“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” ~Matthew 28:19-20 (NRSV)
Centreville United Methodist Men (UMM) provides opportunities to connect through many men's groups, activities, and ministries throughout the church. UMM strives to encourage their members to worship God, grow in faith together, and serve others.
United Methodist Men in Worship
The United Methodist Men (UMM) support worship at CUMC individually and collectively as Sunday morning greeters, lay readers, communion stewards and servers, and ushers. Many members of UMM also enjoy sharing their love of music during worship, in particular as members of the Chancel Choir.
United Methodist Men Fellowship & Growth
United Methodist Men (UMM) encourages their members to pursue "growth" through various fellowship opportunities.
