Knights of Columbus present: Back to the Basics Men’s Conference

Saturday, September 16th from 8:15 am to 5:00 pm

All men are welcome!

In a busy and chaotic world, it’s easy for men to fall into the trap of “just going through the motions.” It’s good to slow down and go back to the basics or fundamentals in all areas of our life. In Revelation, we find the church at Ephesus needed returning to the basics. In Rev 2:4-5, they were encouraged to:

  • Remember their first love
  • Repent, or stop doing what they were doing, and
  • Repeat or do their first works again

This advice really does have application in all areas of life. “Do your first works.” It is not enough to stop doing harmful things. You must be proactive and believe in the fundamentals. If we find ourselves struggling in any area, the solution is often found by returning to the basics.

Course Description: We will go “back to the basics” and review the Four Pillars of Every Relationship; the Creed (holding on to the faith), Sacraments (expressing the faith), the Moral Life (living faith), and Prayer (praying faith).

Instructors: Father Edmund, Dominic Salomone, Stephen Drees

Facilitator: Tom Melton (our Grand Knight)

*Please note: instructors may change depending on schedules. Times of class are flexible based on the style of instruction; the facilitator will monitor and keep the class fluid.

CORINTHIANS 9:11-12 ...  This a good reminder of reasons to get involved. You are being enriched in every way for all generosity, which through us produces thanksgiving to God, for the administration of this public service is not only supplying the needs of the holy ones but also overflowing in many acts of thanksgiving to God. - Tom Melton
