Welcome

 

Vicksburg United Methodist Church is an active congregation located in the heart of the Village since 1840. We are united by a common mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ who are equipped to join Him in His mission to transform the world.

You can experience the difference Christ makes too, regardless of your background or situation. If you are searching for an enthusiastic, caring congregation, we invite you to worship with us.

  • Worship With Us!
  • Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
  • Sunday School at 9:00 a.m.
  • May the Lord be with you!

Thanks for taking a moment to browse our website. The folks here call me "Pastor Greg" or just “Greg" because we’re all basically ordinary people who need a Savior.  We're not a bunch of “super Christians” who have it all perfectly put together. We love God and we love people. Our hearts and our minds are open to Jesus transforming our otherwise dull lives so that we can be authentically-human like Him and go serve our neighbors in His name. Together, God is leading us to be a multi-generational church of Spiritual Purpose, Presence, and Power. My wife Joanne and I -- as well as our four children — are thrilled to be welcomed in on this journey. There is a place here for you and your family as well.  We invite you to come and see!

 

In the peace of Christ,

 

Pastor Greg
