The Serving Spoon

The Serving Spoon is committed to serving dinner to those who need a helping hand and kind word. No one is turned away. There is always room at the table.

Dinner is served each Thursday at 6:00 PM.

The Serving Spoon is an outreach started by a group of people who wanted to fill a need in the community.  It is located at 480 W. Main St. in Franklin, in the green building at the park.

Each week a different church, group or family provides wonderful food for everyone.  These people also help serve and clean up.  Memorial United Methodist is among those who help out, and will be providing the food three times this year.  The Serving Spoon is now directly handled by Macon New Beginnings.

We welcome both guests and volunteers to join us.

United Methodist Men

The United Methodist Men provides the men of the church a point of connection to other men and opportunities to serve others. 

The UMM meet year-round, usually monthly and on a Saturday morning. Following a hearty group breakfast, we enjoy a program or project together.

The United Methodist Men had a very productive 2017. According to the UMM President, Larry Rasche, their accomplishments for last year included:  delivered 7 to 8 loads of firewood to those in need in the community; contributed $100 towards a heater for someone with no heat; contributed over $300 to the church’s Holiday Angels program; planned and held and area wide chili cook off, raising $950 for their ministry; delivered firewood and a complete turkey dinner for Christmas dinner for an area family; contributed cash to needy families in Cartoogechaye and beyond; contributed $100 to the West Macon fire and rescue (towards their kids’ program); built a protected stockpile of firewood; gathered 10 loads of firewood for distribution to the surrounding community; contributed approx.. $375 for rental assistance to a needy family and contributed $250 toward the CCF (Cartoogechaye Christian Fellowship) ministry. Throughout the year, they provided the men of the church an opportunity for Christian fellowship and service to our neighbors. They tried to be “doers of the word and not hearers only”.
