Fellowship Church Outreach for Men
Solid Rock Men's Fellowship has been birthed by the Fellowship Church. The first event was an afternoon of watching Nascar races and the Bills football game.
This group was organized to meet the spiritual and social needs of men. The group will meet in the "man-cave" (blacksmith shop) at 6389 Main Road, Portland, and is being headed by Dave Ball and Denny Carlson. A missions outreach of adopting a local family is being considered.
All men of the community ages 14-106 are welcome to attend. Call Dave at 785-1129 or Denny at 785-7656 for more information. Refreshments will be served.
On Saturday evening, a harvest party will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Fellowship Church. Pizza and other food will be served.
