The 1st Thursday at 9:00 a.m. every month, men join together to get fed, literally and spiritually, for a Men’s Prayer Breakfast at Gulfview UMC’s Fellowship Hall.

The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Thursdays at 9:30 a.m. every month, men come together for the Men’s Prayer Group in Room 105 at Gulfview UMC.

If there is a 5th Thursday in a month, the men go to Food4Kidz at 8:30 a.m. to help out with organizing and bagging up food distributed to hungry children in our community.  For more information on Food4Kidz visit http://www.food4kidz.org/ .

What is UMM (United Methodist Men)?
   Gulfview United Methodist Men (GUMM) was born out of a group of men who meet every Thursday to pray for our church members and loved ones with needs or concerns. Even though it is a relatively young group, the GUMM have several services and projects:

Upper Room Prayer Line

Emmaus Walk – We coordinate and help sponsor our members who wish to participate in this life changing spiritual growth event.

The Good Samaritan Project – This project has provided services such as helping with small maintenance items that someone may not be able to perform, lawn mowing, and porch/ramp building where needed. If you have a gift or skill for these types of projects let Don Hardy or Bill Weber know. If you want to donate toward acquiring materials, make check out to GUMC and write on memo line: “Samaritan”.

From Old Testament Times to today, men have gathered to discuss their faith journeys and find meaning, hope, helping, and healing.

 Our purpose is to declare the centrality of Christ in every man’s life.  This is expressed as men engaging in daily Bible Study, witness to Christ in daily work and relationships, and intentional Christian service to others.

 We want men to know Christ so others may know Christ.  These opportunities include diverse ministries of the church, such as prayer groups, missions, Bible studies, retreats, community outreach projects, small groups in the Wesleyan tradition, leading and participating on church committees, teaching Sunday school classes, mentoring, and assisting in leading worship services. 

The focus is not inward, concentrating only on those who attend a meeting, but outward to all men, assisting them to engage the process of spiritual growth. United Methodist Men are committed to the spiritual growth of men, who experience God’s transforming power in their lives, and pass on their faith to live and grow in others.
