2010 Fall North West Men's Rally

On Saturday, September 11, 2010 the men of the North West District of Disciples Men met at First Christian Church of Decatur.  Lonnie Sapp, President of the FCC Decatur Men and Joe Austin of Peachtree Corners Christian Church and the director of the NE District welcomed everyone and made a number of announcements including encouraging the men to attend the Men's retreat at Christmount this coming March.

Will Purdue, President to Georgia Disciples Men called the roll and then introduced Rev. Ray Miles, regional minister who gave an update on work around the region.  After an offering which collected over $110 for the Disciples Men Work Fund, William Garner, Minister of Music at FCC Decatur led us in singing a few rousing hymns.

Rev. Percy Johnson, Pastor of God's City of Refuge Christian Church delivered a thought provoking message on "Restoring and Reclaiming the Masculine Spirit in a Postmodern Culture and Church."  Percy pointed out that we as a church are not being relevant to today's young men . . . we aren't engaging them.

Following a benediction by Rev. James Brewer-Calvert of FCC Decatur, the group adjourned to the lawn with candles for an observance and prayer on 9/11.

Lunch was served by Decatur First - some excellent BBQ, Brunswick stew, salad and ice cream over browines for desert.  The 22 present all enjoyed the program and the fellowship!
