Groups At ARUMC
United Methodist Men
The mission of the United Methodist Men (UMM) is to support spiritual growth among men, helping men to mature as disciples as they encourage spiritual formation in others. The men’s group gathers to serve many ministries within the community and the church. Various fundraisers support Christmas missions projects, Salkehatchie summer missions, as well as other ministry needs. The UMM have outings throughout the year and monthly Sunday breakfasts and devotionals. Outings have included a paintball excursion and attending Greenville Drive games.
United Methodist Women
The United Methodist Women (UMW) meet the third Sunday each month at 8:15 a.m. Their purpose is to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative, supportive fellowship; and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of ARUMC. They fund such missions as The Backpack Ministry, Clothing Drives, and other ministries within the church. The UMW group has taken several outings to Hendersonville (A day in the Country), the Cafe in the Corner, and sponsored a “Holiday for Her”.
Forever Young meets the third Wednesday of each month. Lunch, travel, games, nature walks, picnics and fellowship are enjoyed by all. Forever Young invites all to participate! Sign ups are located in the Narthex. Questions and/or suggestions for this group may be directed to Pastor David Smith or Debbie Welborn.
This group of quilters meets monthly on the second Saturday morning to craft prayer blankets that go to church members who are hospitalized or suffering from serious illnesses.
