On Monday, May 17th the Bishop released Manito UMC to operate under Phase 3 of the Healthy Washington - Roadmap to Recovery.
How does this affect Manito UMC’s worship, gatherings and facility users?
Church office will be open Monday-Friday between 10:00am and 2:00pm. The exterior doors will remain locked, so visitors will need to call the church office to gain entrance to the building during office hours.
Sunday Morning Worship:
Manito UMC will continue to provide an online worship service each Sunday. The link to each week’s service will be sent out via email and posted on the church’s Facebook page. Members are invited to “tune in” on Sunday mornings at 10:45am as we continue to worship and celebrate together from the comfort and safety of our own homes.
Previous sermons can be found on the Manito UMC YouTube channel. To access the YouTube page click on the "ONLINE WORSHIP" link.

What does this mean for our facility user groups?
Groups of 50 or less may meet in our facility if:
The group leader has signed and returned the “MANITO UNITED METHODIST CHURCH FACILITIES USE AGREEMENT ADDENDUM,” thereby agreeing to follow the guidelines and requirements for facility use under each phase of our reopening.
The group has contacted the church office and spoken with Pam Patrick (Mon-Wed 10am-2pm, ) to confirm the details of their return.
Please note: all group members returning to the building must wear a mask or face covering while in the building and practice physical/social distancing (at least 6 feet apart from others at all times).
Manito UMC is committed to serving its community and facility users to the best of its ability. We will continue to communicate with you each time the church enters a new phase. We appreciate your patience in these unprecedented times.
