Project & Event Request

Manchester UMC’s Projects & Events Coordinator is available to provide assistance to ministry leaders with upcoming ministry projects or events.

As a team, the ministry leader(s) and the Projects & Events Coordinator will work together in planning and creating a successful project or event from an idea to implementation.

If questions, please email the Projects & Events Coordinator.

Project vs. Event

A project can be developed to happen one time or multiple times. An event can be a one time occasion that takes place or an on-going occasion that happens multiple times over the course of a time period.

Lead Times

Due to the active nature of the congregation, it is important to allow plenty of lead time for best results. When planning for your ministry’s program, activity, or event, please factor the lead times into your schedule.

*Please note: Lead times may vary and are subject to change for each project or event, depending on the level of planning or involvement needed. Here are some examples:

  • One Time Project: 6-8 weeks notice
  • On-Going Project: 6-8 weeks for original notice with scheduled check-ins
  • One Time Event: 3-6 months notice
  • On-Going Event: 3-6 months for original notice with scheduled check-ins
