United Methodist Men

Not all United Methodist Churches have a United Methodist Men's group, but we have a very active group of 20 to 25 men who get together for plenty of laughter and good times.  The monthly breakfast meeting is our core activity.  But these men have a number of other activities as well.  They seem to have always have some sort of service project going.
Contact: Larry Grimm or Rick Denman
We have an email list for reminders and important UMM news,
please email one of the UMM committee members to be added to the list.

Up Coming Dates 2017

Every Friday 6:30 am- Men's Bible Study.  We mention these Friday morning Bible studies often but if you're never been able to attend I want to give some more details about them.  Someone volunteers each week to bring eggs/sausage biscuits and we each chip in to cover his costs.  Don Miller leads our discussion and we go over a few verses each week and have a great discussion.   It goes to approximately 7:30 BUT, we all know how Atlanta traffic is; some of us need to leave earlier than that e.g. 7:00, to get on the road. Come try it sometime!
Sept 2017 - Men's Fall Retreat
*Contact Ed Springer for more information*

THANKSGIVING,  our big community event is here!!

Throughout the month we will need men to assist with communication to the church members, manning tables after services, helping to move the food brought by the congregation, etc.    Joel Ross and Gordon Mosley (be sure to thank these guys) have set up a wonderful project plan to guide us through our Thanksgiving food collection and deliveries.  

We'll have tasks for anyone and everyone who wants to help as we get closer to Thanksgiving.  They will all lead up to the food delivery to the families in our community on the morning of Wednesday November 27.

The Men of the Church visit Murphy Harpst four times a year.
They prepare a meal to be shared with the children, staff and accompanying members of St. Andrew.
They will play games, sing songs or whatever just comes about as long as they are having fun. At their Christmas visit, Santa makes an appearance. This is a great Outreach Opportunity for any age member of the church. The children at Murphy Harpst varies in ages, but most are 5th grade and up.
Allison Cottle brought her daughter, who is 7, to our last visit and she had a wonderful time playing on the playground, playing kickball and listening to many of the children participate is music that was supplied by a members guitar and family.
If you would like to come and experience the lives of others and have some fun, please feel free to contact a UMM member.
