MEN'S MINISTRY

Our Men's Ministries are dedicated to bringing Men of Christ
together in fellowship with one another.

Bible Study: At the Table

Every other Tuesday
6:30-7:30 a.m. at the Liberty Restaurant
​​​​​​​Meeting dates:  February 4 & 18, March 3, 17 & 31, April 14 & 28, May 12 & 26, June 9 & 23, July 7 & 21

Contact: Ken Weller or Andy Danckers (Please call the church office 847-362-2174 for contact information)

Join us every other Tuesday morning for prayer, Bible study, fellowship and breakfast as we explore how our Christian faith and scripture empower our response to the challenges and issues of the day. Come as often as you are able.


Everything goes better with bacon: bacon burgers; bacon macaroni and cheese, bacon pizza. How does this observation fit with the call for Bible study, prayer, service and fellowship in building an unshakeable faith?  Bacon and Bible is a wonderful way to start the day.


Very early on alternate Tuesday mornings, a group of hearty men discuss God’s involvement in our lives over heaping platters of crispy bacon, eggs, omelets, syrup-smothered pancakes and steaming bowls of oatmeal.


We choose a Psalm to explore. Why was it written? What is the point God is making? How can God’s message guide day-to-day life? Prayer for each participant’s concerns, challenges and joys focuses our hearts on God’s care for us.


Each lesson stands alone and no pre-reading is needed.


We meet for 60 minutes, finishing in time to catch the 7:54 Metra. Please come as your schedule permits. There is always a seat At the Table for you!



Sounding Board

2nd & 4th Saturdays, 7:30 am to 9:00 am in Fellowship Hall

Join us for breakfast, study, conversation, and prayer as we explore passages of scripture, passages of life, contemporary issues, and literature for men. There is no homework, and the leadership rotates among participants.

Our goals are fellowship, and to learn and grow in our Christian faith. 

For inspiration we typically rely on a book selection and cover a chapter per session with discussion leadership rotating among members. If this sounds like something you might enjoy, we’d welcome having you join our conversation and fellowship. Contact David Heusinkveld

Men's Lunch

Men from local churches meet monthly at a local restaurant for fellowship and discussion. 1st Wednesday of each month 11:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m.  McAlister's Deli in Vernon Hills. Contact Ken Weller

Fix-It Crew

This group of volunteers donates its time and talents to help senior adults and single moms who need a helping hand with "around-the-house" repairs such as painting, carpentry, electrical, plumbing and general "fix-it" jobs.
Meets at various times as needed. Contact Rich Alexander.

Burnt Offerings

The Burnt Offerings dinner is an annual event for men. We have been doing this men’s event for many years in October. It is a casual, purely social event with great food and conversation. 


Our talented chefs are men of the church and the fare would be classified as “guy food.” Most of the men who attend this dinner have come for several years and we recognize those in our church who have been members for more than 35 years. That said, first-timers join us every year.


This year’s Burnt Offering again was at Kirk Ergang’s home. It is a great opportunity to get to know other men. The timing of the Bears game overlapped with our event so we could cheer them on in the second half of the game. Don’t miss it in 2020! Contact Mike Castner 

Men's Fall Retreat

The Men’s Fall Retreat is a time of fellowship, learning, sharing and growing closer to each other and to God in our common walk in faith. 


We often utilize Covenant Harbor Christian Retreat Center in Lake Geneva Wis.; however, we have also had the retreat in Libertyville. 


The format has ranged from one speaker/one topic for a day and a half to a panel of speakers on one theme. This has proven to be a popular program pulling together men of all ages of the congregation and their friends. Typically the retreat is in early November. Contact Mike Castner
