Real Men Study the Bible

Attention, men: If you're looking for a special, men-only small group experience, you can find it at 8:30 am Saturdays at The New Room Community Church Men's Bible Study. Each week, men gather at The New Room for breakfast and Bible study. The current study is titled, "What Does God Want from Me."

"The gathering kicks off with breakfast," says regular Norman Madawo. "We eat well, so we can learn well."


The New Room is at 10061 Whitehurst, Suite 100, in the Skillman Crossing Shopping Center, behind Taco Bueno and next door to Cici's Pizza
