2020 Golf Tournament Highlights!!

A Perfect Evening!

The weather was perfect as over 60 men got together at Heritage Pointe for an evening of great roast beef, lots of conversation and a very inspiring message from Dr. Phil Nordin.
Phil talked about the importance of using the correct words in how we express ourselves. In particular the words: Maybe,  Might,  Should,  Could, Would and Must. These words can often lead us to a sense of defeat and demoralization when we use them in the language of failure. Phil went on to say, he came to realize that the power source of unworthiness is “Past Failures” The “If Only’s”, the “Should Haves”
This leads us to the question: How do we get beyond the self depreciation that comes from past failures?
There are two changes you can make:
1) Accept that your failure can be progress…..and that your failures will often lead you to good decisions….in other words fail forward.

2) Learn to redirect your focus:

 Focus on who you are, rather than who you are not
 Focus on what you have, rather than what you do not have
 Focus on what you know, rather that what you do not know
 Focus on health rather than pain
 Focus on your abilities rather than your limitations
 Focus on where you are going rather than where you have been

A great message to leave with the men

Thank-you Dr. Phil
“The Ryder Cupsters ” are the New Champs!

  The Ryder Cupsters  (L-R) – Cole Hartung,Garth Hartung,Myles Hamilton,Don Poffenroth
The Ryder Cupsters led a hard fought battle with many other teams hot on their heals.  Coming in @ -8 under par, they nudged past the Duffers who finished up @ -7, while a few other teams finished up @-6. This is the Cupsters fourth victory in the last five years.  Well Done!



2019 Golf Tournament Highlights!!

Despite the drenching rain, four groups managed to finish the course without a dry piece of clothing.  ( “Soaked to the bone “! was one comment ) But that didn’t dampen the evening as over 60 men shared an excellent roast beef dinner and listened to an insightful talk by Pastor Warren Wiebe.

Warren talked about how Life is like golf.  Early in life is like being on the tee box.  The fairway is long and wide.  There are lots of choices.  The consequences of a bad drive or poor decision are usually not too bad. Your second shot / approach shot is similar to middle age.  You must be more accurate and the consequences of a poor decision (in life) can have more severe consequences.   You could end up in the water, a sand trap or thick rough around the green.   In mid life, a poor decision could bring you financial ruin, a divorce or poor health. When you’re on the green and putting is like your finishing/golden years on earth.   You need to be very focused on the goal of (eternal life).  You must be accurate, in direction and effort to sink your putt and you must keep your eyes and mind focused on Heaven and Jesus as we draw close to the finish of our lives.
Thank-you Pastor Warren

While we realize we are free in Christ, we would ask the men to use discretion when deciding on what to drink in the larger group setting, as we don’t know where everyone is at in their journey.
