Men’s Ministry

United Methodist Men

United Methodist Men (UMM) promotes the spiritual growth of men through effective discipleship and models the servant leadership of Christ in our daily lives. We currently have two UMM groups at First Church.

  • The Tuesday group gathers between 8 & 9 am at Juarez Restaurant on South Mays for food and fellowship. Contact: Rich Thompson at 512.694.6729, or Ben Watson at 512.623.0025.
  • The Wednesday group meets for breakfast and fellowship at 6:15 am on Wednesdays in the Family Life Center. Contact: Steve McCord,

Both groups participate in UMM special events and activities. We love to serve! Several times a year, we spend the weekend cooking either brisket, chicken, or chili, making cobbler, and then showing up on Sunday morning to sell them during the worship services…all of the proceeds to benefit the ministries of First Church. You’ll find us making breakfast for the youth during their retreats, hot dog lunches for the preschool, taking care of our wonderful church property and any other time that we can help!

The UMM Spring Retreat is coming up April 4 – 8
The Spring Retreat will be at the Lakehouse at Willow Point Resort on Lake Buchanan. It is a come and go event with charges only for the time actually spent, so please plan to come even if you are not able to participate the full number of days.  Activities include: eating, domino playing, fishing, reading, napping, tall tale telling, and there are nearby golf courses as well. For more details, contact Steve Oltmanns at 512.636.6299 or
