Men of Messiah – It is somewhat ironic that Messiah’s men’s fellowship group calls themselves the MoMs but so it is. The group is led by good-humored friends and fellow church members Mark Zesinger and Pete Woods. It started a few years back when the pair would occasionally meet up for a post-work beer at one of Madison’s new local breweries, and share the joys and concerns of family, work, and church life. They decided that other MLC men might enjoy such Christian fellowship, and that led to the first MoMs meeting on April 28, 2016, at Old Black Bear brewpub in downtown Madison.
The very informal group of a dozen (or so) men meet on the 4th Tuesday of the month at 5:30 p.m. The meetings are casual and newcomers and friends are encouraged! Locations vary and are announced a few weeks prior via e-mail and MLC E-News. The group occasionally will meet at member’s homes. There’s no need to RSVP; just show up and stay as long or short as you have time and Christian fellowship to share. Mark and Pete welcome suggestions for new places to meet, or new activities, service projects, or events to do. (Top Golf, a Men’s Retreat, Fishing, Bowling, etc.) Contact Mark or Pete if interested.
The men will continue to meet through the summer as schedules permit. Their next meeting will be May 22. The location will be announced via Messiah’s E-News.
