Southside Men

We are a discipleship ministry of Southside United Methodist Church. Each week our men gather on Monday evenings, Wednesday mornings, and Wednesday evenings to study the Bible, pray for and encourage one another, and enjoy Christian fellowship. We seek to be accountable to one another as we prepare for each week’s lesson, participate in discussions, build each other up in our faith, and pray for one another’s needs. To paraphrase John Wesley, our desire is to watch over one another in love.

Our philosophy of men’s ministry is pretty simple. We believe men are transformed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ from the inside out. When a man trusts in the Gospel he becomes a new creation in Christ. His worldview and character begin to change and he starts to think, speak, and live like Christ in every sphere of his life. As a man is conformed to the ​likeness of Christ, he naturally begins to influence the world ​around him.  He permeates the various spheres of his life as salt and light: at home, work, church, neighborhood and community, city, culture, and even the world.

God uniquely calls, gifts, and leads each man to make a difference in the world for the sake of God’s kingdom and glory. Our time together each week serves men toward this purpose.

If you aren’t able to meet with us during one of our small group meeting times, I would be delighted to meet with you in person or via Zoom video. At Southside, we take ministry to men seriously and want to do all we can to help you become the man God has created, redeemed, and called to you be.

Your Brother in Christ,
Dale


Here is what we’ll be studying Fall 2019…

Monday Men

Beginning Monday, September 9th, we will start a study called, “God’s Unshakable Kingdom.” Here’s a blurb on what this study will be about…

“The Kingdom of God was central to the teaching of Jesus. The phrase, “Kingdom of God,” appears 98 times in the New Testament, more than 60 times from Jesus himself. Join us as we build an understanding of the vision for which Jesus lived and died – a vision that transforms individuals, families, churches, and whole nations.”

We meet Monday evenings, at 7pm, in our Family Life Center. (7-8:30pm)


Wednesday Morning Men

Beginning Wednesday, September 11th, we will start a study called, “The Kingdom of God.” Here’s a blurb on what this study will be about…

Wednesday Evening Men

Beginning Wednesday, September 11th, we will start a study called, “Loving Your Wife: Strengthening Your Marriage in a Fallen World.” Here’s a blurb on what this study will be about…

“Loving Your Wife: Strengthening Your Marriage in a Fallen World”, is a study which explores twelve proven, biblical ways to strengthen and improve marriage. These include developing love that’s bold, courageous, and true; cultivating a compassionate, self-sacrificial, forgiving spirit toward one’s wife; discerning and meeting a wife’s needs; overcoming an angry, cynical, or critical spirit; and adopting a leadership style that will build intimacy, confidence, and genuine respect into marriage.”

We meet Wednesday evenings, at 6pm, in our Family Life Center. Come early and have dinner with our church family. (6-7pm)
