UNITED METHODIST MEN

The purpose of the St. Marks’ United Methodist Men (UMM) is to help men know Jesus Christ, to serve Him, to grow spiritually and seek daily to do His will. The UMM seek to help men grow in learning of the bible and how to deal with everyday challenges. We hold fundraisers throughout the year to support Boy Scouts, Youth, Good Samaritan Fund, Families of the Wounded, and others.

WTE_logo_finalEMMAUS

The Walk to Emmaus focuses on God as known through Jesus Christ and on the expression of that awareness in the local church. The Emmaus experience is intended to inspire, challenge, and equip local church members for Christian action in their homes, churches, and places of work. Emmaus lifts up a way for our grace-filled life to be lived and shared with others. See the FLYER for more details and contact information!

Dates for upcoming Emmaus and Chrysalis (the high school age youth version of Emmaus) are scheduled as follows:

Men’s & Women’s Emmaus:  September 14-17

SILVER STREAKS

This group of seniors is an active and vibrant group centered on service, fellowship and fun! We assist with many mission projects at St. Mark’s including CARITAS, STOP Hunger Now, the Evergreen Elementary Mentoring program and many others. The Silver Streaks are often “on the go”—traveling to local sites of interest and overnight trips to plays and dinner theaters. You don’t have to have silver hair to join us!
