At FUMC, Fellowship Groups gather to promote connections and community around a shared set of interest.  Most fellowship groups gather on a regular frequency.  Explore the list below to find one (or several) groups that interest you.  Let us know if there is a group you would like to try and we'll introduce you to the group leader and help you get plugged in. 

  • Building Better Moms

    Imagine...A place that meets you right where you’re at...as a mom, a woman and a friend! You’ll learn how to be better equipped as a parent through speakers and discussion. You’ll grow through a supportive network of moms who “get” it - from newborns to teens. You’ll serve not only your family but your community through outreach opportunities. For more information, contact buildingbettermoms@fumcmanhattan.com. To join please open this registration form, and find out more about Building Better Moms on the national website, buildingbettermoms.org.

  • Tuesday Geezers

    This self named group of hard working men come together once a week to help maintain the church in small and big ways.  If you can change a light bulb, check smoke detectors, move furniture or have more advanced skills you might use around the house we have a task for you.  Contact Doug Regester, Building Maintenance Supervisor, at maint@fumcmanhattan.com for more information.

  • UMW Simply Circle

    Simply Circle was formed in 2014 for young women ages 20-30. We now consist of a variety of ages under 50. We support each other through our various stages of life through fellowship, devotions, UMW news/projects and various other topics/studies. Contact Jill at sherman_jill@hotmail.com for information.


    We welcome women of all ages to our circle.  Meetings are held in the church at 9:15 AM on the third Tuesdays Sept - May (2nd Tuesday November, December and May). Programs emphasize social issues, and we often complete small mission projects for UMC sponsored agencies or local service groups.  Contact the church office for information.
