The Purpose of UMM

The United Methodist Men are a creative, supportive fellowship of men who seek to know Jesus Christ, to serve Him, to grow spiritually and to seek daily to do His will. At Grace, our men’s ministry provides a place where men become “brothers in Christ.” As we become friends and followers we strengthen our role as servant leaders in the home, church, and community.

Programs of UMM

UMM meets eight times a year at 6:30 p.m. on the third Monday evening of the month. (September-November, and January-May). The monthly program starts with a grilled steak or chicken dinner. After the dinner, we come together for prayer, devotional, monthly business and a guest speaker. The meeting adjourns at or before 8:00. All men of the church are invited to be a part of this exciting ministry of Grace. For more information, please contact  Joe Winfield.

Activities of UMM

F3 is Fitness, Fellowship, and Faith: Each leads to the next. Our workouts are free of charge and open to all men. They are held outdoors — rain or shine, heat or cold. Men who participate also lead the workout in a rotating fashion, with no training or certification necessary. Workouts end with a Circle of Trust.

Real Men Read: Men from a wide range of professional backgrounds volunteer to read to elementary school students and promote positive male role models.
 

Project WARM:

Jesus preached and the disciples took action to help widows, orphans and the less fortunate. This is exactly what Grace United Methodist Church did in initiating a Winterization and Repair Ministry, “WARM” program in 2010. The program was sponsored by the United Methodist Men, but quickly became much greater. Over 120 church members, and others, braved cold temperatures in the dead of winter to help widows and less fortunate. Certainly Grace Church is known for its foreign mission efforts throughout the years, but thanks to Reverend Jim Dennis we now have a program that overwhelmingly was successful in changing the lives of over 30 local households in need. Not only did this program help these people who could not help themselves, but it also warmed the hearts of those who participated. Some did work they had skills for, others did work they didn’t realize they could do, and still others gave time, money, and support in so many different ways. We are thankful for the opportunity to be part of WARM, and look forward to another adventure in doing God’s work again in 2018.
