All guys—young and old—are invited to join us for Men's Group each Sunday at 6 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. We're starting to meet again after breaking for the summer, so this is a great opportunity for you to join us and get involved with a small group here at Avoca. 

We meet weekly on Sunday evenings, and the majority of our time is devoted to Bible study with some opportunity to take on a few worthy projects. There is always a sense of fellowship and discipleship actively taking place. As Proverbs 27:17 states, "As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another" (NIV).

So come join us each week as we help each other grow in our knowledge of God and then put into action the love He is placing in our hearts.
