Our Men’s Ministry breakfast is an easy and fun way to get to know some of the other guys in the church. Once a month we gather at a local restaurant for breakfast to chat and deepen our relationships in a casual setting. We hope that you will plan on joining us. Restaurant: TBD. Questions? Contact Daryl Foelske.
A sign-up sheet is now out at the Welcoming Center. If you haven’t been to a retreat before this is the one to attend. And if you have been to others…. This is the one not to miss! Our theme this year is “Balancing Life.” As with other retreats, the location is our beautiful UCC camp: La Foret in the Black Forest area by Colorado Springs. We will gather together Friday evening, and depart after worship on Sunday. There will be lots of food, fun, and of course fellowship. Our cost this year is $120.00, and scholarships are available to those who need them. We hope you can make it, it is always a fulfilling and enjoyable time! Contact: Daryl Foelske, Kane McNeil.

Thanks to everybody who stopped by the tables in the Fellowship Hall on Sunday to indicate their interest in new small groups. If you couldn’t make it on Sunday but are intrigued by any of the three opportunities we presented (“Outdoor Adventurers,” “Pooped-Out Parents,” and “Food Friends”), we’ll have sheets out on the Welcome Center for you to put your name down. We’ll also be reaching out to people on the lists to see if we can get some groups together and make these ideas a reality. Contact: Susan Rumley.
The men of Lakewood UCC will once again break their fast together, this time at the Garrison Street Grill (608 Garrison St.). They’ll meet half an hour early, at 8:30 a.m., so anyone who wants to can volunteer at the Action Center later that morning. So, if you’re a man and you like breakfast, join them! If you’re man who doesn’t like breakfast, well, we don’t even know what to say to you. Contact: Daryl Foelske.
You might remember “Small Group Sunday” from a couple months ago. Ruth Rueter pointing a gigantic arrow at Susan Rumley? The bulletin board draped in gold lamé? See, you do remember. Anyway, several ideas for new small groups emerged from our post-worship discussion that day. The top three were a young families group (“Pooped-Out Parents”), a hiking/camping group (“Outdoor Adventurers”), and an in-home dinner group (“Food Friends”). If you’re intrigued by any of these groups, please join us in the Fellowship Hall after worship. We’ll have a table for each group, so anyone who’s interested can talk, share contact information, and maybe even schedule a first meeting! Contact: Susan Rumley.
Men of Lakewood UCC, we know you’ll be spending most of your day at the Carr Street Market, but we also know you’ll need sustenance for all that bargain-shopping. How can a man shop without nourishment? He cannot. So join us for breakfast at Valley Inn (1997 S. Wadsworth Blvd.) as we eat, chat, and prepare our minds and our stomachs for the day ahead. All are welcome and no RSVP is required. Contact: Daryl Foelske.
This year’s Men’s Retreat at La Foret will take place Friday, May 13, through Sunday, May 15. We’ll kick off the weekend with an informal gathering Friday evening at 8:00, then have a mixture of activities and free time throughout the weekend, finishing up Sunday morning at 11:00. Registration forms are available on the Welcome Center. Please fill one out, then place it with your $30 deposit in the white dropbox outside the church office. The remainder of the $100 cost will be due May 1. If money is an issue, ask Curt Preston about need-based scholarships. We can’t wait to see y’all at La Foret! Contact: Kane McNeill.
