“Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong, let all that you do be done in love.” 1 Corinthians 16:13-14
Everybody has a calling to do God’s work. For the Mountain View UMC Men, callings for service to the church can be as varied as erecting a structure for the playground to scooping up ice cream for a long line of family, friends and those in the “neighborhood” of Jesus.
The Mountain View UMC Men meet regularly as friends…to just “talk things over” that are affecting their personal lives and the life of the church. They engage in activities they enjoy and work hard on projects that benefit Mountain View UMC. The men meet every Tuesday morning for coffee with a monthly breakfast on the first Saturday of every month (except July and August). All meetings are open to men desiring the fellowship of time spent with other Christian men.
Typical activities for men:
Ministry to a church in Sonoyta, Mexico
Providing the Upper Room devotional
Supporting fair trade coffee sales to support a family business in Mexico
Ice Cream socials
Honor “Angel” workers
Pumpkin patch (fund raiser)
MUHS (Mingus Union High School) FFA Scholarship
Mountain View UMC Student Scholarships
Recycling aluminum cans to help fund projects
