United Methodist Men | Second Saturdays | 8:30 am Panera Bread, Evans
The heritage of United Methodist Men is a most glorious one. The roots of Methodist Men are buried deep down in the heart of Methodism and find their source in the life and work of the founder of Methodism, John Wesley. From the Holy Club at Oxford University to the societies and classes formed among Methodist Men in the ranks of the British army and navy to the Naval and Military Bible Society organized in 1779 by two men in Wesley’s West Street Chapel to the impact of John Wesley’s work among men and, especially the men of the British army was profound. Organized brotherhood groups began to spring up among the men of the army. Many of these men later chose ordained ministry as their vocation. Some of Wesley’s earliest preachers were former soldiers. UMM Purpose: Helping men to grow in Christ, so others can know Christ. Lewis Memorial’s UMM meets on the second Saturday of each month at the Evans Panera Bread for a bible study and breakfast. Fourth Saturdays focus on ministry projects in our community.
Band of Brothers
A group of men went to Promise Keepers. They came back a Band of Brothers and the ministry to others began. The Band of Brothers Ministry seeks to provide an awakening for men of all ages to meet together in small groups for bible study and Accountability. Our main purpose is to draw men closer to the Lord while establishing a strong connection with other men. Accountability groups are kept to a minimum size to encourage deeper relationships while maintaining confidentiality. Most groups meet weekly on various days and times for an intense time of prayer and devotion. Contact the church office for a list of established groups or information about how to begin a new circle.
