New Year’s Resolution

Finally a new blog!   Sorry for the delay.  Actually this is only a mini-blog but I do have 3 blogs in the works so keep a look out for them.

Next week in New Year’s day and many people including Christians see this as an opportunity to start a new habit by making a resolution.  A great resolution to make is to read the Bible in the year.  It takes discipline but it’s doable.  I’ve done it many times.  I find that the daily reading takes up 15 minutes so you can “catch up” by reading for 30 minutes every once in a while.

I’m trying to decide between a few resolutions but reading the Bible and journaling more regularly will probably make the final list for me.  In case it makes it to the top of your list, here are a few books you might find helpful:

Bible in a year books: (I’ve read each of these and can recommend)
                                                   


Complimentary Books:

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Small Group Men’s Bible Studies Forming!!

 Have you desired to just be around a few good friends that know you?  You might share a joke,  or something your kids are going through, or anything in between.  Then you’ve come to the  right place.

We are establishing small groups for the new year.  Small groups are the essence of this ministry and they are what allows us to ‘do life together’.  The setting might be different but we always spend some time in fellowship, Bible study, and prayer.

Interested?  Well, let us know by adding a comment to this post!

>Good Year for the Westchester Men’s Ministry

>
The WMM had a good year in 2009. We hope to have a breakout year in 2010.

First a look back, in 2009 we…

  • had over 10 events including a golf event, hiking, multiple breakfasts and our Christmas dinner.
  • had our first breakfast with Grace Fellowship.
  • had multiple new people join our small groups or attend one of our events.
  • setup a blog, a Facebook group and a Twitter account. We have over 200 followers on Twitter and appear on 6 lists.
  • had nearly 2 dozen men for our Christmas dinner, our largest group yet, including a few new people.
  • just got started!

In 2010, we have big goals!

  1. We feel God is calling us to prepare for the harvest — so we plan to do leadership training
  2. We also feel God wants us to “do” his Word as a group — so we will be coordinating more outreach events.
  3. We will have our first retreat in the early Spring of 2010 (watch for more details)!!
  4. I believe we will have a small group of committed people step up in 2010 that will allow WMM to fulfill the role God intends for it. This may include 501c(3) status and a broader reach in Westchester county.
  5. The spirit of the Westchester Men’s Ministry is to be community based and support multiple churches. So my optimistic goal is to bring leaders from many churches together in 2010 to share our vision to bring hope to the hopeless and strengthen each other!
There are many people to thank for their support in 2009 including Dick Weidenheft, George Holladay, Peter Corfield and Fred Seiler among many others. Thank you guys!
We hope you have a very happy new year. Please pray that God will lead us and protect us because we can do all things through Him who strengthens us and conversely we can do nothing in our own power.
