United Methodist Men(UMM)
We are the men of St. John’s United Methodist Church, Rock Hill, SC; known as the United Methodist Men. We gather weekly for a relaxed lesson on spiritual and ethical matters in our lives.
Our Mission Statement:
"To become men of Christ: united in Spirit, renewed in passions, and developed into servant leaders for our church, our families, and our community."
Our Inspiration comes from Scripture:
As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another (Proverbs 27:17)
Go therefore and make disciples of all men, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit; teaching them to observe all that I commanded you. (Matthew 28: 19)
What We Do:
We congregate every Wednesday Morning from 6 – 7:00 am for a "Power Breakfast" at Ebenezer Grill (1525 Ebenezer Rd Rock Hill, SC). We read and discuss scripture, eat a delicious breakfast and commune with one another as Christian men should do.
Sunday Morning Prayer Time:
The UMM invites the men of the church to participate in our “Sunday Morning Prayer Time”. Every Sunday morning approximately 30 minutes before each service, we meet in Room 138 “The Stronghold” and we pray. Each person prays in his own method and comes and goes in quiet reverence as he sees fit. Please join us this Sunday. We pray for:
Everyone listed on the Church Prayer List
Everyone listed on the UMM Prayer Request Notebook (on the table)
Any person and/or item on someone’s heart or mind that they want to bring to us
Masculine christian literature provided for the men of the church, by the men of the church. Free to use with the stipulation that you add one book to the collection.
"The Last Supper" drama
Each year, on Maundy Thursday, the men of St. John's take you back to new testiment bibilical times and tell the story of the last supper as each disciple looks upon themselves and each ask the question "Is it I, Lord?"
Veterans Day Recognition
Every Veteran's Day, we celebrate, honor and remember those that have served our country so selflessly. It is their sacrifices that provide us our freedoms. Carnations are sold in honor or memory of our heroes along with those names being placed in our bulletin for acknowledgement.
We support the church, its members and the surrounding community in any way possible; including the installation of windows, raking leaves for an elderly patron and handing out veggies to the surrounding community to name a few.
The Band of Brothers are always open to any challenge and no task has yet to be deemed to large or to small.
