Each year men join together on Tuesday mornings to enjoy breakfast, teaching and small groups.  This winter, Men’s Life will explore Renovation of the Heart with an all-star lineup of teaching leaders: Erik Hanson, Jane Filkin, Scott Filkin, Daniel Susenbach and Dave Pascoe.

When asked which was the greatest commandment, Jesus replied, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind….and love your neighbor as yourself.” It's a beautiful sentiment, but what does this really look like in our daily lives? Is it a choice we make or the result of God’s grace working in and through us?  


In the coming weeks, Men’s Life will turn from the parables and get down to the nitty gritty of whole life transformation. Informed by Dallas Willard’s modern classic, Renovation of the Heart, our teaching team will seek to offer some practical insights into how to love God and neighbor with our whole selves. In a nutshell it involves taking on the character of Christ through the transformation of our spirit such that our thoughts, feelings, will, body, relationships and soul are all effectively organized around God. Easier said than done? Join us to find out!
