Chartered in 1954, the East Marion United Methodist Men’s Club is open to all people of the Church, members and visitors alike. UMM meet on the third Sunday of the month in the Fellowship Hall at 7:15am. This is a time of informal fellowship, project planning and a hearty breakfast. Some of the UMM projects include: church and parsonage maintenance and renovations, Community Heating Assistance, and the Annual Yard Sale. If there is a need in the community the UMM will strive to render assistance, from helping with utility bills to building ramps for the disabled.

“For me, Men’s Breakfast has become less of a meeting and more of a family gathering around the table. Sure we discuss “business” but mostly we just share our lives and interests with each other. Discussions in the kitchen are on a wide range of subjects including Ham Radio, Little League, computers, fishing, running moonshine, The Andy Griffith Show, Corvettes and personal faith. You know, guy stuff. Please consider joining us at the table.”

John W., Church Member

"The Men’s Club is an informal gathering. The men of the church offer themselves and their gifts to the glory of Christ’s love, through charitable projects in the church and community. P.S. The breakfasts are wonderful!!!"

"We’ve found that if you eat it in the church, it can’t hurt you. Bring on the pork!"

East Marion United Methodist Women (UMW), meet on the second Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. for an informal but structured meeting and time of fellowship. We adhere to the guidelines set forth by United Methodist Women, but we each bring our individual God-given gifts to create a small-member unit that tackles a variety of church wide, community wide and worldwide mission projects.

“I look forward to our meetings every month. We have some very interesting programs and we catch up on what's going on in each other’s lives with refreshments after our business session. The UMW is all about missions, that's what our focus is, and we are always planning projects that will help others, locally as well as state and nation-wide. I wish every woman in the church would participate in UMW. I can tell you this, once you start coming, you will regret every meeting you have ever missed! Come join us!”

Judy F., Member East Marion

"Our UMW is open to all ladies of the church. We gather to share our love of Christ and each other in order to be a light in the community. Our projects include aid to women and children as well as world missions, such as disaster relief and world hunger. After a program and business session, we enjoy refreshments and ‘gab’ time. I always look forward to our time together."

Marie S., Church Member

"During my life-long membership I have witnessed the members of East Marion United Methodist Church always demonstrating the love of Christ not only toward other members but in its mission outreach."

Jo P., Member East Marion

The First Monday Fellowship Luncheon is more than bring a covered dish to share and enjoying fellowship through bingo and conversation. First Monday is the day the food collected for the Pleasant Hill Food Pantry is packed up and delivered. Everyone in the community is encouraged and welcomed to attend! It’s a great way to meet the neighbours.

“Want to Worship our Lord; have great fellowship; and hear some good words? Come out to EMUMC the first Monday of each month, at noon. Bring a covered dish and go off your diet for a day. You can't beat the food. Rev. Phil and Jim always have some good advice with some humor added. Ruth Ann keeps us going. We have people from other Churches that come; you come too. If you don't know anyone when you get here, you will be well acquainted before you leave. So, come on; its habit forming!”

Norm C., Church Member

“Getting together the first Monday of each month for a meal at Church is one of my favorite things to do.  I always look forward to seeing everyone, talking, playing Bingo and having a good meal.  It is a good way to socialize and just have fun.”

Mereda M., Church Member
