UNITED METHODIST MEN aspire to the three F's

Friends - through Evangelism in the belief that every United Methodist Man deserves a few bonded brothers.

Fishermen - on a Mission involved in meaningful work - first in their families and local congregation - then in workplace witness, service work, missions, and outreach.

Followers - of the Spiritual Life - committed personally to daily prayer and Bible study, accountable relationships, and actively seeking God's will in their lives.

Previous Events


January 17, 2018 -  Twenty-six men attended our January 17th UMM fellowship meeting. After a delicious chili dinner, Guest Speaker and Sea Scouts Leader, Skipper Brittney Talicuran, provided an intro and slide show overview of the Sea Scouts organization and their local Ship (Ship is similar to a Troop in scouting), which consists of 10 scouts and 18 adults. She invited any/all UMM to come out with them, to participate in any activities, to come teach the crew any special skills, and to support in any way they can/want. One of the men offered to donate all his fishing gear. Following a fun and informative Q & A period, SUMM presented Brittney with a $200 donation check and a case of our world famous peanuts.

 


December 8, 2017 -  SUMM Church-wide Christmas Banquet with a special music presentation, songs, and praise was held in the Assembly Hall (Bldg 3). David Johnson joined Wild Honey (Angie Cooper & Matt Miller) for some of their songs.

 

September 20, 2017 — Our UMM invited the congregation to a ‘Birds of the Coastal Coast’ program by Jim Craig. The photos were beautiful and information was very detailed.

About Our Swansboro United Methodist Men’s Peanuts  

<-- Click on picture for larger view

In 1986 the Swansboro United Methodist Men (SUMM) began cooking peanuts and they haven’t stopped! Our “Peanut Cookers” get together two or three times each month to cook, label, and package peanuts. The peanuts are distributed through the church office, at many merchants in Eastern North Carolina, and via email and online orders throughout the world. The net proceeds (in excess of $25,000 annually) are donated to more than 55 local and worldwide missions, agencies, and needy individuals.


These peanuts are available in individual 7 ounce jars for donations of $3.50 each, or $30 for a case ($12 discount!) of 12 jars (lightly salted, unsalted, or both). Peanuts are shipped by the case only.

If UMM ships the peanuts, add the FedEx shipping charges, which vary from about $11/case to $18/case, depending on the zone. Remote areas may be as high as $25/case. FedEx requires a physical address and telephone number for delivery. To determine the shipping amount, go to the FedEx website.

Our zip code is 28584 and the shipping weight is 11 pounds per case. The lightly salted peanuts are shipped if a preference is not designated. An invoice is included in the shipping envelope on the box (or one box, if many) unless a separate billing address is designated. The UMM appreciate payment upon receipt of the peanuts. Costs for shipping to military persons may vary.

In addition to being a treat for all of us, they make wonderful gifts. Share the crunch and flavor with others and help our mission projects.

Orders received (by completing and submitting the online form below, emailing information to Peanuts@SwansboroUMC.org, or calling the church office) by early Wednesday will usually be shipped on Thursday. Name, Address, Phone Number, and Quantity information is required. Upon receiving your invoice, please submit amount due to:
Swansboro United Methodist Men - Peanuts
665 West Corbett Avenue
Swansboro, NC  28584-8451

Donating Peanuts to Service Personnel Serving Overseas:
