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.

For more information, email

The meetings for Riverside Methodist Men are scheduled for the fourth Tuesday of most months in Peterson Hall, starting with social time from 5:30 to 6:00 p.m.

We also sponsor three special events annually: 


  • Pancake Day (February)

  • All Church Cook-out (September)

  • Christmas Holiday Dinner (December)

May 24, 2022 - United Methodist Men


Rock Island Arsenal Museum. Director Stephen P. Allie. Rock Island Arsenal is the Army’s 2nd oldest museum.  It opened in 1905.  Currently  the museum is closed for renovations.  It will reopen this summer. New  engaging  interactive exhibits will be installed for children and adults as well as STEM (science, technology, engineering and  mathematics) activities tied to the history of the arsenal. The museum also just recently acquired a WWI tank that was built at the arsenal.  The tank will be displayed after being restored.

September 27, 2022 - Cookout at the Life Center


Here's a "heads-up" about a change to the cookout.  In years past, we have held this during June, but we have decided to shift the All Church Cookout to September after a good turnout in 2021.  The weather should be a little cooler in the fall and it will be a good opportunity to kick-off our year of events.  Mark the date on your calendars.
