Second offers many different studies for men who want to learn, discuss, and grow spiritually alongside other men of the church.
AMEN is a rich time of Bible study and fellowship that equips men to be the husbands, fathers, and business or community leaders they are meant to be.
We will spend the Fall of 2023 and Spring of 2024 studying the Gospel of John. Lessons will be taught in rotation by Todd Erickson, Barton Kimbro, and George Robertson. We will meet in the Fellowship Hall on Thursdays at 6:00am beginning September 7. Registration is required ($105 per semester) and includes breakfast and a binder with weekly printed study notes. Breakfast is served at 6:00am, and teaching begins at 6:30.

MEN’S INTENSIVE (MI1)
The purpose of Men’s Intensive is to provide a space where men in this city can grow and be encouraged as we think through and discuss the issues that impact our lives.
Led by Todd Erickson, this new seven-week, discussion-based study is available for all men. We will meet in the College Room on Tuesdays at 6:00am beginning September 12. The registration fee ($30 per semester) includes a notebook with everything you will need. Registration for this session closes on September 6. In order to get the most out of this study, we encourage that you try to come every week. Each week we will look at a different topic under the theme of “Faith, Life, and Work.” See topics below.

SENIOR Men's STUDY
This is a Bible study that is meant to provide a later option for senior men who desire to stay connected outside of Sunday worship/Sunday School times.
Senior Study is available for men 70 years or older this fall. We will meet in room C-310 on Wednesdays at 11:00am beginning September 13. David Bowen will be leading us through an application-oriented study using the Navigator’s Design for Discipleship series. Bookmark Bookstore at Second will have the notebooks, so be sure to pick up Book 1 before the first lesson. If you would like to extend your fellowship time, the kitchen will have lunch at noon that is available to purchase. Feel free to bring a friend!
