MEN'S SMALL GROUP OPTIONS FOR THE FALL
We want all of our men to get involved in one of these groups. There are days and times that will fit most schedules. Men's Fraternity will take place on Tuesday mornings at 6:00am in the church Parlor (facilitated by Chris Smith) and on Thursday evenings at 7:00pm at the home of Fred Eichholtz, 601 Honeysuckle Dr., Cleburne (facilitated by Aaron Christiansen). Both meeting days for Men's Fraternity will cover the same lesson so you truly have options to fit your busy schedule. Wednesday evening Men's Small Group will be The Real God starting at 6:00pm in the church Parlor (facilitated by Larry Chambless). Men, we would love to see you at one of these weekly small group meetings. Bring a friend or co-worker.
