Men’s Club

The Men’s Club at Christ the King Church is a group of men from the parish who seek to strengthen the spirituality and fellowship of our members through good works and support of people in need.

 

Meetings are typically held on the first Thursday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in the parish hall.  Pizza, salad, and refreshments are served; occasionally a guest speaker will address the group on a specific topic. Meetings typically last 60–90 minutes. 

All male parishioners are welcome to join the group and/or participate in our events, even if you are not able to attend our meetings. Contact the President or Vice-President for possible meeting changes.

Special Event

The Men's Club presents a special event on October 7, 2021, at 6pm in the parish hall. Members of Christ the King, St Ann's, and the First Congregational Church of Old Lyme are invited to attend.

Guest speaker for the event is Chris George, executive director of IRIS, Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services, a statewide nonprofit agency whose mission is to help refugees and other displaced people establish new lives, strengthen hope, and contribute to the vitality of Connecticut's communities.

IRIS helps newcomers on the road to self-sufficiency by providing lifesaving support during their transition to life in the United States. IRIS offers housing, employment, health, legal, education, and case management services to refugees and immigrants.

Pizza and other refreshments will be served, and there is no charge, but please RSVP so we know how many people to prepare for.  Contact Bob Brinkerhoff, president of the Men's Club to RSVP.

Christ the King Men’s Club is Looking for

“A FEW GOOD MEN”

The Men’s Club invites all interested men to
join us as a new member.

 

We are an active organization that meets once monthly, at 6pm on the first Thursday, to support the needs of both the church and the community. We operate under three guiding principles:

  1. we pray together, encourage retreats, and provide motivational guest speakers.

  2. we raise money and support many charitable organizations and conduct maintenance projects to maintain the church and church grounds.

  3. Socializing; we hold monthly meetings enjoying pizza and camaraderie, and we support numerous church social functions.
