Manchester UMC specializes in frequent, diverse, and world-class worship. We have services that feature both traditional and contemporary worship.
Our weekend worship schedule:
Saturdays, 4 and 5:30 p.m.
Traditional-casual worship in our historic chapel
An intimate, informal, hour-long worship service in our 150-year-old chapel, led by Rev. Stephanie Lendt. Lectionary-based preaching, prayers, hymns, and primarily traditional music in the form of jazz, gospel, Celtic, contemporary & chamber styles (Woods Mill Ensemble) and classic organ.
Sundays, 8 and 11:00 a.m.
Traditional worship in our large, beautiful sanctuary
Traditional worship at Manchester United Methodist Church embraces rituals and hymns tailored to the message of the day, preached by Rev. Greg Weeks. Music is an important part of this worship, with each service featuring hymns (old and new), a variety of musical groups, and a newly renovated organ (fall 2015!). Our 156-member Chancel Choir sings at the 11 a.m. service throughout the school year.
Sundays, 9:30 a.m.
Modern worship in our large, beautiful sanctuary
The modern service at MUMC provides a vibrant and relevant worship experience, led by a Praise and Worship Team that includes drums, guitar and keyboard as well as other instrumentation. This service embraces more modern language and music, with Senior Pastor Greg Weeks and Young Adult Pastor Winter Hamilton sharing preaching responsibilities.
Sundays, 5 p.m.
Ancient-new worship in our historic chapel
A very traditional service for very modern people.
The 5:00 p.m. Sunday Worship Service is a place where modern and postmodern ideas intersect with traditional worship practices. With an emphasis on the church seasons, and contemplative/meditative practices, this service invites you to experience God deeply through scripture, classic hymns, weekly communion, and prayer both spoken and sung. Led by Rev. Winter Hamilton.
Sundays, 6:30 p.m. (throughout the school year beginning in mid-August)
MUMY Youth Group in the Chapel
This short worship service, which happens during Youth Group, is led by MUMY students. It incorporates music, drama, guest speakers from our church community and more to illustrate matters of faith that are relevant to mid-high and senior high students.
