There are numerous opportunities for ministry here at Manning United Methodist Church.
We currently have two worship services. Our Sunday morning worship service is a more traditional service and starts at 10:30 am. Friday evenings we have The Source worship service, which is a shorter, more contemporary worship service. It starts at 6:00 pm.
We offer Sunday school classes for preschool through grade 12 every Sunday at 9:15 am. Classes run from September through April.
The Source of Recovery
The Source is a short Christian service open to anyone of any denomination or no denomination at all. It lasts 30 minutes, followed by pizza and an hour-long Bible study using the Recovery Bible. Anyone is welcome who suffers, or has suffered, from any of life's trials, which means EVERYONE! If you are around the area and don't have a ride, please call and we will arrange one for you. FREE CHILDCARE IS AVAILABLE.
United Methodist Women - (UMW)
United Methodist Women is the largest denominational faith organization for women with approximately 800,000 members whose mission is fostering spiritual growth, developing leaders and advocating for justice.
The Manning United Methodist Women meet monthly in the homes of different members and share in a program discussion. They provide luncheons after funerals, serve breakfast for the graduates in our church, prepare an annual Ham Dinner each fall, and are involved in numerous other service projects.
United Methodist Men -(UMM)
The ministry of men in the local church is defined as a core group of men, partnering with their pastor, to invite and initiate spiritual growth opportunities for all men of the church. The focus is not inward, concentrating only on those who attend a set meeting, but outward to all men, assisting them to engage the process of spiritual growth.
The Manning United Methodist Men meet the first Saturday of the month at Deb's cafe for fellowship and to plan upcoming events. The men's group has held pancake breakfasts to raise funds to help sponsor kids who wish to go to church camp.
Our youth are very involved in various community outreaches. "Superbowl Subs" have become a yearly tradition, with the kids not only preparing and selling subs to raise money for things like camp scholarships, but they also donate subs to folks who live in local low income housing.
The youth are also very involved with Manning’s C3 organization. C3 — promoting Christ, community and celebration — was formed by volunteers from Manning’s five churches, with a goal to bring Christian artists and speakers with Christian messages within local reach.
