Sharing God's Abundant Grace

Monthly Events


     The mission of United Methodist Men is to assist men to know Jesus Christ, to serve Him, to grow spiritually and seek daily to do his will. The men sponsor a Men's Breakfast the second Saturday of each month at 8:00 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall. Check the Events Calendar for other activities.


United Methodist Women

     United Methodist Women is a national membership organization with nearly one-million members whose purpose is to foster spiritual growth, develop leaders and advocate for justice. Members raise approximately $20 million a year for programs and projects related to women, children and youth in the United States and in more than 100 countries around the world.

     UMW is a community of women who nurture and encourage one another in their spiritual growth, personal leadership and transformation. Being a member of The United Methodist Church is not required nor is there any minimum age requirement. A member of United Methodist Women is anyone who commits herself to the purpose and chooses to belong. United Methodist Women celebrates an inclusive membership and welcomes all women who want to become members. Out of a commitment for mission locally and globally with women, children and youth, United Methodist Women choose to participate in meetings, prayer, financial giving, study, action and service.

     United Methodist Women meets on the second Thursday of each month, sometimes day meetings and sometimes evening. Summer months they enjoy a "Ladies' Lunch Out" at various local restaurants. Check the calendar for the schedule.



  Women of Manatee Breakfast

     The first Saturday of every month the Women of Manatee join together for a great time of good food with good friends and a time of sharing how God is working in their lives. Breakfast is at 8:00 a.m. and the cost is $5.


Caregivers Support Group 


  The third Thursday of each month we offer a Caregivers Support Group. Come share your frustrations and successes, and learn about resources that are available. All are welcome.



   The Scrapbookers meet twice a month in the Fellowship Hall, on the second and fourth Saturday of the month. Anyone is welcome. There is no charge for these sessions.

 The Sharing Group

"Only by letting ourselves be known to each other and to our deepest selves can we have the assurance that we are known by God."   

Margaret Guenther, 
Holy Listening 

We are a women's Christian spirituality circle who come together monthly in a relaxed time to share our stories and reassess God's will for our lives. We use Sacred Scriptures to move our hearts, conversations to identify our concerns and cares and prayers to touch our souls and lift one another up to God.
