Presbyterian Men
Ned Kraft



MISSION STATEMENT – To lead Presbyterian Men into a vital relationship with Jesus Christ and to assist in their spiritual, personal and community development.

Welcome 2019, I hope everyone had a blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year. We finished 2018 by making a donation to Brandon Wilson from the Veterans Restoration Quarters to help homeless Veterans in Western North Carolina. The total amount of our donation for 2018 was $7,100.00. Thank you to all who donated to this worthy cause and those who helped raise the funds.

All men are invited to join the Presbyterian Men's Group. We have a weekly lunch, monthly breakfast and a monthly meeting. Occasionally, we take a day trips. We are working on setting up some day trips to interesting places nearby. We will begin planning our activities in January, including raising money to help Homeless Veterans in Western North Carolina


Our monthly meetings are on the first Monday of the month and coincide with the Ruth's Circle meeting at 7:00 pm in Tartan Hall.

     We glorify God thru Christian fellowship and our annual fund raiser for homeless veterans is the hallmark of who we are and what we do. In addition to this effort we do a lot of  things year round that you will find fun and interesting.  All our activities are voluntary and take into account that you may have a busy life and don’t want to be tied down to a constant responsibility. Participation is totally up to you depending on your schedule. Our members "plug in” to help where they can.

     We would like to invite any of our men to join our group. 

Contact Ned Kraft 828-369-0768 or email:, if you are interested.

Attention Men:







 It’s a great time  . . .
