“No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.” 1 Corinthians 10:13
Today’s man has the pressure of society telling him how to act and what is important. It is an honor to provide men with opportunities where they can be themselves. Our goal goal is to empower men toward leadership and act accordingly with the Will of Christ.
United Methodist Men
GOLF SCRAMBLE: Copper Mill on 10/21/12. Call the office to register.
Jefferson has a strong community of men who come together for events, service and spiritual growth. Yet, our UMM knows how to have fun too! We enjoy a congregational golf scramble, have a football themed kickoff dinner and celebrate Valentine’s Day with a multi-course dinner and entertainment to honor the ladies in our lives.
Opportunities for Men
We offer a Men’s morning Bible study (Wednesdays at 6:30am), a Tuesday night Men’s group (at 6:30pm), and a Friday Men’s Covenant group (noon). In different ways, these groups each provide guidance for a man’s journey as he walks with Christ.
You are welcome to join a group at any time.
“Your godly lives will speak to them better than words…it (your beauty) should be that of your inner self, the unfaded beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.” - 1 Peter 3
Our women’s program has recently seen REVIVED! We are glad to offer events, classes, groups, and retreats just for the woman. See our newsletter for upcoming events.
United Methodist Women
Through the national organization of the United Methodist Women, we find opportunities to serve those in need. We use our gifts in any way we are called. We also provide support to the men’s group as they need us. The UMW meet monthly for planning and a Bible study.
The women of the church look forward to our annual three-day retreat at the beach. It is a time to reflect on our past year and recharge for the current one. We create new friendships and come closer to Christ. There is time for relaxation and quiet moments with God surrounded by the beauty that is the beach. The Fall 2012 retreat had over 50 women…maybe a retreat in the spring!
This fall we will offer a Mom’s study on Thursdays from 9:30-11am. We will read and discuss the book 52 Things Kids Need from a Mom by Angela Thomas. Class starts 9/13 and you are welcome to attend any week.
