All-Church Study

Manchester UMC Chapel

Welcome to our October Sermon Series and All-Church Study, Turning the World Upside Down!

Turning the World Upside Down is a 4-week series and study that are meant to guide and assist our congregation through a visioning process. Each week participants will watch that week’s sermon and then participate in a small group over ZOOM or in homes following distancing requirements.

This study has been produced in-house and includes Bible study, reflections on the sermon, and specific questions about who we are at Manchester UMC. The answers to these questions will be submitted and given back to church leadership. Over the next year (2021) that data will be used to create the 2022-2026 strategic plan for our church.

We realize that most of us have busy schedules, so know that it’s okay if you need to miss some of the 4 sessions (no judgement) – just sign-up, download the Discussion Guide and attend as you are able. Now is the time to voice your ideas and opinions to influence the future of our church!

Sermon Topics

All four sessions of your group discussion will go hand-in-hand with that week’s corresponding sermon:

• Turning the World Upside Down
• Why We Do What We Do
• Let the Light Shine
• Entirely Sanctified
