Men's Ministry

Welcome to McKernan Men’s Ministry.  We exist to provide a safe place for men of all ages to gather for fun, friendship, encouragement, discipleship, and an avenue to give back to the people and world around us.  Join us this semester as we offer the following opportunities to gather as men.

Discipleship:

This semester we will be using material from CORE for Men. You can join in on both or just one, but we’d love for you to join us as we grow together.

CORE for Men is a tool that will give a man connection with his brothers, permission to be real, confidence in who he is, and vision for what he’s for. These studies are designed to be gone through with a group of guys. There has never been a more critical time to be equipped with the tools you need to win the battle over your heart and future. These CORE studies will give you and the other men in your group the space to show up just as you are without judgment, be open about your struggles with each other, and find freedom to discover who God says you are. You will be invited to step out of shame and isolation and encouraged to step into your God-given purpose!

CORE for Men: Transformed

God longs for you to be transformed into His image, and one of the most effective methods of becoming like Christ is to be in community with like-minded brothers. In this five-session video Bible study, you will hear stories from six well-known men who have faced real-life challenges and renewed their minds through God’s Word and the brotherhood of other men. Sign Up for this study here.

When: Wednesday nights 7:00-9:00pm

Dates: November 10,17; December 1, 8, 15

Cost: $15.00

 

 

Men’s Retreat

  • Make plans now for the annual Alberta Baptist Association Men’s Retreat March 4-6, 2022, out at Camp Caroline. More details to come but make space in your calendar today for this great weekend with other men from McKernan and churches in Alberta. 

Fun:

Do you like to watch sports on TV but no one else in your house likes to? Well, plan to join us at the church for our CFL & NHL Sports Nights to watch some sports together. These nights are for those who love, like, tolerate or have never watched football or hockey before in their life to gather and enjoy the company of other men from McKernan and watch a game on the big screen.  Snacks are sure to be served. 

  • Saturday, October 16 – 7:45pm: Edmonton Oilers vs. Calgary Flames (in the Chapel)
  • Saturday, November 13 – 4:45pm: Edmonton Elks vs. Saskatchewan Rough Riders (in the Hospitality Area)
  • Saturday, November 27 – 4:45pm: Edmonton Oilers vs. Vegas Golden Knights (in the Hospitality Area) 

Friendship & Encouragement:

Definitely Not Salad Nights

Definitely Not Salad Nights are back! Join us as we gather as men to eat, build friendships and encourage one another.  Each month we will gather at a different location to try food that your doctor might not agree with – ok, maybe not quite that drastic, but join us as we explore different culinary treats. 

  • Monday, October 18 (Location & Time TBD)
  • Thursday, November 18 (Location & Time TBD)
  • Monday, December 6 (Location & Time TBD) 

Giving Back:

If we stop and take the time to look around us, we quickly realize that we have much to be thankful and grateful for. But not everyone can say that. This year we hope to offer different opportunities for you to serve or give back to the world around us. 

Edmonton Food Bank

The need is for volunteers to help build food hampers, sort food, and provide other warehouse support. Currently a maximum of 10 volunteers at a time can serve. Please sign-up to make sure there is a space for you. 

Saturday, October 23 (9am – Noon)

Saturday, November 27 (9am – Noon)

Potential Missions Trip

Plans are also being worked on for a possible men’s ministry mission trip to Camp Falcon Rock in Romania. If all goes well, this might be sometime between March – May 2022.  More details will be provided as they become available.
