United Methodist Men

United Methodist Men (UMM) is the official organization for men in The United Methodist Church at the local church, Annual Conference, and denominational levels.

The mission of UMM, is to support spiritual growth among men, helping men to mature as disciples as they encourage spiritual formation in others, all the while “helping men grow in Christ, so others can know Christ.”

Aldersgate’s UMM gathers monthly for fellowship and learning. Every other month there is an Executive Committee meeting (all are welcome to attend) where current and upcoming activities are discussed and voted upon. During the other months (except July) there is a dinner with a guest speaker. Although it is sponsored by UMM, it is open to everyone. Previous speakers have been from The Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, George Washington’s Mount Vernon, Fairfax County Police Department Human Trafficking Office, and a former Medical Missionary. Meetings and dinners are held in the evening on the second Tuesday of the month (except January when it is on the fourth Tuesday).

UMM’s major fundraiser is an annual family golf outing, usually held in August. This event raises funds to support UMM’s mission outreach–UMM has given approximately $75,000 to local, regional, and international mission projects because of the golf outings over the past eleven years. No money goes to prizes-it all goes to mission outreach!
