United Methodist Men (UMM) connects men of FUMC to Elgin District and Northern Illinois Conference UMM programs, and to the General Commission on United Methodist Men. Men of FUMC participate in Lenten and Advent worship services, Spiritual Congress retreat, and surplus food distribution with other men of Elgin district and the Northern Illinois Conference. UMM of FUMC sponsors Boy Scout Troop 209, Cub Scout Pack 209 and meets with scouts and their leaders annually for a review of activities.

After a rousing successful spring training breakfast celebrating the Cubs World Series victory, the men will be picking up some 2000 pounds of potatoes for delivery to the Palatine Food Pantry on April 1.

We are currently in the planning stages of an all church golf event to be held at Twin Lakes Golf Course in June. Later this summer, we will host the second annual FUMC/BOY SCOUTS INVITATIONAL to be held Saturday, August 27. The first year drew 120 for lunch with participation by 42 teams.

The men’s team continues to grow in events like Trunk or Treat held in October and serves over 300 of our little citizens in costume and their parents. We also reach out to our neighbors and embrace our community as individuals by serving the township, the homeless, and others in need.

We are always looking for new members to share the fun and joy our activities bring to others and ourselves. Men of the church, consider joining us for God’s glory.

If you have questions and/or wish to become a team member, please contact the church office.
