Men's Ministry

Where Relevant Faith Meets Real Life!

Our theme is not unique but it accurately captures our goal.  Our focus is to encourage men to live our lives being authentic as modeled by Jesus Christ and directed by the Word of God.  We desire men to grow and develop in their relationship with God, to be spiritual leaders of their homes and to influence their world for the mission of Christ. 

McDermot Mens Ministry is a place where men can connect with other men over breakfast and God's Word to encourage spiritual transformation.  We want to create opportunities for friendship and service throughout the year.

 

During COVID 19 we are having a "Bring Your Own Breakfast" meetings on the first Saturdays of the month from 8:00am-9:00am. We have in place a number of protocols during this Pandemic from hand sanitizer to physical distancing and other methods to promote safety.

Fridays at 7:00-9:30pm

Worship Ministry

Psalm 96:1-3- "Oh sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth! Sing to the Lord, bless his name; tell of his salvation from day to day. Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples!"

At McDermot, worship is more than lyrics on a screen, or music to be played. We strive for worship to be our lifestyle, where we praise and serve God in all aspects of our lives because of His amazing grace. We are called to ‘worship in spirit and truth’ (John 4:24), and we engage corporately to praise our God every Sunday morning through music, listening and responding, Scripture reading, and giving. Through these avenues our prayer is that all who come can enter into His presence. Drama is an ever-growing aspect of our worship services, presented through monologues, short vignettes, or longer scripts.
