Opportunities for Fellowship

United Methodist Women (UMW)


1st Tuesday of each month
Contact: Diane Lawless
United Methodist Women is a community of women whose purpose is to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative, supportive fellowship; and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church. Hodgenville United Methodist Women focuses on ministries with women, children, and youth. Some of their special events throughout the year include a free yard sale in the fall, a blanket ministry for members facing health issues, bereavement meals, shoebox ministries, and many other activities. United Methodist Women are mission driven with a passion for learning about ministries around the world and adapting some of them to meet needs in our local area. “What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.” James 2:14-17 

United Methodist Men (UMM)


2nd Saturday of each month
Contact: Randy Osburn
United Methodist Men is a creative fellowship to help men grow in Christ so others may know Him. Men come together to grow as Christians who are disciples and servants as they live in the Word of God and seek to witness Christ as Lord and Savior. Our men are very mission minded and do many projects to help those in need, make needed church repairs, and assist with Lincoln Days by providing parking at the church and transportation to the festival. Special activities include skeet shoots, Derby Dinner party for the women of the church, Mardi Gras meal, pancake suppers, weekend retreats, and help with food pantry. “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.” Hebrews 10:24

“Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 ESV
