This year we want to give boys a chance to learn more about what it means to be a man while spending time with their dad or favorite guy. So, we are hosting a monthly breakfast focusing on the 7 Virtues of Manhood at school.
Our 7 Virtues of Manhood Breakfasts are for elementary grade boys (1–6) and their dad or favorite guy.
The format will be as follows:
- Start at 7:15 in the fellowship hall and enjoy Chick-Fil-A breakfast around the tables, sitting with boys and men from your son’s grade as much as possible.
- Hear what the virtue means from a 6th grade boy
- Learn the virtue in more detail through a 7 minute lesson from one of our leaders
- Spend the majority of the time working around the table with your boys with age appropriate questions and activities.
- End by 7:55
The boys will be dismissed to chapel from the breakfast. Dads and favorite guys are welcome to join us for chapel from 8:00–8:30 in the sanctuary or depart after breakfast.
Dates for the year:
- Sept 6 - True Friend
- Oct 18 - Humble Hero
- Nov 1 - Servant Leader
- Jan 10 - Pacesetter
- February 7 - Bold Adventurer
- March 20 - Noble Knight
- April 3 - Faithful Follower
Because of the nature of this breakfast, each boy must have a male adult host in order to attend. It is okay for one dad to bring more than just his son(s). A dad, grandad, or family friend can host multiple boys including friends. If a dad/favorite guy is going to be hosting multiple boys, please enter him as part of the group registration, even if that person has already registered with another boy. Be careful not to sign him up for breakfast more than once. For families with special circumstances, please reach out to me and one of the school based mentors will host your son or we can discuss another option.
We look forward to seeing you September 6th.
