United Methodist Men
The purpose of the United Methodist Men is helping men to grow in Christ, so others can know Christ.
The Martin First United Methodist Men are an active group who meet at 6:45 am on the first and third Wednesday of each month for breakfast and a devotion in the Fellowship Hall. In addition to these weekly meetings, the Methodist Men also participate in a number of annual projects such as collecting $25,000 for Hunters for the Hungry, Potato Drops for the Society of St. Andrew (which benefited WeCare Ministries and Reelfoot Rural Ministries), collecting funds and eyeglasses for Project 20/20, purchasing Bible Kits for troops in Iraq, visiting shut-ins, Youth Hunt in October and co-hosting the Prayer Breakfast for the Soybean Festival. The United Methodist Men contribute greatly to the mission of Martin First United Methodist Church. Please join us on the first and third Wednesdays at 6:45 am!
We believe it is not enough to be a “member” of a church. God is asking more of us “for the living of these days.” To this end, we are seeking to recover our Wesleyan heritage of “class meetings” or “covenant groups” which meet regularly in small numbers to give account of “how it is with our souls.” As Sunday School classes are usually curriculum-based, so covenant groups are opportunities to “watch over one another in love.” Their focus isn’t church membership but discipleship, “learning Christ” (Eph. 3:20). More information is available by calling the church office and speaking with Kathy Smith.
Our Bible Study meets on Tuesdays of the month at 10:00 in the fellowship hall. The group reaches out to those who are widowed, divorced or single. The Bible Study is led by Bro. Jim Rea. The morning also includes an interesting program and a light lunch (donation).
Meets on the 2nd and 4th Mondays each month in the Fellowship Hall. Lunch is provided (donation). A Bible study along with a program of interest is included. The program starts at 10:00.
