Silver Singles – This group provides opportunities for “adults without partners” to enjoy activities and outings together. When a member plans to attend a movie, play, concert or other activity that person, by copying the email list, can then send an email blast so others can respond and arrangements made. Past activities have included plays at The Dio in Pinckney and Milford High School, concerts in the park, and a holiday concert at the Brighton Center. While no one is in charge or heads the group, anyone who would like to be added to the email list should contact Sandra Thomann at sandraThomann1012@gmail.com.

United Methodist Women – (UMW) offers year-round opportunities for Christian friendship, service, spiritual growth, and education. All women who attend MUMC are invited to the group’s monthly meetings. Women meet in small groups or “Circles.” They include Morning Glories, Mary Martha Circle, and Clara’s Helping Hands. Our UMW also host community events including the Advent Tea, Cookie Walk, Spring Rummage Sale, and Mom-to-Mom sale.

Working Women Small Group – This group is for busy working women who want to find a way to grow spiritually and build closer relationships with other women. A study of the faithful women of the bible who had some of the same struggles as today’s women is an example of what is discussed. The meeting is on the 2nd Thursday of each month from 7-8:30pm.   If you would like more information or to express your interest in joining this small group, please contact Julia Lupinacci through the church office.

Men’s Ministry

Men’s Club – The mission of the Men’s Club is to provide fellowship, community, and service to the church plus spiritual growth activities for the men of the church. All are welcome to be part of the Men’s Club, although traditionally members are adult males affiliated with MUMC. In addition to fellowship, the Men’s Club preforms a number of fundraising activities throughout the year: Milford Memories Lemonade and Roasted Corn Stand, baking and sale of cherry pies (spring), and baking and sale of apple pies (fall). Proceeds from the fundraisers allows the Men’s Club to support other MUMC activities and needs including:  apportionments, organ fund, school backpacks, Appalachian Service Project, Medicine Boxes for Haiti, Other “special needs” as they arise. For more information contact John Olari (MUMC Men’s Club President) through the church office.

Men With Tools – This is a group of volunteers within the church with “fix-it” skills and tools who have the time and ability to repair and maintain the church building and facilities. Although mainly staffed by those who are retired, anyone is welcome. Men With Tools meets the Thursday morning following the third Tuesday of each month. Meetings begin at 8 a.m. with a brief devotion, a cup of coffee, a discussion of projects, and then work commences until about noon. Meetings follow the Board of Trustees Tuesday meeting each month, as their approval of projects and necessary funding is needed. Projects have ranged from outdoor work around the property to changing filters and light bulbs, to installing toilets and repairing plumbing. Projects are suggested by the Board of Trustees, Pastor, and committee and group leaders. For more information, contact Gary Herwick through the church office.
