The Companionship - Jan/Mar ‘23


A quarterly newsletter for the Men’s Missions and Ministries (MMM) of First Baptist Church of Warsaw (FBCW).

What is MMM?

MMM provides opportunities for men to meet, unite, and grow in our church, which will allow us to celebrate and spread the “Good News” of Christ Jesus amongst each other and the community.

MMM encourages men to be their best, promoting right action, responsibility, and the fulfillment of duty in the service of the highest Christian ideals.

Proverbs 18:1 – A man who isolates himself seeks his own desires; he rages against all wise judgment.

Past Event(s):

18 MAR: MMM hosted a Men’s Community Prayer Breakfast

The breakfast consisted of pancakes, sausage links, scrambled eggs, coffee, orange juice, and milk.

It was a huge success!

About 35 men from the surrounding churches attended. The farthest away was from Osceola.

A huge shout out to the men that volunteered, in no specific order: Jim Avilla - head cook, Ken Rullo, Don Hart, Gary Jarrett, Chuck Daffron, Jeremy Troester, and Pastor Tom.


Hebrews 10:24-25 - And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.


25 APR – 1 MAY: Jeremy drove FBCW’s van and assisted with Fellowship Baptist Association’s mission team to Pine Bluff, AR.







General Information:

This is the first edition of The Companionship as a test to see if it is wanted or needed. Church funds were not used and are not planned to be used.

The goal is to have a dedicated format to:

  • share information
  • coordinate events
  • plan events
  • provide goodwill

MMM is seeking ideas and thoughts about having routine bible study / meetings for men of FBCW. Please submit your ideas to Jeremy Troester - in person, by phone, or email.

MMM is looking for a volunteer as Assistant Coordinator. His role will be to help manage and coordinate events…it’s pretty simple.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 – Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to him that is alone when he falls, for he has no one to help him up.
