Explore Missional Opportunities
Manchester UMC is a church that strives to follow our scriptural calling to serve God by serving our neighbor. Putting our faith into action is a core value that we seek to live out by helping those who are vulnerable and struggling among us. This happens through a variety of missional programs and activities that we plan ourselves and/or partner with others in order to make a positive impact in our community.
Regardless of your age, ability, or experience, we host several on-going opportunities on-site for you to put faith and love into action by becoming the hands and feet of Jesus Christ in our communities, nation, and world.
