United Methodist Men

Who We Are: We are a group of men united in purpose: to join in fellowship, in mission work, and in building up and supporting each other in Christian friendship. We also have a lot of fun!

When We Meet: Bethany UMM meets the first Tuesday of every month at 7:00. All Methodist men are invited to the meetings…you don’t have to wait to be invited, just come to a meeting!

Ministries We Are Involved In: The UMM is involved in many ministries and projects. Our primary project is sponsoring the Jake M. Bauer Scholarship, an annual college scholarship that is given to deserving students from within the Bethany congregation. This is funded entirely from the interest earned on a United Methodist Foundation Endowment started many years ago. We organize several fundraisers to support the renovations of our new Fellowship Center, including selling BBQ and preparing pancake dinners. We also sponsor an annual memorial breakfast and participate in work projects around the church property.
