Fairfields United Methodist Men
I was glad when they said to me,
Let us go into the house of the Lord
Our motto is "Men growing in Christ so others may know Christ." Our mission is to come together in Christian Fellowship and to reach out to those less fortunate than ourselves.
The men's group consists of men from Fairfields UMC in Burgess and Afton UMC in Ophelia. The two churches make up the Northumberland Charge United Methodist Men.
We participate in the life of the church through our involvement in the many activities and infrastructure of the church.

Our meetings are usually held on the last Saturday of each month at 8:30 a.m. and include breakfast. The location alternates between the two churches. The men from Galilee United Methodist Church in Edwardsville are invited. And you are invited!
Most men enjoy, and believe that we're good at, fixing and building things; and we like to achieve. To those ends, we undertake work parties to keep the church physically attractive and functional. We also serve our community through needed repairs and minor construction for the infirmed or less fortunate in our area, most often in cooperation with Christian Men United.
We also strive to have an interesting and fun group. We generally have speakers at our meetings on a variety of topics. We have open discussion. And we often go on Field Trips to local businesses, museums and other places of interest.
Try us out.
