The men sponsor including a monthly breakfast on the 4th Saturday of each month. They also sponsor annual events such as the Valentine’s Day Dinner for the ladies of the church, an Easter breakfast, a Mother’s Day lunch and a cookout every October.

All the women of the McCordsville United Methodist Church are United Methodist Women. This group of dedicated women meet every first Tuesday at noon for a Day Circle pitch-in luncheon, at the church. The exception is the month of December when a Christmas Brunch replaces the Day Circle luncheon. As a bonus, at each meeting a member of the group shares a story or lesson with the group. Additionally, an offering is collected at each event to support the women's efforts such as taking care of the kitchen needs and equipment, supporting Vacation Bible School and other needs. The women are also responsible for providing the delicious monthy dinners on the second Saturday of each month.
The women of this church support many organizations including the Red Bird Mission, Lucille Raines Home, the Christian Children’s Home in Fortville and the School of Mission.
