The Men of Faith is a fraternity of Christian men enjoying fellowship with one another, providing service to the Church, and reaching out to the community and youth. Men of Faith understand that young men, women, and youth need real Christian men in their lives. As sons of God, it is our supreme honor and duty to lay down our life for our wives in love, to discipline and lovingly guide our children, and to seek God's face by immersing ourselves in the study of His Word. By doing this, we pray that God would be pleased to influence and transform the culture around us, and bring glory to His name.
Meetings: Join the Men of Faith for breakfast on the first saturday of the month at 8am in the double-classroom. Contact Monte Patterson for more details at 352.279.5985 or MPFEPC@aol.com. The Men of Faith also lead various activities such as the annual Rays Game, Annual Yard Sale, Church Work Days, Men with Tool Belts, and special help projects as requested. All men are welcome!

Because of our sinful nature, all men will inevitably fall short of God's standard for Biblical manhood. But will we not strive for righteousness, holiness and perfection? Yes, of course we will. And by the grace of God we will be victorious. It is not our own strength that wins the battle. It is the LORD, strong and mighty, who goes before us! We are the MEN of FAITH.
