More details: The Men’s class is a casual group focused on fellowship and sharing of opinions on current events primarily in the sports realm.  There is a lot of conversation on a wide variety of sports topics including our weekly scoop on the developments within the U of F Men’s Basketball program from head coach Charlie Ernst.  Regular attendance is encouraged but not required as we take a methodical approach to completing the book and associated study.  All are welcome to join, rejoin or visit.
