FCC Men - Header

FCC Men is a ministry aimed to give the guys of First Christian Church opportunities to connect with other men. We want to equip you to be the man God has called you to be. The Bible reminds us of one of God’s key provisions for achieving this goal: other men.

As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.

Men's Retreat


FRIDAY, MARCH 23 AT 7PM - SATURDAY, MARCH 24 AT 3PM

We are so excited for the 18th annual Men’s Retreat. OK — it’s actually the second annual, but 18th makes it sound much more official. Men ages 16 and up are invited to join us for an awesome overnight retreat on the balmy shores of Camp Warren in Decatur. Connect with other men and discuss topics important to a man’s growth and development. We’ll also have paintball, fishing, ziplining, great food, and games led by none other than Dwayne Lumberjackson. Cost is $50, which includes lodging, meals, and activities. Register by Tuesday, March 20. Questions? Contact Jonathan at jgrunden@firstdecatur.org or 217.875.3350.

There are many important relationships in a man's life, and none deserve more care, focus, and investment than his relationship with his wife. A man'smarriage is meant to be an incredible source of energy, joy, and intimacy. Whether your marriage feels hopeless and numb or is thriving and exciting, this class is for you because it looks at what God says about the whole thing. It lays out an inspiring picture of God's vision for marriage that will changeeverything if you're “stuck” and will encourage you if you're already thriving.

Men's Small Groups

Ten + Men


SERVING TOGETHER TO HELP THOSE IN NEED
You can join TEN + MEN! Serving teams (comprised of 3-5 men) are called on in times of need for people in our church and community (e.g. a single parent with a few handy man projects; one of our seniors needing assistance winterizing their home; an “Adopt A Block” family needing repairs). When a need is brought to the attention of the church, we can call on your team. From there, your team sets up the date and time that works for you to “serve together.” To volunteer, contact Brad Bjerke at men@firstdecatur.org or 217.864.1472.

If you are (or know of) a widow, single parent, senior, special needs, or have a unique situation where FCC MEN can help with a project (handy man, clean up, etc.), click here:
