Merry Christmas!

We love celebrating Christmas here at Manchester UMC and would love to have you join us this year! As COVID-19 continues to be a primary concern for many, we are committed to providing a variety of safe and accessible ways to worship together. If you have any questions about our Christmas worship options, contact us at any time.

Christmas Eve: Family Worship, 5:00pm

This online service includes a retelling of the Christmas story by volunteers all throughout our church family. Perfect for young and old alike, you’re invited to join us on YouTube or Facebook as we celebrate Jesus’ birth this Christmas Eve!

Christmas Eve: Traditional Service, 7:30pm

This online service incorporates the familiar elements of Christmas Eve worship including carols, scripture, sermon, and special music. Tune into worship on YouTube or Facebook and get ready to sing along and welcome the newborn Christ!

Christmas Eve: Candlelit Worship, 11:00pm (Outdoors)

This service will be held outside in the church parking lot (501 Ann Arbor Street) and include scripture, prayer, communion, and candle lighting. In case of chilly weather, we’ll have a small fire going and heating stand! Plan to dress for the weather and join us for this time of worship.
