In the Autumn of 1981, Pastor Dick Dewsnap, along with 5 other men, determined to meet regularly to sharpen and encourage one another. The next Spring, March 1982, they invited regional Village Missions church men to Ocean Park for an overnight retreat. That was the launch of a ministry that continues to this day. Each week men assemble for breakfast, fellowship, worship and Bible ministry. Rain or shine, Tuesday or holiday, they gather for edification and encouragement; there are periodic service opportunities, when we give our time, talent and treasure that other may see good work and glorify our Father in heaven (Matthew 5:16).
Men of The Cross meets Tuesday mornings at 7:00 a.m.
