Men’s Grill & Chill
The men of Fellowship are getting together June 7th, 6:00 p.m. Men need other men in their lives challenging, sharpening, and encouraging them! 
Too often, we do not take the critical time to spend with other Godly men in meaningful ways. This is a great opportunity to connect while growing in our mission of making disciples. If you are new to Fellowship, join us! If you have been at Fellowship, come meet new people and help sharpen one another.  RSVP to men@fellowshipconway.org.
