United Methodist Men
The ministry of men in the local church is defined as a core group of men, partnering with their pastor, to invite and initiate spiritual growth opportunities for all men of the church. The UMM of Harmony Grove UMC supports Family Promise, Breakfast with Santa, our Community Easter Egg Hunt and where ever their skills are needed.
