United Methodist Men

The Elkhorn Hills United Methodist Men’s mission is to support spiritual growth among men, helping men to mature as disciples as they encourage spiritual formation in others.

The men of Elkhorn Hills gather for breakfast and fellowship the 2nd Saturday of the month at 8:00 am in the Conference Room. The men take turns in preparing and serving breakfast. There is also a devotional session, and will, occasionally, do some coordinated mission work around the church afterwards.

You will probably find the men manning grills during church events, as well.

The Elkhorn Hills United Methodist Men have several fundraisers throughout the year to help provide resources to help maintain the church and other mission projects.  Their annual Frozen food sales are held in October/November.
