Vision

The ministry of our United Methodist Men 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 United Methodist Church.

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.

Why is men’s ministry important?

Men lead others best by modeling Jesus Christ in thoughts, words and deeds.

Spiritual maturity is signified in spiritual reproduction, as the faith of mature disciples passes on in others.

Men growing in Christ become effective spiritual leader in their homes and congregations, working as partners with their spouses and congregational leaders-both lay and clergy.

Spiritually growing men help congregations to become vital and alive.

Everything desired from and through men comes as a result of men growing spiritually and maturing as disciples: family blessings, stewardship, service, outreach, prayer, spiritual leadership, lifestyle evangelism, and faithful obedience. Men are foundational to the life and health of the church.

When a man lives daily in surrendered faith, God is honored and many lives are blessed. Transformed hearts are forged only within Christ-centered lives-nothing less is our acceptable offering; nothing less truly reveals Christ.

Activities in our Church

The United Methodist Men of the First United Methodist Church are active in our local church.  We support the church scouting program.  We support the youth with a scholarship to a graduating High School senior each May.

Events:

2017 Annual Spaghetti Supper to Benefit the Boys Scholarship Program - FUMC Lockhart (313 W. San Antonio Street, Lockhart, Texas) - Fellowship Hall - Thursday, November2, 2017 from 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
 

To all -

A brief reminder that the United Methodist Men (UMM) of First United Methodist Church of Lockhart (FUMC Lockhart) will be hosting the 2017 Annual Spaghetti Supper to Benefit the Boys College Scholarship Program on Thursday, November 2, 2017 (5:30 – 7:30 PM) in Fellowship Hall at FUMC Lockhart (313 W. San Antonio Street, Lockhart, Texas 78664).  Come hungry and know that your generous donations will be supporting a college scholarship for at least one boy as he begins his college work for Christ.  Our awards of $500 have been given to Ray Sedwick (2013), Paul Hodge, Tyler Prestage, Grant Schlaht (2015), Logan Clinger (2016) and Mikey Juarez (2017).

To help as many boys as possible, we need your support.  To provide a $500 scholarship for 3 boys means that we will need $1500 by May of 2017.  Please pray about this scholarship program, and if you wish to donate to this effort after the Spaghetti Supper, please leave donations at the church office (marked “Attention – UMM – Boys Scholarship”).

Serving will begin at 5:30 PM on Thursday, November 2, 2017 in Fellowship Hall at FUMC Lockhart.

The men are requested to gather at 4:00 PM to begin preparations for the meal.  It would be useful if someone could bring at least one large cooking pot to help cook the spaghetti.  We were concerned last year about having enough pots to do the cooking, so I wanted to be sure to address this concern.  Collanders and strainers are also useful.

Thanks, and we hope to see you there!

Sincerely,

Ron Schneider
President, United Methodist Men
FUMC Lockhart
