Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. ~1 Timothy 4:12
This is Manny.
He’s our mummy.
We are MUMY.
Manchester United Methodist Youth.
MUMY’s vision is to introduce students to Jesus Christ through fellowship, inform students of Jesus Christ through Scripture, and connect students to Jesus Christ through the church.”
Welcome! All students in grades 6-12 are invited to participate in our ministries, led by our wonderful adult volunteers. MUMY ministries are unique in several ways:
Small groups are the central components of our Youth Ministry. Although we do meet together each Sunday night and host numerous events that are open to all students, small groups are where activities, mission, deep discussion, student leadership, retreats, and outreach happen.
At MUMY, all students can expect to be acting upon what we learn in tangible and cooperative ways. We take seriously the concepts of a "Social Gospel," the "Connectional Church," and Jesus' desire in John 17 that we "all be one." God calls, and we respond . . . together.
Students are our leaders. We recognize that each student is gifted differently, and we seek to integrate these gifts into what we do. Our adults are some of the best Christian coaches anywhere, but our students steer our course.
In order to provide a safe place for all children and youth to grow in faith, all persons working with children and youth must be Safe Sanctuary Certified at MUMC. Each United Methodist Congregation is mandated by the 2000 General Conference to have in place a Child Protection Policy. Ours has been in place since 1998 and is reviewed and updated each year. The training consists of attendance at a one-hour class and the completion of a Covenant/Application and background check form. After the paperwork is completed, an interview is scheduled with a designated staff member and an Identification badge is issued.
