Grow Men's Group -  meets the first Wednesday of each month from 6:30 p.m. to approximately 8:00 p.m. - meal at 6:30 p.m., program at 7:00 p.m.  All men are welcome to come check it out!
The purpose of GROW is "helping each other grow spiritually, so we can help others". We hope to experience God, develope leadership, form friendships, and help others. Our Toolkit involves prayer, worship, Bible, service, relationship, and giving--- all ways to GROW.
We support church activities such as prayer partnership with the Senior High youth, provided meals for two WNYG youth nights, provided pledge funds to the Outreach Center operations and to the Columbus Rescue Mission, helped with UMW’s soup day, helped with the snow removal project, and provided funds to youth missions and Camp Fontanelle. 
The chartered UMMen group meets Wednesday mornings in Fellowship Hall at 6:30 for breakfast and fellowship and learning through group study and discussion. Come join us for food, fellowship, spiritual  growth and service.
We support Camp Fontanelle, Columbus Rescue Mission, Strength for Service devotionals for the military, and other missions. We host the Easter Sunrise breakfast and host the Valentine Dinner and Program with lots of help from the youth. We also help the women with their Souper Soup meal in November.
The local officers are Chuck Oxley-President, Bob Williams-Vice President, Doug Kallesen-Treasurer/Secretary-Communicator, and Tim Owens-Teacher.
The Columbus men carry on the local mission of "helping men grow in Christ, so that others may know Christ" and are a chartered unit organized under the General Commission on United Methodist Men. For more general UMMen information, click on the General Commission website link that follows:
