Men's Ministry

Men's Retreat to Falls Creek
March 1-2, 2013 / Cost $30

Enjoy great Bible study, fellowship and recreation. Our special guest Bible study leader will be Shane Hall, Pastor of First Baptist Church of Lawton.  This year, we have added some recreation opportunities on Friday for those who can get away a little earlier.  We're expecting a great retreat of experiencing God and enjoying community! 

Transportation - VERY IMPORTANT!

Please contact the church office (485-2181 or fbcblanchard@pldi.net) and let us know whether you plan to travel to Falls Creek with the early group at 11:00 am, or the late group at 4:30 pm, or if you are traveling separately at some other time.  Also, be sure to mention if you plan to play golf so we can make arrangements.

What's a real man?  According to the messages beamed into our living rooms each night through the TV, all men can be lumped into one of the following groups:

  • domineering chauvinist pig 
  • lovable buffoon  
  • womanizing "skirt chaser"
  • pathetic wimp
The truth is that most men are looking for a life that has far more meaning and substance than that.  At FBC Blanchard, our Men's Ministry encourages and equips men to reach new heights as husbands, fathers and leaders in the church and our community.  Through our men's Bible studies, prayer groups, retreats, fellowships, mentoring and other activities, we're seeing more and more men become all that God has made and called them to be.  Along the way, addictions are broken, marriages are strengthened, lifelong friendships are made and spiritual foundations are laid that sustain men through the storms of life.
