3Crosses Men

We believe in pursuing the heart of God. We look to the very Words of God to "read the direction of God" and how our hearts should beat each day concerning our families, wives, work, communities, ministries, and Church.

If you're late, no problem; if you leave early, no problem. 

We confront reality, we come together in community with other men, in order to encourage each other, pray for one another and get into God's word together. This is all for the purpose of strengthening each other - so that God can point to us as examples of His goodness! It's a powerful thing that happens when we re-align ourselves with the Holy Spirit who's always at work!

➤ SUMMER BREAK -- Will Resume September 10th & 11th


➤ SUMMER BREAK -- Will Resume September 11th

   

WHY: In the life of a surfer, Dawn Patrol dictates how that surfer's day will unfold.

  • Dawn Patrol is the first thing a surfer goes to when he rises. It's the report that comes out over the internet or by word of mouth that describes the conditions of a certain break and whether it's worth the trip to that spot so he can "catch a wave." It reports on wind direction and speed, swell speed and direction, tide and times, crowd conditions and water quality. You could say that Dawn Patrol is the first beat of a truly dedicated surfer's day and that all other beats play off that first one.
  • Dawn Patrol in the life of a man pursuing the heart of God should be no different. We don't look to surf reports to dictate how our day will go; instead, we look to the very Words of God to "read the direction of God" and how our hearts should beat that day concerning our families, wives, work, communities, ministries, and Church.
  • We meet at dawn (or close to it) every Wednesday morning from 6:00am - 7:00am in the Children's Ministry Center (CMC), starting our day with each other reading the swells of culture and learning how we should live in those waves as men being directed by the Spirit and in His word. We start with some light grub, Verve and Peet's coffee, and laughter. We move to an interactive short Bible study with table interaction and application. We end with exhortations and prayer.
  • If you're late, no problem; if you leave early, no problem. There will be a take-home Dawn Patrol study for the next seven days of the week for those who care to do background study while diving deeper into the text.

➤ SUMMER BREAK -- Will Resume September 10th

   

There's something that happens to a man at the end of most days: he starts to stress over what he didn't "get to" along with getting frustrated over "something" that happened earlier in the day. There's also something that happens to a man on Wednesdays, the pressures of the week keep building along with the reality that much of the week is over and he can't quite "get it all done".

  • There's a remedy! We at 3crosses have Dusk Patrol, one of our two weekly men's gatherings on Wednesday evenings at 6:30pm to confront that reality. We come together when the day is closing in community with other men, in order to encourage each other, pray for one another and get into God's word together. This is all for the purpose of strengthening each other! Not so much for our own benefit, but for the benefit of the folks around us due to the joy that accompanies men in Godly community; so that God can point to us as examples of His goodness!
  • It's a powerful thing that happens when men come to Dusk Patrol to meet with other men to get encouraged. They get a chance to re-align themselves with the Holy Spirit who's always at work cleaning up the first part of the week and trying to guide us through the rest of the week graciously.
  • We hope you will join us each Wednesday evening at 6:30 sharp till 8 p.m. in the CMC for a little dinner, laughter, prayer, a challenging interactive word from scripture, and incredible fellowship.
