Washington Street is home to a very active group of United Methodist Men.
Founded by the United Methodist Church,
The ministry of men in the local church is defined as a core group of men, partnering with their pastor, to invite and initiate spiritual growth opportunities for all men of the church. Everyone has different gifts, graces and areas of interest. Therefore, opportunities for participation would include diverse ministries of the church, such as prayer groups, missions, Bible studies, retreats, workshops/seminars, small groups in the Wesleyan tradition, leading and participating on committees, teaching Sunday school classes, youth ministries, scouting, mentoring and assisting in leading worship service. The focus is not inward, concentrating only on those who attend a set meeting, but outward to all men, assisting them to engage the process of spiritual growth.
Our group of UMM is service oriented with a foundation in Christian Fellowship and Discipleship. Our group meets on the fourth Thursday of each month, and alternates between service opportunities and fellowship with one another. The UMM of Washington Street are dedicated to the spiritual formation and growth of men in ministry, which in return, grows the church.
