MEN’S FELLOWSHIP GROUP

Meets 2nd Saturday of each month @ 8:00 AM in Fellowship Hall United Methodist Men is a vibrant organization that provides activities to support the men of the church along with various committees and groups:  “People, Pancakes, Praise & Church Business”.  Featuring monthly speakers, topics will always be based on balancing Spirituality, Friends, Family, Career, and Health.  Our aim is to offer spiritual fulfillment to men of all ages and places in their faith journey! Please refer questions to Brian Turnbull; (248)-505-6849 or brianpturnbull@gmail.com.

GAY SPIRITUAL SUPPORT GROUP

This group was formed over 15 years ago to support Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender people on their faith journeys. In a safe, confidential environment where we are affirmed and recognized as created and loved by God, we seek to expand the light and love of God within us all. Some of us are members of Northville FUMC or other churches; while some have no religious affiliation, but are healing from past experiences with unwelcoming religious families or faith communities. Visit our page for meeting times and event information.

JUST OLDER YOUTH (JOY) FELLOWSHIP GROUPS

Opportunities for worship, learning, fellowship, faith sharing and service that help older adults (60+) continue to grow in their faith and be actively involved in the life of the church through lunch groups, touring groups, speakers, special events, and more. These activities are organized/hosted by one of the following three groups.  You may participate at anytime.

  • JOY POTLUCK & PROGRAM LUNCHEONS

     Join us quarterly for a potluck and program luncheon.  It’s a wonderful time to fellowship with others over favorite shared recipes followed by an entertaining program.  Watch bulletin or weekly newsletter for schedule upcoming events or contact Gail Jiskra at 248-752-5850 or gailjiskra@gmail.com with any questions.

  • AMAZING GRAYS

    The senior group called the Amazing Grays is planning some fun activities again as we have enjoyed in the past. Most of the activities will be in the Detroit metro area and some might be a little farther from home. It will be a good chance to have fellowship with others, make new friends and go places that we may not have seen before. The activities that are farther from home will start at the lower lobby at church so we can car-pool. If it is a nearby location, we will all meet at the destination. Sometimes it may involve lunch or dessert. We will not adhere to a fixed date or time each month. Watch bulletin or weekly newsletter for schedule upcoming events or contact Russ Dore’ at 248-349-1052 or russdore@yahoo.com with any questions.

  • SENIOR LUNCH BUNCH

    Join us in fellowship at a lunch out on the second Monday of the month. It is a great opportunity to meet and be with other Senior members of our Church for good food, fellowship, and great conversations. Most current lunch location information can be found on our News & Events page or you can contact Dennis and Vicki Kunick at dennkuni@wowway.com or 734-358-1509.

GARDENING @ FUMC

Were you aware of the beautiful gardens here at FUMC? If connecting with God through nature is your thing, you’ll appreciate the opportunities to do so here at our facility. Most gardens are a bit hidden from you as you drive by, but we have many we would like you to know about.  To view some snapshots, CLICK HERE! The PATH @ FUMC is located throughout our gardens and is a place where you can meditate, pray, journal, read, contemplate, convene, and picnic. The Path is waiting for you to walk humbly with our Creator God. Bring a friend or find time on your own to explore, unplug, stroll, wander or sit on a bench and breathe in the quiet.  For information on The PATH, Click Here. If you are interested in helping to maintain our gardens and FUMC grounds, volunteers are always welcome! We are also considering expanding on these current gardens, and are seeking volunteers to help with the long-term plans as we move forward. For more information, please contact Tracy Ortlieb at tortlieb@fumcnorthville.org.
