Dear MTM Brothers, May you be blessed and encouraged by our vision to minister to our
brothers and show them by example, the benefits of being Christian leaders.

Our MTM Annual Day this year will be on June 12th, 3:30 pm. We truly have reason to celebrate!

The goals for this year are:
• Coordinate the Worship Service on third Sunday (Male Emphasis Sunday) up and until the Sermon, including lifting God up through our songs.

• Our Annual Day Askings is $200.00 for each man that can, or as much as possible, so that we can reach our goal of $2,000.00

The askings can/should be given between now and June 5th. Mark your envelope MTM
Annual Day. In addition, don’t forget our monthly dues of $10.00, which is used for
expenses of our monthly meets, i.e. breakfast and other supplies.

• All men are encouraged to attend our Annual MTM Retreat September 9. 10, & 11, 2016. The Retreat offers opportunities for Christian fellowship of men with other men, Discussions of Stewardship, men’s health and other group activities. It is important that the Ministry to Men be a strong and supportive ministry to men in the church and community and that we boldly step up to the plate as leaders in our church, our families and our communities. God has given us our marching orders and His blessings. Let us move forward in faith and love! Yours in Christ Jim Johnson Bethel MTM Coordinator
