Men's Ministry

The Cherokee County United Methodist Men is a Fellowship and is open to all the men of all the churches...and any other men with the common desire to become disciples of Jesus Christ.  We are comprised of six (6) UM churches in Cherokee County; First United Methodist in Murphy, Ranger, Peachtree, Tomotla, Reid's Chapel and Martin's Creek.  Andrews UMC has their own Men's Fellowship.
We are an annually charted unit of the General Commission of United Methodist Men, Nashville, Tennessee.
Our primary PURPOSE is to declare the centrality of Christ in the lives of men in all their relationships.
Another way to say our GOAL is to be a creative, supportive fellowhship of men who seek to know Jesus Christ, to grow spiritually and to seek daily His will.
We meet monthly on the second Tuesday at 6:00 pm for dinner except for our June meeting which is in a shelter at Koneheta Park, Murphy, at 8:00 am.
Tuesday evenings are easier for working men to attend.
Our annual income from periodic fund raisers is approximately $8,000 of which we give away most of to good causes.  Only food cost and a necessary small carryover is kept.
Currently our budgeted commitments are:
     Truett Baptist Summer Camp (underprivileged kids)
