Welcome! Here at Grace Bible Church of Oxford we believe in fellowship. This page is dedicated to keeping you informed on the latest men’s Bible studies, upcoming fellowship events, and outreach opportunities.
In step with Proverbs 27:17, the purpose of the men’s ministry is to sharpen and strengthen the men of Grace Bible through God’s Word, fellowship, encouragement, and accountability.
Spring Men's Retreat
Please make plans to join us on March 22-23, 2024 for our spring retreat in Moscow, TN. Our speaker will be Scott Benjamin who left a successful sales career in response to God’s call to church planting. He is an engaging speaker with an unusual depth of life experience from which to challenge us as men. Over the course of two sessions, Scott will address the themes of suffering, parenting, and marriage, and we will have time for Q&A at the end of each session. The registration cost of $95/person includes both lodging on Friday night and all meals (Friday dinner; Saturday breakfast and lunch). Please note that the deadline to sign up is March 6.
Current Fellowship Opportunities
Monthly Fellowship and Discussions: Once per month, on Friday nights at 6:00 p.m., the men at Grace gather at the church for food, fellowship, and discussion of some topic relevant to our lives or to simply fellowship with one another over a meal and some activity (e.g., board/card games, pickleball, etc.). Here are the dates for the coming year (2024): January 26, February 23, March 22 (Men's Retreat), April 19, and May 17. The link to RSVP for these meetings is posted in the bulletin and newsletter ahead of each event. If you need the link to RSVP for a specific one, please e-mail email@example.com.
Third Thursdays: Every third Thursday of the month, at noon, the men of Grace Bible meet to discuss a biblical, theological, or apologetic topic and have lunch together. These meetings take place in the church gym. Bring your own lunch, and we’ll provide drinks. Through the end of 2024, we are looking at "The Hard Sayings of Scripture," trying to rightly interpret and apply some of the most difficult passages of Scripture (at first glance).
Men's Bible Studies: We have a weekly men’s Bible study at the church on Thursdays, one at 6:00 a.m. and one at noon (same content at two different times). J.D. leads most of these, and C.J. fills in occasionally. These are "open invitation," so feel free to just show up. We take a break during the months of December and January, as well as May to July. For other men’s Bible study offerings, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
