We are glad that your are visiting our web page, and we look forward to meeting you in person. You are invited to join us in worship. You will find our church family to be welcoming, warm and inviting. We are a church of open hearts, open minds, and open doors. As we worship together, may God’s grace fill you, Christ’s love empower you, and the Spirit’s presence comfort you.
We believe that God is the creator of the universe and giver of all that is good. God is the Savior—known intimately in Jesus and his life, death, and resurrection—who shows us how to live and love.
We believe that Jesus is the Son of God, who opens our eyes to a world of mystery, miracle, and meaning.
We believe that, as the Church, we are called to heal a broken and hurting world, and to be a place where justice is proclaimed and lives are transformed.
Manchester United Methodist Church
God calls us to worship together; for it is in a community that we grow in faith, receive support and encouragement. You will be warmly greeted by persons eager to see you and make you feel at home. Our service is traditional and Christ-centered, filled with the sound of voices praising God in song, the music from our youth and prayerful hearts lifted in thanksgiving to God. The Word of God preached in thought-provoking sermons, relevant to your life.
