United Methodist Men
St. Luke’s United Methodist Men is a brotherhood of men: sharpening one another, growing in faith, learning to serve.
We do a lot of things around the church and community, but our number one thing is brotherhood—men who are bonded to one another and supporting one another on their journeys. We realize that “brotherhood” is perhaps too daunting a concept at first glance, so we’ve broken it into three foundations we will emphasize.
The first of these is fellowship. Fellowship can take many forms—it can be a group of guys playing softball, or it can be that same group gathering at a bar to watch the game. It could be 30 men coming to church on Saturday morning for breakfast, or it could be a smaller group gathering during the week for prayer and accountability. We recognize that fellowship can take many different forms, but it is vital to a man’s soul to connect with other men.
Another key component of our vision statement is growth. We build fellowship not just to have fun, but in order to push and sharpen one another in our walks with Christ. There are lots of areas where men can grow—as fathers, husbands, friends, leaders, Christians—and we’re seeking to put into place programs that help men grow in each of those areas. One participant in our Raising a Modern Day Knight study remarked, “I look forward to our meetings, because it gives me one hour each week to step back and think strategically about how I’m leading my family.” That’s exactly the kind of growth we’re aiming for—that opportunity for strategic reflection is what all men need.
And finally, we close with service because we understand that, bottom line, if we’re not serving our church and our world, our neighbors, and our families—well, then, we’re missing the mark. But we also want to be specific about how we’re serving our world—by building better men, by building the kind of brotherhood where we sharpen one another in faith and push one another to grow.

A Casual Monthly Fellowship
Meet new friends and catch up with old ones during our monthly fellowship; we meet on the third Wednesday of the month at 8:30pm. This evening will be a place for men to gather and share about life and faith in a relaxed atmosphere. We meet in the Brickyard Room at the Rusty Bucket just east of Ditch Road (1130 West 86th Street). Please contact David Gard (email@example.com or 501-8828) if you can make it. Or just show up five minutes late. It's cool..
All men are invited to our monthly breakfast on the first Saturday of every month in Fellowship Hall at 8am. We offer a hearty breakfast, fellowship, and an interesting program. Come join us! We would like to get an accurate count for food planning, so please let us know if you can make it! Email Mike at firstname.lastname@example.org to say you can make it.
