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.

Christian Care, Rock Island - Sept 2, 2023


The Methodist Men will be serving an evening meal at the Christian Care Center in Rock Island on the first Saturday in September.  We will need about 6 guys to help with the food preparation.  We will probably have burgers and hot dogs on the grill, a corn boil, salad and dessert.  Additionally, a speaker is needed to provide a devotional to the guests at Christian Care.  If you would like to participate in this event,  please contact Gene Oppenheimer, Mark Slater or Dave Rogers, or volunteer via email : 

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

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.
