THANKSGIVING SERVICE: Sunday November 22, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. at the Church
ADVENT: Begins on Sunday November 29, 2020
From the Bishop: Thanks for Your Perseverance!
“These are certainly challenging times – and there is also a great deal of positive news for our church. Through faith, flexibility, and hard work we are returning to in-person worship in a safe and responsible manner.
Virginia is on track to enter Phase Three of Governor Northam’s reopening plan for Wednesday, July 1, 2020, as the number of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths continue to decline in the Commonwealth. The Conference has been carefully monitoring events at the state level and the transition to Phase Three by Governor Northam was expected. It does not impact our return to worship plans.
Our churches continue the return to in-person under the Stage 2 criteria that went into effect for the Conference on June 21, 2020. The Conference will remain in our Stage 2 for the foreseeable future as we are being rigorous about the safety of our members and guests. Face coverings and social distancing are essential at all in-person gatherings.” The Healthy Church Team is meeting regularly to re-evaluate the status of in-person worship for Manor UMC.

Youth Can Help Church Members who are not well or do not want to venture out. Here is what you need to do:
We are continuing with in person worship. We do encourage you to register each week if you plan to attend. The church council has decided in light of the continuing virus that it is in the best interest of our membership to continue to cancel all other activities at MMUMC, with the exception of the in person worship on Sunday mornings at 11:00.
We will keep you updated by email, calls and on the website mmumc.org.
We plan to keep the church office open if you have any questions or concerns or needs. The number is (540) 740-8959. Email at email@example.com
Keep our country and world in your prayers.
Stay safe by lots of hand washing and not touching your face. Here’s a great link to what we can also do and to keep updated: Click Here
Things seem pretty tough and scary, and perhaps they will continue to do so for a time. But we lift our eyes to the One who oversees all things and who has always provided. God will be there for us and we will be there for one another.
