The United Methodist Men (UMM) is a group which meets every Sunday morning at 8:00am in Good   Shepherd Hall for a Men's Prayer Breakfast. This group is open to all men seeking a better relationship with God. Our mission is to glorify God and to create disciples among men in the church and in the local community.

On Sunday mornings following the 9:20 and 11:00 a.m. services, please look for a member of Calvary's United Methodist Men in the Narthex who will be accepting donations for the Methodist Cross & Flame made by Oscar Streaker III. All contributions will benefit The Society of St. Andrews' Potato & Produce Project. This ongoing project salvages truck-loads of perfectly edible, but unmarketable potatoes and other produce donated by members of the agricultural community and is then delivered to agencies that serve the poor and help feed those who would otherwise go hungry. Thank you for supporting this effort.
