FPC MEN

"… As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another…" PROVERBS 27:17

FPC Men exists to connect all First Presbyterian men to the church’s mission and a discipleship lifestyle. FPC Men includes all men, wherever they may be in life’s journey, and includes a wide range of opportunities for men to Connect, Serve, and Grow.

We also want to support and encourage new initiatives that are brought forth by men in our community. If you have a passion for an activity or ministry that can help further God’s kingdom, we would love to hear from you.

We celebrate the places men are engaged in the work of the Lord, encourage all men to get involved, and assist men to be leaders in the home, church, and community. Men are invited to weekly and periodic events throughout the year. Visit the Featured Events page and look at Men’s Ministry section for current events and opportunities to connect.

Annual Spring Retreat 

This weekend can be whatever you and your group decides. You can stay at a lake house for a weekend of fishing or water sports. You can stay at a beach house for a weekend of golf. Some groups may rent a cabin for a weekend of hiking or mountain biking. We think this will provide a memorable and unique opportunity to connect with other men and deepen friendships.

We will conclude the Pursuit Adventure Weekends with an outdoor celebration night on Monday, May 3 at the Saluda Outdoor Center for a night of food, fellowship, worship and equipping. Be sure to use discount code FPCMEN50 when you register.

Each smaller Pursuit weekend will be hosted by a trained and equipped leader who will choose the dates, location, and adventure activities for his group. First Pres plans to recruit 6-12 men to lead/facilitate small groups using prepared materials. The gatherings will include several discussion sessions involving biblical topics related to following Christ and authentic masculinity.

Weekly Growth and Training 

THURSDAY MORNING MEN
Thursdays, 9:00-10:00am • ZOOM 

Thursday Morning Men of First Presbyterian invite you to join them. This lively group delves into the Bible to discern not only the contextual background of the Scriptures, but also how to use these God-breathed truths in life applications, studying the Bible one book at a time. Want to be a better husband, father, grandfather, uncle, or son? You will find many answers here to life’s complex questions. Shed the busyness of daily life and concentrate on the main thing of the main thing: Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.

JOBS FOR LIFE

Jobs for Life is a transformational ministry designed to equip men who are getting back up on their feet to find and keep a job. This 25-year-old program has transformed the lives of over 45,000 people and their families.

The FPC Men’s Ministry is partnering with Miracle Hill’s Greenville Rescue Mission to begin the first eight-week class in March (conditions permitting). We pray that a few men with a heart to serve others will join our team to serve as mentors. We also pray that business owners will volunteer to serve as guest speakers and provide help with interview practice.

Visit JobsForLife.org to learn more.

Jobs for Life is a ministry that transforms the lives of everyone who gets involved, both students and volunteers. Several great people are already on the team, but we still need your talents! Let’s talk about how you can contribute to this ministry.

As Jesus said in Matthew 25:40, “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’”
