Sue Belval

Leadership Board Member: 2022-2024

My husband, Jim, and I moved back from Frankfurt, Germany with our two children in 1982 and began looking for a church home. We were very impressed with Manchester UMC and the quality of the worship services and music programs.

We quickly enrolled our daughter in the Circle of Friends Preschool and became members of MUMC.  I was recruited at our new member breakfast to accompany a children’s choir and have continued in that role ever since.

Our children were confirmed, attended Sunday school, youth groups, Children’s and Youth Choirs, Confirmation. Both of our kids were married in our Church and have raised their families in this church. Our son and his family have transferred their membership to Covenant Presbyterian.

I have served on Staff Parrish, chaired the Music Committee, been in charge of VBS music for multiple years, served on the Mission Committee, worked to help organize several Social Justice Programs, and have been a member of Chancel Choir and Coventry Choir for over thirty years.

I teach piano privately and love being in relationship with young people and helping them learn how to express themselves musically. 

Jim and I are excited and proud of the vision and mission of Manchester UMC and I look forward to trying to support the church in any way that I can.
