COOPERATIVE WIDE UM MEN'S MINISTRY: ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
The Bible instructs us to meet together (Hebrews 10:25), encourage one another (Proverbs 27:17), and
worship God (Psalm 100:2). However, it can be challenging for men to find common ground and connect
spiritually. This is where a Cooperative-wide United Methodist Men's Ministry comes in. Many churches
already have men's ministries or small groups, but creation of a Cooperative-wide Men's Ministry would
bring together men from different churches in the same geographical area. A Cooperative-wide Men's
Ministry provides an opportunity for men to not only grow in faith but also form friendships, mentor
each other and participate in Christ-centered service opportunities.
Meetings are at 7pm every Monday night
