Men’s Fellowship Refocuses during 2018 Retreat! (3/16/18)

The 2018 Men’s Fellowship retreat was our 17th annual retreat at Black Rock! Regardless of our situation or how many times we’ve done something, we need to be aware of the purpose of our life.
Pastor George DeVol led us on a weekend study of Paul’s letter to the Philippians, and to some serious reflection…

Men Retreat to Strengthen their Mission (3/17/17)

The Mens Fellowship group followed a tradition this year; we went on a retreat to Black Rock. This was our 16th annual retreat. Routine? Not really! Every time you open yourself up for an encounter with God, something different is likely to happen. The topic of this year’s retreat was “Being a Man with a Mission”, and we explored how our “mission” plays out in our personal, family and church lives. Retreats aren’t just “book learning” or...

Men’s Fellowship Retreats and Grows into Leadership (3/11/16)

Sometimes it’s really helpful to shift your focus from the daily routine, and get away to spend some time with friends around a time of learning, worship, and fellowship.  And that’s exactly what a retreat is!  For the 15th year in a row, our Men’s Fellowship group took a weekend apart and traveled to the Black Rock Retreat Center in Quaryville, PA.  It’s a familiar place for us, but each weekend has its own character and its own take-aways of growth and learning. This...

During his time here he blessed us with...

Men’s Group Enters the Gates with Thanksgiving (12/12/15)

Our United Methodist Men’s Fellowship held our monthly gathering on the morning of December 12, and we considered Psalm 100.  This familiar Psalm teaches us that “Theology (knowledge) leads to Doxology (worship).” Our guest speaker was Gino Curcuruto,  a chiropractor/pastor/father and devoted Christian.  Gino and his family recently moved from Pitman to Philadelphia, with the intent of planting churches in his South Philly neighborhood (or wherever God is leading them).  The...

Men Rake Up! (11/14/15)

The Men of our church got the chance to get together on Saturday for two seemingly different activities.   First we gathered at the church for a Bible study on Romans chapter 1.  After that, we “gathered” at a local park to rake leaves. The leaf raking was our participation in Pitman’s “Clean Communities” project in which civic and church groups work to clean up an assigned roadway or piece of land.  For us, money earned from this morning of work helps pay for our...

The morning of Saturday September 26 will be a busy time at PUMC!  We’re getting together so we can help families afford to send their children to our preschool, Our Fathers House.

Men are Set to Kick Off a New Season! (9/12/15)

Pizza!!!! On the second Saturday of every month in the year (except in the months named July and August), a group of men get together to laugh, drink coffee, eat donuts… and share in some informal Bible study.  The “informal Bible study” is usually lead by an outside speaker who gives us a fresh perspective on how we can live and grow in our Christian walk as men.

Mexico Mission Benefits from Men’s Cooking and Yard Sale (4/26/15)

On Saturday April 25, 2015, the United Methodist Men’s Fellowship served up one of our “famous” breakfast buffets.  The buffet was open not only to serve up a great Saturday morning eating experience, but also to help us serve a church in La Palmilla Mexico which needs help to finish the construction of their new sanctuary.  The buffet was held in conjunction with a yard sale.  Vendors paid for table space, and those proceeds went to the mission.

Men Stick it to the Leaves (4/18/15)

On Saturday April 18 our men’s fellowship group descended upon a patch of borough property on the corner of Cedar Ave. & Alcyon Blvd. to clean up. As part of the town’s clean communities program, we raked leaves, picked up trash, and collected sticks to tidy up this unkempt area. We were given rakes, convict-looking orange vests, and trash grabbers, and amidst the summer like weather and even a bit of “trash talk,” we spent the morning doing a much needed job.  And-...

Saturday (2/14/15) is Valentines Day.  And, it’s also the 2nd Saturday of the month.  Put the two together, and it’s time for the United Methodist Men to gather in fellowship AND to discuss our love lives… or more accurately, our Heart Condition with God. And to make that easier, our guest speaker is a doctor!  The Rev. Dr. Nicholas DeMaria, MD. will lead us in a study of “The Spiritual Autopsy of the Heart.”  We’ll look at the book of 1 Samuel.  ...
