United Methodist Men
The United Methodist Men (UMM) is a fellowship of men who seek to know Christ, are willing to help others and to do God's will.
The UMM at St. Andrews Parish UMC is active in all church activities and sponsors youth participation in Salkehatchie Summer Service through annual fundraisers. Meetings are held at the church on the second Thursday of each month, and men of all ages are encouraged to attend.
United Methodist Women
The United Methodist Women (UMW) at St. Andrews Parish UMC is a wonderful group of caring women. The group is open to all women and offers opportunities for spiritual growth, fellowship and community service. Members of the UMW seek to know God and participate in both local and global missions.
The UMW group hosts several fundraisers each year including a Soup Sale, Lenton Luncheon and Bake Sales. Proceeds support the Bethlehem Centers of Columbia and Spartanburg, the Killingsworth Home in Columbia, the Wallace Family Life Center in Bennettsville and Rural Mission in Johns Island. The UMW also contributes to Vacation Bible School, Crisis Ministry, Red Bird Mission, Marion Mission Storehouse and many more. UMW scholarships are also awarded to deserving students who are enrolled in continuing education.
Two circles meet each month, excluding July and August. The Joy Circle meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 10:00 AM, and the Genesis Circle meets on the second Thursday evening at 7:00 PM.

Inspired by Acts 2:46-47, ACTS 2 endeavors to bring together Christians of all ages for activities, trips and service initiatives. Activities and trips typically fall on the last Thursday of the month. These gatherings are open to anyone who wants to participate, and transportation is frequently provided. ACTS 2 updates are published on the SAPUMC blog and in our monthly newsletter, The Parish Post.
