Riverside Methodist Men
Methodist Men is an organization of men committed to God and dedicated to the work and teaching of Jesus Christ, joined in fellowship as we serve others within and around our church family and throughout the community. Riverside Methodist Men is open to all men in our church. Consider attending one of our events this year. We welcome any man who would like to be included in this fellowship. We meet throughout the year for fellowship, dinner and programs. We sponsor special events for the church family and provide outreach to the community.
Pancake Day - Feb 25, 2023
Pancake Day was a big success this year, after a 2 year hiatus. The weather cooperated and we served at least 270 people, No one walked away hungry. We appreciated the support and look forward to doing it again in 2024. If you have any suggestions about the Pancake Day, please email them to email@example.com
UMM Update - Mar 15, 2023
The Methodist Men have decided to focus on activities that combine service and fellowship. These will occur approximately every three months. The Pancake Day was our first event. We are looking into serving an evening meal at Christian Care in Rock Island sometime in early summer. We are also looking into a joint activity with the Women's misistry. If you have questions or suggestions about how we can serve, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Aluminum Can Recycling
Did you know that the UMM collects and recycles aluminum cans? Some come from the church pop machine, but most are dropped off by church members. Since 2021, we raised over $100 from redemptions in both Iowa and Illinois. Since we must sort the cans, we ask that they be rinsed and free of debris. Bugs, flies and dirt are attracted to the sweet residue in cans if they are not rinsed. We ask that you assist us to improve the sorting process. There are containers in Peterson Hall for dropping off the cans. Thank you for your support.
