Men of Grace

A group of men who are trying to live their lives as Jesus lived.
We meet weekly and explore issues men face, such as: Our design, our stories, our traps, our work, our marriages and our children.
In this group we are learning to: reject passivity, accept responsibility, lead courageously and invest eternally.

We also do breakfast events, BBQ’s, and community volunteering with a homeless ministry.

Men’s Fellowship Events

Men’s Retreat

For many years, the men of Grace, usually with men from several more church communities, get away for a weekend retreat.  They’re usually in March, and our favorite retreat center is Palomar Christian Conference Center on Palomar Mountain.   We worship, we participate in challenging and inspiring Bible talks, we pray, we play, and we take advantage of all the recreational activities at the conference center (Palomar includes skeet shooting with shotguns, rifle range, archery range, zip line, horse back riding, hiking, and more).  Keep watching this web page for announcements for the 2024 retreat.
