Church-Wide Study:  The Holy Spirit

We will be guided through a clear, accurate, and spiritually insightful study of the person and work of the Holy Spirit by a couple of laypersons named Don and Jackie Ragland.  Don is a practicing, full-time veterinarian. Jackie is a payroll administrator and licensed practical nurse. Their personal relationship with God, love for the Church, and a strong desire to see the people of the Church discover the power and freedom of coming fully alive in the Spirit are obvious throughout this simple, thorough and timely study.

Invite your friends, coworkers, and neighbors to be part of your group.  It’s a five-week commitment that may be one of the greatest things you have done for yourself in a long time.  We are asking for a $6.00 donation to cover the cost of the books.

Study Group schedules will be out this week and sign-ups will begin during the week.  For more information contact the office at 231.723.6219 or office@manisteeumc.org



J.O.Y. (Just Older Youth) is a group of people aged 55 and up. We meet for fellowship at noon on the second Tuesday of the month. The group enjoys a variety of activities: trying different restaurants, potlucks, concerts, museums or other suggested venues. In the past, we have visited Interlochen, Frankfort, Ludington, and Grand Rapids, car-pooling for transportation. Occasionally, the date is changed to coincide with an interesting event. Contact Phyllis Greve through our church office at 723-6219 if you'd like to participate!




Men's Breakfast

Every 4th Saturday, a group of men get together at the Bungalow Inn at 8:00 a.m. for food, fun and fellowship. A short devotional and a prayer are given as the group waits for food. Sixteen to twenty men, from both services, young men, and young-at-heart men join for this opportunity to know each other better. We talk, joke, laugh, and eat together for about an hour. George and Jim  call the list of thirty men with a reminder the day before. A warm invitation is extended to all men. No reservations are necessary. If you wish to be on the call list, contact George or Jim

Monday night Men's Group at 7 pm. Using the Upperroom Mediations to study the Word of God. Fellowship is an important aspect of the group and their goal is to keep their spiritual journey alive and growing.
