We are a servant leader organization that meets on the third Saturday morning of the month at 7:30 a.m. in Fellowship Hall for breakfast, fellowship, and spiritual growth through programs, speakers and studies.
For more information, watch the United Methodist Men Bulletin Board inside Fellowship Hall, more information and resources are available from the General Commission on United Methodist Men.
Miss a meeting and want to catch up on the program? We have a collection of DVD videos from previous years on file in Valley View’s Library.
A few of our projects and programs include…
- Boy Scouts – The Boy Scouts receive funds from our for equipment and camp scholarships.
- Lazarus Table – We financially support a monthly table at Grand Avenue Temple UMC’s Lazarus Table ministry to feed the homeless of Kansas City.
- Hope Chest Food Pantry – We bring necessary items on a regular basis to keep shelves stocked. Surplus sandwiches are picked up at a local sandwich company and brought to the pantry. We support the First Baptist Church of Stilwell, KS in their distribution of surplus food to the needy and in return we receive additional food to bring to the pantry. We also pick up donated food from grocery stores.
- Cross-Lines – Cross-Lines Community Outreach provides an annual Christmas Store. Valley View United Methodist Men supports this by helping to set up and take down the store, serve guests at the store, and to serve chili to the store workers one day during its one week operation.
- Fundraising – Each year we raise money for special needs around the church.
Jesus recruited his Disciples with no promises of wealth or glory. It was just the opposite. They could take with them “no staff, no bag, no bread, no money, no extra tunic.” What was in it for them? “Whoever loses his life for me will save it.” We can’t top Jesus’ offer. It stands for all time. The stakes are high and the bidding stopped long ago. We can offer you the chance, though, to journey with us – a faithful band of Disciple wanna-be’s who are the Valley View United Methodist Men — a unit of the worldwide General Commission on United Methodist Men.
We are Friends, Followers, and Fishermen!
