Roger, Arlie, and Wayne shown above
United Methodist Men president Arlie and five helpers, including his daughter, Carrie, his son-in-law, Roger, Wayne, and Doug begin work on a ramp, fulfilling a need.
The United Methodist Men of First United Methodist Church Hemphill paid for the materials, and the president coordinated the time, brought the tools, and also dug all the holes.
Persons seeking membership in a local United Methodist Men’s fellowship shall subscribe to the major concerns listed above and to these personal objectives:
To engage daily in Bible study and prayer.
To bear witness to Christ’s way in daily work and in all personal contacts through words and actions.
To engage in some definite Christian service.
