The Northeastern Presbyterian Men continue to be an effective Christian voice in our church’s efforts to minister to both the congregation and the community. The men’s group supports projects and programs within our church, such as the Northeastern Higher Education Scholarship Program, the Sunday Church School, the Food Pantry, and the Wylie Whisonant Friends of Music Society.
Meetings are held on the third Saturday of each month (except in July and August) at 9:00 a.m.
REGULARLY SCHEDULED ACTIVITIES
We plan and provide leadership in an annual Men’s Day/Father’s Day worship service., which is held on the third Sunday in June. Each year a male chorus is formed and rehearses at least four times in order to support the service with music. Occasionally the men are asked to come forward and rededicate themselves to serve Christ’s church.
We actively participate in the Mid-Atlantic Synod Men’s Conference, which is held annually at Massanetta Springs Conference Center in Virginia. Men from other Presbyteries in our synod gather for three days for worship, spiritual development and fellowship.
The word IXUS (pronounced”ick-thus) means “fish” in Greek. But the Greek letters also spell out a secret message Jesus Christ of God, Son and Savior! The I IXUS symbol has long been used by PRESBYTERIAN MEN and was added to the circle at the time of the 1983 reunion to signify our unity in the new Presbyterian Church (U.S.A) and our unity with Christians worldwide.

and to build an inclusive, caring community of women that strengthens the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and witnesses to the promise of God’s kingdom.
