United Methodist Men (UMM)
James Jackson United Methodist Men
On the second Sunday of each month (except during the summer), our United Methodist Men meet for breakfast at 8:30am. Named after a long-time member and cook, this men’s group is one of the largest men’s gatherings in our area.
Community, health and Christ are topics for programs at each of these meetings. On holidays family members are invited for food and fellowship. UMMen is not only a dynamic small group at Central, it is a community. UMM strongly supports Habitat for Humanity. At least once a year they participate in building a house. They also support CVAN, CCM, Missionary Baptist Church Breadbasket, Opportunity House, The Arey UMAR Home and others in our area. Globally they support Central's Costa Rica Mission and Operation Christmas Child.
United Methodist Men hosts fellowship events like the Kannapolis Intimidators baseball games, family picnics and Mother's Day breakfast. Their Hot Dog Luncheon is their fundraiser for local charities and missions. They plan a church wide picnic in September at Frank Liske Park.
The Mission of this grand group is "To make men better disciples of Christ through fellowship, education and service." The James Jackson United Methodist Men always welcome new members; the only requirement is to come and enjoy the food and fellowship.
