Seasonal Mission 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.



MO-Hab is committed to raising funds and awareness for adequate and affordable housing.  MO-Hab sponsors benefit bicycle rides to raise funds for Habitat for Humanity St. Louis which lends a hand-up for families to afford a home.  Our faith calls us to be the hands and feet of Jesus in fellowship with others.
