UNITED METHODIST MEN:  HELPING MEN GROW IN CHRIST SO OTHERS MAY KNOW CHRIST 

We consider all men of St. Mark’s to be part of the fellowship of United Methodist Men.  Our group is connected with other UMMen throughout the Easton District and the Peninsula Delaware Conference and even at the national level through the General Commission of United Methodist Men (GCUMM) in Nashville. 

While we do hold monthly meetings on the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30 PM in room 155, at the church, we recognize that most men are more interested in action than meetings.  To that end, our group has been very involved in the life of St. Mark’s and beyond.  Following are just a few examples:  

  • Provide Shrove Tuesday Dinner, Easter Breakfast, set up and grilling for church picnics  

  • Invite Waterfowl Festival visitors to St. Mark’s Church by cooperating with  Troop 190 to serve Rockfish Corn Chowder, oyster fritters, etc. 

  • Projects at Camp Pecometh and the Retreat Center, e.g., Soul Searching Swing, maintenance of the St. Mark’s Cabin, construction of gas fire ring, and more ... 

  • Maintenance projects at the church such as painting the outdoor fixtures and the playground equipment.

  • Community ministries including assistance to families in need, guidance and financial assistance for youth mission trips.
 
  • Host the Pen-Del Conference annual UMMen Spring Gathering.
 
  • Honor women of St. Mark’s via a river boat cruise and/or special Valentine Day luncheons. 

  • Bible studies for men 

  • Design and construct backdrops and exhibits for Bible School and other church events. 

  • Video recording of weekly sermons and making them available via this website

St. Mark's sponsors Boy Scout Troop 190 and they collaborate with the Methodist Men each fall
at the annual Waterfowl Festival to operate  the Church's food consession for 3 days. 

The UMMen are most appreciative of their assistance and they share the profits of the endeavor with the scouts.
