United Methodist Men
Meetings are held every third Thursday of each month at 6:30 pm in room G-111 at the church, except during the summer months of June, July and August, when the meetings become breakfast meetings and are held at a local restaurant. The UMM Chaplain, Jim Draper, always has a short devotional message that he brings at that time and a delicious dinner is served at each business meeting as well. There is a speaker at most monthly meetings to help educate the men and keep them up to date on community affairs and charities that may need their help.
All men of the church are always welcome and encouraged to attend any of the meetings and activities and you do not have to be a member to participate. Please email Bruce Helmbrecht, or call him at 789-0667, three days before the meeting you will be attending so that he can order enough food for everyone.
Current officers and telephone numbers for the 2011-2012 term are:
President – Roy Satterwhite – 798-8490
Some of our events taking place throughout the year include:
Methodist ministry with men started over 200 years ago when John Wesley began a campaign for the souls of men. At Oxford University, Mr. Wesley worked with a group of young men realizing the great need for Christian fellowship and banded together to form the Holy Club. Since that time the Holy Club fundamentals have continued and have evolved through the years to what is now the United Methodist Men, or UMM.
