Below is the background on our Bible Study which is fast approaching our 25th year of fellowship. Thanks be to God!

“The Brave Men” follow Jesus Christ and meet on Friday mornings to study the Bible. Since 1995 God has brought over 900 men across the threshold of the “Barn” into his Embassy of Grace.  On average 75 to 95 men show up on any given Friday at 6:30 a.m. at “the Barn” Aerial view CCGF2at Christ Church at Grove Farm.  We grow from studying the living word of God under the leadership of Dr. Bruce Bickel, and we spend the other six days living out what we’ve learned.  At God’s “embassy” we are taught about the person and work of Christ.  Through this we become “ambassadors” for Christ.  That means we don’t change or add to his message, we reflect his message of reconciliation, love, mercy and grace to those God brings across our paths.

If you desire to know more about what followers of Christ believe and why they believe it, please join us on a Friday morning.  Click here to explore our website to learn more about what God is doing among these men who by the grace of God strive to be brave for his sake and his glory.

Christ Church at Grove Farm, and the Barn, are located at 249 Duff Road, Sewickley, PA 15143. Duff Road is just off of Mt. Nebo Road, accessible from Rt. 79 or Rt. 279, to Camp Horne Road to Mt. Nebo Road. Doors open around 6am; the teaching starts at 6:30am. Afterwards we talk among ourselves as to how we’re going to apply what we just learned.  Some men have breakfast together as a means of continuing the fellowship we have started. (Truth be told we’re all a bunch of cowards but with the transforming love of Christ and the grace of God he is forming us into His Brave Men.)

Listed below are our weekly Newsletters sent out to the Brave Men.  The Newsletter provides a preview of the coming Friday’s teaching with the Lesson Plan, Prayer Requests and Prayer Updates, Terms to Learn from the White Horse Inn, Upcoming Events in our Barn Yard Chatter along with other news worthy items.  Click on the Newsletter below to see what’s going on at the Barn.  You can also connect to our Bible Study Resources by clicking here and find our most recent Bible Study Series.

“May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.”  (Hebrews 13: 20-21)

Grace, Truth and Peace to you.
