Hurricane Matthew Relief Trip – March 2
The United Methodist Men are continuing to lead work teams to areas damaged by Hurricane Matthew on a Saturday during most months. There is a tremendous amount of work still to be done as many families are still living in motels or with friends until their homes can be repaired.
The single day trips are a lot of fun and you really will accomplish a great deal toward helping our neighbors in eastern North Carolina to get back in their homes. The team is open to men, women and older youth. Please contact Rick Kibler for more details and to sign up. He can be reached at 919-467-0046 or email@example.com.
Do you want to get more out of your church? The Methodist Men can help you. As different men have different needs, interests, schedules and talents, we want to be able to help the individual men of the church be involved and connected with activities and opportunities and groups that fit them.
So we’ve developed a short, online survey soon that will help us communicate with you about activities, service opportunities and groups at the church that may be of specific interest to you. We will also use this information to plan activities and different functions that will be of interest to the men of the church.
How can you help us? Take the survey, here are 3 easy ways to take it.
1) Click here and you can take it right now.
2) If you would prefer a paper survey, contact David Crittenden at firstname.lastname@example.org or 919.880.5902
On September 9, 2019, over 100 golfers will enjoy a great day of golf, fellowship and fun while supporting a variety of worthwhile programs and services of the United Methodist Men of First United Methodist Church Cary and the USO of North Carolina.
