Our Sanctuary has lovely stained glass memories, each of which is dedicated to the memory of a saint (any person who lives in Christ) who was once a member of our congregation. On the first Sunday of November (All Saint's Sunday) we remember those who we have lost in the past year and celebrate the relationships we miss on a daily basis. Since we are confident in the glory of heaven, we truly believe in the communion of saints.
Did anyone take you to church when you were a child? Remember the lovely sound of all those voices ringing out in faith and love? We now use an electric piano, but we have kept as much of our sanctuary original as possible, as we wish to evoke good feelings of being loved and protected by the church of the past. Help make Manor UMC a place of grace and love for the children of God, today and tomorrow. In the trying times we are currently experiencing, we are working to assist those who are in need of food with our food pantry and our Meals with Manor, held on the last Wednesday of the month.
We are the people of the salt and the light. Even in darkenss the light shines through. As it says in John 1:1-4 "1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome[a] it." And in Matthew 5:14-16 14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven." Come and be the light in this journey of life on Earth.
