Being and making disciples of Jesus is always relational. When we intentionally connect with one another, we create opportunities for the exhortation, accountability and prayerful support we need amidst the complexities and struggles that emerge in daily life. The goal of men’s ministry at LRC is to create opportunities for these things to happen. In additional to short-term small groups the Men’s Ministry offers two weekend experiences.
Men’s Encounter is a 48 hour weekend, where men (18 years & older) can experience the power and freedom, paid for by Jesus on the cross. Men’s Encounter weekend has 12 different sessions. Each session has a time of praise and worship, true life testimonies, teaching from God’s word and both are done by ordinary men, telling their story of before their encounter with Jesus and the results of that encounter with Him. Each session ends with a time of personal reflection.
The Men’s Fall Getaway is a one-weekend retreat in November dedicated to relaxation, fun, and zero responsibilities. Set on the Little Red River in Heber Springs, activities on Saturday usually include rappelling, range shooting, and trout fishing. Meals include hot breakfast, huge sandwiches, endless snacks, and an over-the-top steak dinner. Arrive when you want, leave when you want, and participate how you want. This weekend is about having a great time, soaking up God’s creation, and finding respite from our demanding schedules.
