MissionCast – Making Apple Butter – Manchester UMC
(Click on the picture to view the MissionCast)


For over 50 years the Manchester United Methodist Congregation has been making apple butter as a fundraiser to support outreach mission.  Of course there is also the yummy apple butter that is in demand every year as well.  This tradition has been kept alive as the congregation has changed from a small rural church to one of the Missouri Conference’s largest urban congregations.  MissionCast was on hand to bring you this stirring story.

If your congregation has a mission story that you can share in a 1 min to 2 1/2 minute video please send it to us.  If you have questions contact Max Marble at marble@umocm.com or 573-474-7155

The video and the audio for this MissionCast were captured on the tiny Canon PowerShot digital camera pictured here.  It is available for around $130.  We wanted to capture all of the material for this MissionCast on this camera to demonstrate just how far digital cameras have come and to encourage you to capture and share the mission events of your congregation.  There are members in every congregation no matter how big or small who have this kind of camera or much better ones in their possession already.
