A friend loves at all times, and kinsfolk are born to share adversity. Proverbs 17:17 (NRSV)
The world makes it easy to be distracted, disillusioned, and detached from God and each other. Since joining together in fellowship guards against these negative conditions, being in authentic community with each other is vital to our well-being. So consider the following opportunities for getting to know other men at Cross of Life.
Monday Weekly Bible Study
This group gathers in the Adult Center each Monday night at 7:00 pm. They study books of the Bible, books about the Bible, as well as other topics related to faith and how it impacts our lives. All are welcome to join the conversation.
Monthly Men’s Group
This group for men meets for fellowship and talks about the challenges of living out their faith. They meet on the third Saturday of each month at 9 am in the Adult Center.
These dedicated volunteers meet the third Friday of each month to help with maintenance of our building and grounds. It’s not all work though because they first meet at a local Mexican restaurant for food and fellowship.

This winter retreat is held at Lake Chatuge Lodge at the beginning of each year, usually the last weekend in January. Participants appreciate being able to get away to focus on their spiritual well-being and to build relationships. The 2020 retreat, let by Pastor Delmer Chilton, had the theme “A Second Wind” that focused on following the Spirit in life’s “second act.” There was no retreat in 2021 due to the pandemic.
