Men’s Cracker Barrel – Saturday, November 9th

Greetings Brothers in Christ,

Greg Mourad has again kindly agreed to host at his home this Saturday, November 9th. The plan is to have the fire going and to begin around 6:00pm, but please feel free to come and go as you can that evening to enjoy a time of fellowship with our brothers in Christ. We know it is also the same evening as the youth ministries sponsored adult night out, so we understand if you already have plans with your spouses or family.  Above all, I hope you each are doing well and having a great week.

If there is anyone you can think of that I missed in this email, please feel free to pass this along as well.  If you get a chance please take a moment to RSVP if you can (you are always welcome even if you are unable to RSVP) to myself, or Greg at  We meet the second Saturday of each month, so be sure to mark your calendars!    Once again I hope you all are well and look forward to seeing you soon.

Check 6


I recently saw a license plate on a car owned by what must be a great American: CH46PLT. As a former CH-46 helicopter pilot, I am sure that the owner of this car must be a pretty good guy. I saw a license plate yesterday on a car that must be owned by a fighter pilot: CHKMY6. This fellow aviator reminded me of a sermon I heard recently about the 3 R’s of functioning as the Body of Christ. 1 Corinthians 12:26 says, “If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.”

Do you have a Check 6 partner? If not, get intouch with Chris Braddy and he will help you connect with a man (or two) who live or work nearby. Go for it!

Your brother
in Christ,
