Fellowship, Inspiration and Service
About Our Group
The SMUMC Men's Group meets on alternating Saturdays for fellowship, inspiration, and planning of service projects. Our primary purpose is to acknowledge the centrality of Christ in the lives of men and in all our relationships.
Our bi-weekly meetings allow us the opportunity to share a meal while being blessed with programs that inspire, move, and enlighten us.
Our major goals are:
- to encourage knowledge of and support for the total mission of the United Methodist Church.
- to engage in evangelism by sharing the fullness of the gospel.
- to clarify and speak to the identity and role of the man in contemporary society.
- to seek commitment to discipleship.
- to study and become familiar with the United Methodist Church, its organization, doctrines, and beliefs.
- to cooperate with all units of United Methodist men in obtaining these objectives through district, conference and church wide goals.
We usually watch a video and a member will lead the post-video discussion. We rotate this responsibility from meeting to meeting. Another member will provide breakfast and we also rotate that from meeting to meeting.
When: Alternate Saturday's from 7:30 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.
Where: At the Church

This Week at RSM Campus
On Sunday we continue our series on "Making All Things New." Last week we talked about the "What" of the Gospel - the very nature of the Gospel and how God wants to transform the world through it. This week we are going to talk about the "Who" of the Gospel. We are continuing to move through Colossians and as it progresses Paul begins to pray for the people of Colasse and does so because he knows that they will need great trust and knowledge of Who the gospel is about, and Who will cause life transformation. So this week we will gather together to talk about Who Jesus is when it comes to transformation newness. What we discover is that Jesus makes things new everyday if we simply allow those tiny transformations to lead to big ones..... See you Sunday as we talk about the image of the invisible!
