About the men’s fellowship

At Snowdon Baptist Church, we celebrate diversity! Part of that celebration is the loud and clear proclamation that men are men and women are women (Gen. 5:2); equal but different. Indeed, Professor Al Mohler has written

“Men and women equally bear the image of God; yet, they are distinct in their roles, as men seek to glorify God in biblical masculinity while women glorify God through biblical femininity”

The Men’s Group at Snowdon has been set up with a view to working out the nitty gritty of what it means to glorify God in biblical masculinity. 

The Men’s Group is so much more than a monthly breakfast club. However, with the notable exception of one (never to be repeated …) over-ambitious attempt at cooking Eggs Benedict, high-quality, nutritious and delicious man-sized breakfasts, forming the catalyst for much bonhomie and fellowship, have been the starting point of our monthly meetings.

Following breakfast, we may listen to a testimony or watch a DVD together. However, we don’t want to just be spectators of an event featuring a talented speaker. This is why, in the last part of our meetings, we gather together in smaller groups to discuss what we are learning, to share and to pray for each other

Special activities in 2020 include the Promise Keepers Conference in Ottawa in February and a springtime hike to the summit of Mount Mansfield in Vermont. Looking to the summer we remain hopeful that we will be able to persuade someone with a garden and all the required equipment to host a men’s barbecue. That would be nice! 

The Men’s Group is intended to be a safe space where we can let our guards down, and real connected-ness can happen as we reach out to each other. No-one understands a man like another man and we need one another!

A friend loves at all times,

    and a brother is born for a time of adversity.

Proverbs 17 : 17 (NIV)
