MACC serves resident of the towns of Manchester and Bolton and is the largest private, nonprofit social services agency in the state located East of the Connecticut River. Currently, the conference consists of 36 area churches. MACC employs a dedicated staff of professionals and relies on 75-100 volunteers each week fulfill its mission. Every day, 365 days a year MACC provides needed social services to the community.


We are proud to work in partnership with our friends in Christ here in Manchester. Concordia is also a member of the ELCA and is our sister across town. We encourage you to visit their website as well. We are committed to working together to engage our community by developing joint events, worship services, and pooling our talents and resources to more effectively reach out beyond the four walls our buildings, actively doing Christ's work, and helping each person find the spiritual home that fits them best.


St. Mary's is quite literally our neighbor. We are blessed to enjoy a wonderful and productive relationship with our Episcopal brothers and sisters at St. Mary's. St. Mary's, Emanuel, and Concordia are partnering to create new and exciting ways of working together to effectively reach out to the greater community. We encourage you to visit St. Mary's online or in person!
