The objective of Iron Sharpens Iron is to disciple and equip the men of CCLC in their roles as men of God, whether married, single, older, younger. We seek to provide a venue for modeling the life of Christ to men. We seek to do this through teaching, fellowship, and service; providing opportunity for fostering spiritual friendships and developing discipling relationships, so that men can grow in conformity to Christ, specifically in their roles as men.
The rationale for this is simple. Men, married or single, often live isolated from the active fellowship of other Christian men. Proverbs 27.17 says, “Iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” The principle given here is that men need the encouragement, teaching, fellowship, and modeling of the Christian life from other men.
Iron Sharpens Iron meets at various times throughout the month. We do service projects, pray together and enjoy fellowship (sometimes while sweating).
