Who We Are
Englewood United Methodist Men
Welcome to the Englewood United Methodist Men’s (EUMM) home page. Here we will provide you with information about our group, how it functions and information on its programs and services.
The purpose of EUMM is to declare the centrality of Christ in every man’s life and to model the servant leadership of Jesus Christ. These men, partnering with their pastor(s), invite and initiate fellowship, spiritual growth and service opportunities for all men.
Individual and group strategies form the foundation of Englewood United Methodist Men’s ministry. These include:
- A demonstrated commitment to prayer, gifts and service in congregational and community life; and
- Assistance and support to men in their ever-changing relationships, roles and responsibilities in the family setting, workplace, retirement and in our community.
Men seeking membership in Englewood United Methodist Men will be asked to subscribe to the major strategies listed above and to the following personal objectives to:
- engage daily in Bible study and prayer;
- bear witness to Christ’s way in daily work and in all personal contacts through words and actions; and
- engage in Christian Service.
We accomplish many of these strategies and objectives through our Programs and Services listed below.
The Englewood United Methodist Men are governed by a Board of Directors. Learn more about our governance.

A) Men’s Fellowship and Prayer Breakfast: The Englewood United Methodist Men gather in Fellowship Hall for a breakfast on Monday mornings from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. The breakfast begins with a fellowship time followed by the best breakfast in town. The remainder of the time is devoted to organizational business, prayer and devotions. Participants also engage in fellowship, a discussion of current affairs, and participate in devotions. Participation is encouraged from all church men and to the men in the community.
B) Country Breakfast: The Englewood United Methodist Men provide a Country Breakfast for the church and community. These breakfasts are held on alternate Saturday mornings, from November to March.

The net income is distributed for many needs and has varied over the 40 years of this Breakfast. Click for more information about the Country Breakfast.
