Update on Indoor Church Services at Mancelona UMC

 

Here is what you can expect when you arrive on Sunday:

Masks and social distancing are encouraged  for the indoor service. 

 

While we are excited about our ability to worship together once again, we must all take the precautions necessary to ensure that we are doing our part to keep one another as healthy as possible, doing all we can to reduce the risk of being exposed to COVID-19.

 

 While studies are still unsure about how singing affects the radius of potential contact, we will be foregoing congregational singing for the time being. However, we are going to try and do all that we can to ensure that there will be music of some kind offered during the service, either played over the speaker or soloists.

 

 Worship services will be limited to 30-45 minutes in length.

  

 You are welcome to come and sit in your car as an alternative option. See below for FM option.

 

 If you are still unsure or uncomfortable gathering together, no worries! We will still be offering online worship through the church Facebook page, YouTube, and the Church website. See details below.

 

 

You Tube: The service will be also be available on our own YouTube channel! This channel will allow anyone who so desires (and isn’t already on Facebook) to watch the weekly messages from home or wherever they connect to the internet.

upcoming events

Mancelona UMC in Sanctuary at 11:00 am.

 

Our June Mission Project:

 Book & Bike Bash  

Our Church is working with Communities in Schools, the Village of Mancelona, and other organizations to provide the children of Mancelona and their families with a summertime free event that includes fun and educational activities outside of the regular school schedule. Many of the families in Mancelona live beneath the poverty line, come from single-parent households, and have no church home.  We will reach out to these families by enriching their lives and showing compassion as Jesus would have done. The event will take place this summer and includes a bicycle safety program, free books, book bags, nutritious snacks, and more.

 

 

Sacred Garden

Monday, June 14, 9:30 am – 1:00 pm

Lunch will be provided. 

Planting time for Our Sacred Garden in conjunction with Au Sable Institute. We are honored to be one of several churches in the Grand Traverse Region. Remember to bring your garden gloves and a hand spade (trowel). Anyone is welcome to join us!
