Special Events:

  • Easter Breakfast – each year the men host the annual Easter Breakfast. They’ll cook a great breakfast for both Calvary Chapel and Friends in Christ Church and have it ready by the end of the annual Easter Sunrise Service. Great fellowship for all. Great food!
  • Construction Projects – when we become aware of a need in the church, the men from the Monday night study offer their talents to help where need. Wheelchair ramps, auto repair, stove installation …
  • Men’s Retreat – Each year the men take a weekend to get away and seek the Lord. Our 2019 retreat is scheduled for May 3-5 at Idyllwild Pines Conference Center.  We have lots of fun and share in Bible study, prayer, small groups and great food.
