The ministry of men in the local church is defined as a core group of men, partnering with their pastor, to invite and initiate spiritual growth opportunities for all men of the church.
Our mission is to support spiritual growth among men, helping men to mature as disciples as they encourage spiritual formation in others.
Our goal is to empower the ministry of Jesus Christ through men within the congregation of the UMC.
Why is men's ministry important?
Men lead others best by modeling Jesus Christ in thoughts, words and deeds.
Spiritual maturity is signified in spiritual reproduction, as the faith of mature disciples passes on in others.
Men growing in Christ become effective spiritual leader in their homes and congregations, working as partners with their spouses and congregational leaders - both lay an clergy.
Spiritually grown men help congregations to become vital and alive.
Everything desired from and through men comes a result of men growing spiritually and maturing as disciples: family blessings, stewardship, service, outreach, prayer, spiritual leadership, lifestyle evangelism, and faithful obedience. Men are foundational to the life and health of the church.
When a man lives daily in surrendered faith, God is honored and many lives are blessed. Transformed hearts are forged only within Christ-centered lives - nothing less is our acceptable offering; nothing less truly reveals Christ.
A group of men meet the first Sunday of each month at 7:30 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall for a hearty breakfast, fellowship and devotional. Each year United Methodist Men sponsor a Christmas Dinner along with the Shepherd's Table where families receive food vouchers, children are given gifts and have the opportunity to have their picture taken with Santa Claus.
