United Methodist Men
The United Methodist Men of Bethia is a group of men dedicated to the spiritual growth and health of all men of the Bethia Church family. The group meets on the third Wednesday night of each month at 6:30pm for dinner, fellowship and a brief program. Each meeting features a devotional time and a short business and planning meeting.
Every male in the church family is a “member” of the UMM and encouraged to attend any and all UMM functions. Proceeds from fundraisers are used to fund ministry opportunities at Bethia, the community, and the world.
Annual activities include: Brunswick stew sales, Christmas tree sale, Living Nativity, work projects and clean-up days.
