2016 Men’s Day

Our first-ever Mountain Empire Men’s Fellowship, held August 27, 2016, was a tremendous success.  179 Christian men from throughout the region gathered for a day of fellowship, singing, prayers, and challenging lessons from the word of God.  You can look over the topics and guest speakers below, and listen to recordings of each of these by clicking on the “Sermons” link at the top of this page.

Look for another Men’s Fellowship in 2017; we’ll announce a date and other details soon on this site.
