A Note from Pastor Winter hamilton

Together, we study and learn about our faith...

Greetings Beloved Community!

My name is Pastor Winter Hamilton and and I am the Associate Pastor of Faith Formation here at Manchester UMC.

Manchester UMC’s Adult Faith Formation Program provides opportunities to know God more deeply through intentional faith development and connection to community.

Whether you are seeking to study and learn about your faith, or are searching for authentic community in which to know and be known, we have options for you.

In our Spring Catalog, you will find all of the current classes that we offer. These classes meet throughout the week, online and in-person. Some of these classes are short term and some are long term.

Our weekly Sermon Reflection Study is produced in-house based on the sermon for the week. The Sermon Reflection Study allows for groups to grow deeper in faith and community. There are many different groups that meet throughout the week, and are open to everyone with no homework required.

Twice a year Manchester UMC offers an All Church Study. Offered at different times throughout the week, the All Church Study is a great way to get plugged into a group, without long-term commitment. The All Church Study takes place every Fall and every Spring during Lent.

Are you currently, or are interested in being an Adult Faith Formation leader? Check out our Leader Resource page for helpful links and more information.

There is always an opportunity for you to connect with others, and to grow deeper in your faith and commitment to God here at Manchester UMC.  Please know that I am here to help you get plugged into a class.  Reach out to me at any time.  Community matters.  Our faith is not meant to be practiced alone. Let’s do this church thing together!
