We are now beginning Phase 1 of reopening our church building for our church activities. At the moment outside group meetings are on hiatus, but we hope to further open our facilities soon. The Corona Virus threat may have precipitated the closing of our building, but NOT the church! We have and will continue to serve our community, love our neighbors, make disciples of Jesus Christ, and help build the Kingdom right here in the West Branch area! We can’t wait to see you all together again soon!

God bless!

United Methodist Men - ELKHORN FIRST UNITED METHODIST CHURCH

 

 

 

Monthly Breakfast Meeting on the third Sunday of every month at 8 am at the church.

Overview

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. Everyone has different gifts, graces and areas of interest. Therefore, opportunities for participation would include diverse ministries of the church, such as prayer groups, missions, Bible studies, retreats, workshops/seminars, small groups in the Wesleyan tradition, leading and participating on committees, teaching Sunday school classes, youth ministries, scouting, mentoring and assisting in leading worship service. The focus is not inward, concentrating only on those who attend a set meeting, but outward to all men, assisting them to engage the process of spiritual growth.

Mission

Our mission is to support spiritual growth among men, helping men to mature as disciples as they encourage spiritual formation in others.

Goal

Our goal is to empower the ministry of Jesus Christ through men within the congregations of the UMC.

Pathway

Our pathway is a lifelong commitment to spiritual growth to maturity as Christ followers. Our spiritual formation is marked by spiritual reproduction, as our faith passes on in others.
