FUMC Natchitoches’ United Methodist Men, joined by a contingent from Asbury UMC, met April 15 for their monthly breakfast meeting. United Methodist Men District President David Byerley visited the meeting, speaking about the role of men in the Church. The chapter awarded a $500 scholarship to NCHS senior Matthew Brown to attend NSU where he plans on majoring in secondary education. The scholarship is endowed at the NSU Foundation and is named in honor of the late Raymond Christenson, a longtime member a FUMC’s United Methodist Men’s chapter, a stalwart member of FUMC and a long-time member of the Lions Club.

The United Methodist Men meet at FUMC on Second Street in Natchitoches on the 3rd Sunday of every month at 7:30. They invite the men of the parish to come, enjoy what is arguably the best breakfast in town, and learn of ways to be of service to their family, church and community.
