United Methodist Men LogoThe United Methodist Men meet at 6:00 pm on the 1st Tuesday of the month at the church fellowship hall.  All who wish to grow in faith are welcome (often we have food.)


The purpose of the United Methodist Men is to declare the centrality of
 Christ in every man’s life. This purpose is served as men are called to 
model the servant leadership of Jesus Christ.

Cunningham’s United Methodist Men began as an outgrowth of a monthly 
men’s luncheon at a local restaurant. In the spring of 2007, Emerson
 Shelton, pastor of Cunningham, suggested that we form our own U.M.M. 
group. In May, with a president, treasurer, and several charter members, we 
had our first meeting. The group decided that the youth of the community
 would be a priority for us. It was a simple statement with far-reaching 

Since then, Cunningham’s United Methodist Men have consistently paid for youth who desire to attend summer camp and retreats at camp Westview-on- the-James in Goochland County. We have given scholarships to graduating 
seniors. We have sponsored many activities for kids such as: swimming,
 floating down the James River, ice skating, and going to the movies. The 
group completes building projects like the educational building located
 beside the church, and we were instrumental in setting up the ark on the
 playground. In the spring several of the men participate in a workday at 
Westview-on-the-James in conjunction with Pastor Shelton’s U.M.M. group
 from Richmond. We also send packages to soldiers at various times during
 the year. In order to afford all of this, the men split, stack, and deliver
 firewood. We also smoke our own barbecue for sale twice a year. Cunningham United Methodist Men meet on the first Tuesday of each
 month at 6:00 pm. We have a meal, a devotional program, and a business
 meeting. It is open to all mcen of the church who wish to grow in their faith
 and make our youth a priority.
