Online All-Church Study
Our All-Church Study will be continuing online until we are all back together again! There will be new curriculum produced weekly, still based off of Pastor Andy’s sermons. These studies are open to everyone with no homework required. Multiple groups are meeting throughout the week. See below which time works best for you!
The important things for you to do during this time of physical distancing are to stay well and stay connected! Manchester UMC strives to provide these opportunities to help you worship, connect and serve.

October 2020 All-Church Visioning Study
This October, Manchester UMC will be participating in an All-Church Visioning Study! You may be wondering what exactly that is. Our All Church Visioning Study is like our previous All Church Studies in that it is based on the accompanying sermon series for the month of October, it will be a Bible Study, it will be produced in-house and we want as many people to participate as possible. It will be different in that this study is a VISIONING PROCESS for our entire church. Participant will get the chance to share their feels about which ministries they feel are the impacting us, and the community, the most. Groups will share the data that they gather through their conversations back with the leadership of Manchester UMC. As we progress through the year 2021, that data will influence and inspire the church wide strategic plan for years 2022-2026! Please begin to prayerfully consider if you are being called to facilitate one of these small groups, and also, when you plan on attending. The groups will meet over ZOOM. Large groups will be broken into “breakout rooms” (smaller groups) of about 10 people so that we can get everyone’s feedback.
