For years, there have been men’s breakfast groups at the various churches in town. There was a men’s breakfast group at the Power House when Promise Keepers was active here.
In the last several months, there has been an effort to bring the various church men’s breakfast groups together for fellowship, prayer and sharing. This has been the core of the Men of Faith group that now meets on the second Saturday of every month.
The sites are alternating between the Methodist Church, The Power House and the Center Point Church.
This Saturday, Feb. 14, the Men of Faith breakfast group will meet at the Methodist Church at 8 a.m. John Ranson, one of our newly-elected county commissioners, is our guest speaker. March 14 we will meet at the Center Point Church and April 11 we will meet at the Power House.
The purpose of the group is to transcend the barriers that seem to separate the various denominations in this community. Our hope is that, together, we can present a positive influence to those in the community and at the same time provide help to those in need.
We have a free will collection of $5 to help cover the cost of the food and provide money to fund some of our projects. For the last several months we have had between 50 and 60 men come to the breakfast and have speakers talk about their missionary service over in China. Brad Cochennet, CEO of the Pagosa Mountain Hospital, talked about the past, present and future of the hospital. Last Saturday, the men’s group hosted a breakfast for the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization.
Please attend, even if you are not affiliated with a church in town. The food is good and you’ll be surprised at how many people you know there. Bring a friend and we especially encourage those with sons to bring them. For those on a schedule, our meetings are usually over by 9:30 a.m.
