Men of Faith
... for God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything. - 1 John 3:20
Through study, prayer, service and fellowship we are making disciples by connecting men with God, our church, our community and each other. God works for good in all things, and Men of Faith wants to help all men become Greater Than themselves by joining in God's work.

Men of Faith Connections
Once a month, during the school year, men of FUMCR and their guests gather to connect with each other, the church, and our faith over dinner and an inspirational program.
All men, high school age and up, are invited. No reservation needed.
Thurs, Jan 18 • 6 pm Dinner, 7 pm Program • Coleman Family Hall
To start things off for 2018, the Men of Faith leadership team has changed the program up a bit for January's meeting. Instead of a guest speaker we would like to hear from you, the men of FUMCR. In this open forum we hope to exchange thoughts and ideas about what you are looking for in a men's ministry and discuss how we can grow both collectively and individually to make a bigger difference in our church, our community and our own lives this year as Christian men. It is a new year and new beginning. Join us as we approach the first tee of 2018 together. In the spirit of the event we will also have a drawing to win a prize from Top Golf!
