Methodist Men

United Methodist Men (UMM) is a creative, supportive fellowship of men who seek to know Jesus Christ, to grow spiritually, and to seek God’s will daily. They seek to be involved in various areas of church membership and service and encourage all men to study and become familiar with the United Methodist church.

UMM meets the first Saturday morning of each month at 7:30 a.m. in the dining room. We share breakfast and fellowship as we gather to grow in our faith. Trinity United Methodist Men have had many opportunities to serve our church, community and others. UMM is not just a group of men who meet for breakfast once a month. UMM is a ministry of Trinity, having been called upon to paint in Bristol House, sort tools for youth mission trips, build sound panels for the sanctuary, build cubby holes for Trinity Early Learning Center, and trim and clean the parking lots.

United Methodist Men sponsor an annual Easter Pancake Breakfast
Funds from Breakfast support Trinity Youth, Boy Scout Troop 560, The Wesley Foundation at UTA,
and Aldersgate Enrichment Center in Brownwood, Texas.

The Marble

The Methodist Men at Trinity are proud to extend the tradition of the Methodist Men’s Marble. Created by Jesse Shwayder as a symbol of the philosophy upon which he founded the Shwayder Trunk Manufacturing Company (now the Samsonite Corporation), a marble encircled with a band bearing the Golden Rule was initially given to employees and customers as a reminder of the universal doctrine of the Golden Rule. It has since been adopted by many Methodist Men’s organizations across the country.

The marble, until recently, was available in four colors; red, blue, green, and white, and bears a gold imprint of the Golden Rule. However, it is currently out of production. All Methodist Men fortunate enough to have one are encouraged to keep it with them at all times as a sign of fellowship to other Methodist Men. Don’t be caught without your Methodist Men’s marble! EMS – EMS stands for Every Man Shares in Evangelism, Mission and Spiritual Life, another way of saying that God’s men are given the opportunity to share the gifts they have been graciously given by God.  “Encouraged to be doers of the Word, and not merely hearers.” James 1:22 – God’s plan for each of us is finding something new, then to do new things in God’s will.
