What’s in a Name ? While the O-Ring name may sound a little unconventional for a men’s ministry, it actually has a great deal of symbolism and meaning for us. An O-Ring is the most widely adapted seal in history because of its simplicity, low cost, ease of installation, small space requirements, and its ability to assume function based on its supporting structures. Successful use depends upon proper groove dimensions and selection of the right mix of supporting materials.
For us, each and every man within our group symbolizes the “seal” , or protector if you will, for their family. We also recognize that just as a perfectly functioning O-Ring needs the right supporting materials, we as Christian men need a support system as we grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ. Finally, an O-Ring is a circle without beginning or end and is an excellent reminder of the love of our heavenly Father.
The O-Ring Bible Study will be held Wednesday nights in FBC's Activity Center from 8-8:50pm, starting September 6th. More details are forthcoming, but for now we'll plan to kick off our first night with a big-picture overview of A Wanted Man, written by Jason Cruise (the guest speaker at our Sportsman's Dinner outreach) and based on John 10:10 "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly."
More Than a Bible Study…
Teaching Meaningful and pertinent small group meetings are at the core of spiritual growth.
Evangelism An emphasis is placed upon “The Great Commission”. This ministry seeks to provide opportunities to share the gospel and to share our own testimonies.
Entertainment Group activities are an integral part of fun and fellowship. The goal is to foster close relationships between men nurturing an unbreakable trust and respect between each other as Brothers in Christ.
Mentoring Emphasis should be placed on regular contact between group members to better know, encourage and pray for each other.
