In March of 1999 the first Men’s breakfast was held. Eighteen men were present at the first meeting. There are now over thirty men taking part. Not all can make it each month but about half are present at each breakfast. At the first breakfast it was decided to make our church home our major project. And so, in cooperation with the Board of Trustees, the men work around the church repairing, cleaning, or anything else we are asked to do, to maintain our church building.
Since then they have also taken on projects outside the church as part of the American Baptist Men Disaster Relief Teams. The fellowship is great and an enjoyable time is had by all participants.
All men of the church are welcome to participate. If participation in projects is not something you can or care to do, you may come for the fellowship. Linger over coffee and enjoy the company of other men. All men, young and senior, are encouraged to join in. The group meets the first Saturday each month at 8:00 a.m.
