United Methodist Men
The men’s fellowship at Tempe First UMC is a place for fun and friendship, a place to explore deeper questions of faith and life and build strong relationships with one another.
We meet every Tuesday morning, bright and early, at 6:30 a.m. for an hour of Bible study and conversation, breakfast, prayer and mutual support. Our Bible Study is highly interactive, a time for conversation, sharing and discussion about how we live our faith. Our focus is to grow in our life of faith and support each other in the difficult role of being men in today’s world with the multiple responsibilities and challenges we face in our work, our relationships, and Christian life.
Annually men of all ages gather in Prescott for a weekend full of laughter, song, and study.

About United Methodist Women…
UMW is for women of all ages and interests. We meet in small fellowship groups — morning, afternoon or evening — on a monthly basis for fun and programs. Our purpose is to know God and experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ, to develop a creative, supportive fellowship and to extend the concept of missions through participation in global ministries of the church. All UMW groups are open to all women.
