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.

"While they were there, the time came for Mary to have her baby. She gave birth to her firstborn child, a son, wrapped him snugly, and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.” – Luke 2: 6

 

Why YOU should come to VUMC for worship during Advent and Christmas!

 

This year (2018) marks the 200th anniversary of the debut of “Silent Night, Holy Night.” This hymn has become the best-loved worship moment of many Christians – even those who only come to church once a year. Something mystical occurs as we light our candles and sing the hope of “all is calm, all is bright” – peace and light for the world. Our worship series will celebrate the carol’s message over the entire season of Advent and Christmas, highlighting a call for our lives that can guide us all year long.

Our Advent worship schedule:

 

Advent Week #1 (Dec. 2, 10:30 am): "Sleep in Peace" – PEACE

 

Advent Week #2 (Dec. 9, 10:30 am): "Glories Stream" – JOY

 

Advent Week #3 (Dec. 16, 10:30 am : "Redeeming Grace" (Choir cantata!) – LOVE

 

Advent Week #4 (Dec. 23, 10:30 am): "Let us Sing" – HOPE

Christmas Eve (Dec. 24, 11 pm): Festival of Lessons and Carols

All are invited!

 

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.

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
