Men’s Ministry

Ascent Logo-02Purpose

The Men’s ministry at Taylor Creek exists for the purpose of reaching men with the gospel of Christ,  and growing them into a deeper relationship with Christ through the teaching and study of His word. Our desire is that the man God will be thoroughly equipped for every good work so that he can be all that God has called him to be in his home, church, and the world.

2 Timothy 2:2 “And the things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, these entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also.”

Men’s Breakfast

Man To Man Logo-smallThe third Saturday of every month at 8:00 to 10:00 AM, we as men meet for breakfast to Study God’s word, Prayer, fellowship and to encourage one another.

The Breakfast is held in the Main Sanctuary.  If you have questions or would like to help with cooking or setup, call or email the church office: (425) 432-0634.

Current Study Series:  

Man to man is study on the topic of what God’s Word has to say to men, concerning their Savior and what He says concerning their walk at  home, church,  and in the world.

 


Outreach Events:

Men’s Steak-Out is an annual outreach to share the gospel with our friends and neighbors by inviting them and paying for a round of golf, a steak dinner and to hear an encouraging  message.  TCC men are encouraged to invite unsaved co-workers, friends, neighbors and relatives to come and golf.

This is open to all men, high school on up.

For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.

Therefore comfort one another with these words.
