Act Like Men

Facilitator:Mike Taylor
Length:6 sessions

Where:CFBC
Who:Men
Cost of Book: $15.00
*Childcare available (must register for childcare)

What to expect from this study…
In many ways, our culture paints an unsavory and unseemly picture of manhood. The standard for how a man acts and conducts himself continues to be lowered. While some might see men's roles as insignificant, God tells a different story. God says that men matter, and He's appointed them to lead. Men fulfilling this role is vital to the health of our homes, churches, and society. Unfortunately, too many men follow the way of the world, instead of embracing the call of God. Instead of stepping up to their responsibility, they are stepping back. Pastor James MacDonald will challenge you to take hold of your God-given role. Through video teaching, group discussion, and personal Bible study, he will urge you to live out Paul's instruction in 1 Corinthians 16:13-14: Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love. These five phrases will serve as the foundation for you to be the man God calls, expects, and empowers you to be. For more information visit

Walking Free

 Facilitator:Daryl Gessner
Length:16 sessions
When:Begins Tuesday, September 11 @ 7:00 pm
Where:CFBC
Who:Men

What to expect from this study…
Walking Free is a confidential support and discipleship group which offers accountability for men struggling with pornography addiction and sexual addiction. The program is designed both for those who are new to sex addiction recovery and for those who have been in recovery for some time. Creating safe space for authentic relationships is central to Walking Free. In order to maintain a safe and confidential group environment, Walking Free is a closed group, meaning that only men who are enrolled in our sex addiction recovery and have demonstrated readiness for the group are invited to join. Prospective new group members are assessed for readiness through a brief phone interview with a Walking Free leader. Men invited to participate are also required to sign a confidentiality agreement in order to protect the safety of the group. After these requirements are met, new members participate in a multi-week orientation phase before joining a “Level 1” Walking Free group. For more information visit hopequestgroup.org.
