Men's Ministry


The Riverside Park United Methodist Men (UMM) is a group of men whose mission is to support the spiritual growth opportunities for all men of the church and to help them to mature as disciples as they encourage spiritual formation in others.  


When We Meet:    10am on the 4th Sunday of the month in Room 313


The UMM has several annual events that support the ministries and people of Riverside Park UMC and its community:

  • In February, the UMM help the youth group with their Valentine’s Dinner Fundraiser. 
  • On Palm Sunday, the UMM host the Lay Appreciation Dinner.  This event is held after the Palm Sunday Unity Service in the Fellowship Hall.
  • The UMM on behalf of the congregation express appreciation and gratitude to the laity (or volunteers) of the church.  One person who has shown outstanding Christian leadership and discipleship with their time and talent is recognized with an award.  
  • In October, the UMM will host an annual Golf Tournament which raises money for local missions. 
  • In the fall, the UMM sponsor a church-wide event to clean up neighboring Five Points. 

In 2015, 26 church members showed up early on a Saturday morning and collected many bags of trash around the shops and businesses in the Five Points district.
