April & May 2020 Online Catalog
Welcome to our April & May Adult Faith Formation catalog!
In a first for Manchester UMC all of the offerings in this catalog are meeting ONLINE! Our Classes, Groups, & All Church Studies can still be found on our webpage in the places that they have always been. But we also wanted to have this one, comprehensive page available to everyone during this weird season of the church. We pray and hope that there is something in this catalog for you. We have such a variety of groups and classes, with different kinds of folks that meet up and connect with one another. The important thing for us to do during this time of physical distancing is to stay well and stay connected! Now more than ever we need each other to remember who we are and whose we are. Together we can connect, grow, and belong.
All of these groups listed are welcome to everyone, newcomers included! You do not need to register for any of these online groups. Just come on and show up!
How Do I Participate?
Everyone is welcome to participate in any of these online classes or groups. The classes and groups are meeting through a free website/app called ZOOM. You can use your phone, tablet or personal computer. If you are connecting from your computer, you will just go to the website. If you are using your smartphone or tablet, you will need to download the ZOOM app (it’s free).
How Do I Use ZOOM?
It’s easy! Follow these step by step instructions.
1. Go to Zoom.com, a few minutes before your study begins.
2. Click the button in the upper right corner that says “JOIN A MEETING.”
3. Enter the Zoom Required Password that is listed Online Groups & Classes.
4. Enter the Zoom Meeting ID.
ZOOM Tips & Trick
Once you’ve connected, have others help you learn to use your mute function, find how to show and hide your video, and explore the different ways you can view group members.
The important things for you to do during this time of physical distancing are to stay well and connected! Manchester UMC strives to provide these opportunities to help you worship, connect and serve.
Our All Church Study will be continuing on 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. Click on the green All-Church Study button to find a time that works best for you!
