Where is Pastor Manor? How do I get ahold of him?…

Typically you will find me in the church building from 9:00 – 12:00, Monday – Thursday mornings. I strive to be available for anyone who drops in on those days, during those times.

You can always get ahold of me by calling, texting, or emailing me at 860-491-0086 or by email at pastor.manor@gmail.com. On my Family Day, I typically do not check my email, so for immediate pastoral care needs on that day, please call or text.

I pray you know that “my door is always open”. Whether you drop in or make an appointment, it gives me great joy to talk over a cup of coffee – to share in your challenges and to rejoice in your blessings. In Christ, Pastor Manor

A Staffed Nursery Room…is available during the 10:45 am worship service. While children are always welcome in worship, this option is available for infants and toddlers to be cared for during the sermon portion of the service only, if parents so desire. Feel free to take your infant or toddler to the Early Childhood Room downstairs, any time after the Children’s Message. Please pick them up following the Prayers of the Church. Volunteers are needed to serve in the nursery. You could do this if you’ve already attended one of the earlier services on a Sunday, or if you’re in attendance at the 10:45 am service. If you are considering using this staffed nursery option, please also consider being a part of the care rotation. Please let an elder or Pastor Manor know if you are willing to serve on a rotating schedule.
