
Lincoln’s Battle with God by Stephen Mansfield
a 5-week book study of the life and faith of Abraham Lincoln
Much has been written about the life of Abraham Lincoln. This book by Stephen Mansfield seeks to explore the faith of Lincoln and his relationship with God. What we learn is that Lincoln was not unlike many of us. He had a childhood that was influenced by the beliefs of his parents. He had a young adulthood of faith exploration. Events of the rest of his life formed and changed his faith and view of God. But what is perhaps most telling, are the last words he spoke to his wife before he was killed. Come explore Lincoln’s life with us and perhaps use it as a way of taking a new look at your own faith journey.

Our facilitator: Andy Meyer
Andy is relatively new to the area and to First Pres. He moved to Longmont from Iowa in January of this year and began attending First Pres in February. He joined Men’s Life and attended the rest of the year. Prior to moving to Longmont his career was spent running a variety of businesses, and he eventually ended up working with a venture capital firm helping to make and manage investments in start-up companies. This past semester he was involved in teaching entrepreneurship to MBA students at CU. He enjoys biking, backpacking and most things outdoors. He also enjoys singing in two local vocal ensembles. He is a strong advocate of the value of men’s small groups and men’s ministry and looks forward to sharing that as part of this class.

Looking back at 2016-17 Men's Life
2016-17 Men's Life: "Wake up and Grow!"
Take a look at your life. How close is it to what you'd like it to be? Now take a look at Jesus' life. On spiritual journey we are asking a different question. How close is your life to his? Some of us need a jump start. Some of us need a kick start. Some of us need a kick in the pants. And some of us may need a helping hand.
