We All Have A Story!
Element 26 is a men's ministry designed to draw men together in pursuit of living a Godly life through service, community and outdoor adventures coupled with transparent conversation that allows each man to share his story. Through this we share accountability and sound Biblical teaching making each other stronger in our faith.
Iron (element 26) is one of the most common elements on Earth. In its purest form, it is relatively soft, however, through the smelting process, or adding of impurities, it is hardened. With enough smelting, steel is created, which is up to 1000 times harder. Once hardened, iron can be used to do great good or great harm.
Like iron, men will face outside influences that will tend to harden us. Also, like iron, this hardening, or toughness, can be used to do great good or great harm. Too many men are forged into anger or bitterness. More men need to be forged in strength and boldness for the kingdom of God.
"As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another."
- Proverbs 27:17
