“We are not the only Christians; we are Christians only.”
Manchester Christian Church is a part of the the Restoration Movement. This is a movement that calls for people to abandon denominational ties and the things that separate us from worshiping together and find a common ground in the person of Jesus Christ. We use the Bible as an inspired guide from God on the Christian life to inspire us in our love for each other. This is a call to anyone who desires to be a part of the great kingdom of God to come as you are to worship the creator of all things.
How should I dress?
We are a “come as you are” Church. If you are a “dress up for Church” person…you are welcome here. If you are a “I like to be comfortable” person…you are welcome. We are just glad to share in a fellowship that is not based on clothes, race, worship style, or anything else that would keep us from the throne of worship before the Lord Almighty.
What about our Kids?
We are a kid friendly Church, and we want to see students of all ages grow in their relationship with Christ. On Sunday during both service times we have a worship time designed just for kids K-5th grade downstairs in the studio in our “KidStreet” hall called “iKidz”. We also offer a similar setting for those little ones ages 2-pre-K which is located also in our “KidStreet” hall inside the Wii Kidz Toy Store shop.
During the week we offer programs for all High School, Middle School, and Elementary School students with specified curriculum and events for the different age groups.
What is our worship like?
We offer both Traditional and Contemporary styles of worship services to meet the needs of God’s People. We do this intentionally to enable people to worship God in precisely the way that they are most comfortable voicing their praises to the Only One who deserves them!
Our Modern service is not specifically designed to be cutting edge or flashy but instead relevant and inviting. We do this in hopes of creating an environment susceptible and open for true and honest worship of our King where authenticity is at the core of our praises lifted up. Contemporary worship for us consists of using songs of any genre to express the longing of our hearts and souls that is stylistically relevant. Worship songs are completely band-led and corporately proclaimed.
Our Traditional service is made up of those grand old hymns of our faith beautifully voiced using a Piano / Organ. We feel that there is great value in acknowledging the traditions of our faith and we realize the deep meaning and familiarity that these hymns hold in people’s hearts.
Our ultimate goal is to create equal opportunity and atmosphere where all may feel welcome and encouraged to pour their hearts out before God.
