There are two different meal times to make enough room for all of our guests. Meals are served at 11am and 1pm.

We will be accepting warm clothing donations at both Manchester Christian Church locations from October 25-November 15. For a list of needed warm clothing items follow the link below.

Baptism Celebration

We love celebrating lives that are being transformed by the love of Jesus! 

This is a powerful act that expresses your commitment to Him! You may wonder if you are ready to be baptized. You don’t have to know everything about God and the Bible. You simply need to understand and agree with these simple statements:

  • You believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God
  • You accept Jesus as the only Savior for sin in your life. No one else can make you pure.
  • You are ready to make Jesus the Lord of your life and start living for Him.

If you are ready to take the next step in your relationship with Jesus through baptism, connect with us and we would love to start this journey with you.

IF:Gathering 2018, we will look at one of Paul’s letters to Timothy as he reminded him of the power and responsibility of sharing the gospel. We want to give God away in the very places He’s put us, so we’re going to gather for the purpose of remembering why following God and making disciples matters. We all get tired, we all wonder if what we’re doing matters, so IF:Gathering 2018 will be the reminder--it will be the celebration. The work we’re doing to share the gospel on the earth is worth it and God DOES move through the little things that nobody sees. Join us.
