Men of Grace

At Men of Grace, you will find men who are actively seeking after God’s purpose and power in their lives. Through group teaching, local breakfast meetings, small group time, onsite basketball leagues and off-site cycling rides, we equip men to discover who they are in becoming disciples of Jesus and how to launch themselves and each other into the kingdom. These men do life together and, as we say at Grace, “get after it.”

Fight Club

146th Street: Begins Friday, August 21 at Midnight in SME

Fight Club is a 12-week journey during which men are required to compete weekly challenges within the context of community and accountability. A 3-strike rule applies to all challenges. These challenges change weekly and cover spiritual, relational and physical assignments along with Scripture memory and many opportunities to try something new, sometimes intimidating, sometimes just for fun. The first gathering will be held at midnight, Friday night August 21 in Student Ministries East. For more information, contact Bob Loy at or Mike Whitesell at Men who join are asked to sign the Fight Club creed and commit to living by the Fight Club Guidelines. More information can be found at You do not need to register.

Events & Retreats

Unplugged Retreat

Fridays: October 23 & November 20
Unplug from the world and spend a day reconnecting with God in a directed personal retreat where you can listen, reflect, rest and restore your soul. We start by introducing tools for connecting with God, then you choose how to use your sacred time alone. Held at a nearby retreat center, you have access to spiritual exercises including a Prayer Labyrinth and Stations of the Cross. The day includes lunch, group debrief and access to personalized spiritual direction. The directed part of retreat lasts until 1:00 p.m. If you want to continue your personal time with God, the Retreat Center is reserved and available for your use until 5:00 p.m. Please register for this event using your Grace account.
