The world gives us many confusing messages about what it means to be a man. Jesus has made it clear. At the Abbotsford Vineyard Church (AVC), our men’s ministries are not designed to be simply times where “men can be men”, but rather significant places where men can provide and receive mentoring, encouragement, challenges and support in being the men that God has called them to be. We value authenticity in our relationships and seek to help each other live lives of integrity, honesty, purity and pursuing God.
WAYS TO CONNECT
In the past few years, the AVC has provided courses on men’s purity and bible study. There is a continued desire among men to study scripture in a more in-depth way, so look for these upcoming opportunities. There also continues to be opportunities to connect with Sports evenings and late-night movies and coffee. Since these ways to connect are more informal, checking us out on Facebook would be the best way to connect with these events.
In addition to these, the AVC runs a men’s (Fathers and Sons) advance in the Merritt area on the first weekend of June every year. We meet at a group site in a provincial campground for fun, fellowship and community building. There is always fishing, swimming, archery (firearms for those so inclined), and games as well as times of sharing, worship and prayer. We should also say that the food is second to none on these weekends! If you are new to the AVC and are looking for a way to connect, don’t pass up this opportunity! Bring your tent or your RV and your boys and come be a part of us!
