UMM Matters

Our April breakfast in Neptune was a success as 26 people from 13 UMCs from across the state were in attendance. Rev. Dr. Richard Vance shared many good ideas for growing our UMMs. We’ll be implementing several of his ideas as we strive to help each man with his ongoing connection to God.

Thuy-Lien Nguyen from “Ever So Neat” here in Hackettstown spoke on Getting Organized as You Age in May. She covered such subjects as how to organize and keep important papers and what to do with sentimental items when downsizing. Her presentation was filled with many helpful tips and all who attended came away with valuable information.

June 8th, our Boy Scout Troop #416 will attend and we’ll recognize any boy(s) who achieved Eagle Scout status. The boys will also demonstrate proper handling of the U.S. flag and will retire a flag correctly. We’ll also have our annual election of officers.

Balls and Strikes III plans are complete. Please consider attending either or both events. Registration forms will be available in the worship bulletins and between the Sunday services.

Friday, June 14th, we have tickets to see the Sussex County Miners play an all-star team from Japan. Currently, we have 30 tickets remaining.

Saturday, July 20th is our church bowling date at the Oakwood Bowling Lanes in Washington Township.

We continue to sell Trinity name badges. If you haven’t gotten yours, please look for the order forms around the church. We send in orders whenever we get to about 10 badges. Always remember, UMM is not just for men. We invite all members of Trinity to attend. Among our goals is to provide: a sense of community, a meaningful presentation, and a fantastic breakfast.
