OPEN HEARTS. OPEN MINDS. OPEN DOORS.
Vicksburg United Methodist Church, a Registered National Landmark, is a beautiful, active church located in the heart of Vicksburg and has been serving the area in the name of Christ since 1840. The building, having been preserved in the village is a statement of faith to the community and open to many groups for their use. Each beautiful and inspirational stained glass window, enjoyed by all, proclaims a message of its own. If you are searching for an enthusiastic, caring congregation, we invite you to worship with us.
Whether you're an experienced player or trying pickleball for the first time, you're invited to come and enjoy a fun way to get some exercise. While there is no minimum age limit, younger players should at least be in middle school. There is certainly no upper age limit, since many pickleball players remain competitive well into their 70's and 80's. Pickleball equipment (paddles, balls, nets) will be provided.
Weekly Pickleball at VUMC will continue on Thursday, June 30th at 6:30pm in the Family Life Center. We may occasionally play outdoors, if weather permits.
Feel free to contact Ken Cron (649-1745, VultureTBird@cs.com) if you have questions or want additional information.
We hope you can join us for pickleball.
Meet in the same picnic pavilion as last year (just to the left once you enter the park). Following the worship service, we will celebrate a church picnic together. Bring a dish to pass. Beverages and table settings will be provided. Additionally, you are invited to bring recreational equipment so that we can play some games together.
In the event of unfavorable weather, the service and picnic will be moved to inside the church building.
There is a new group meeting here at VUMC; Knit & Stitch 2gether. It meets Fridays from 10am-12pm. Bring your projects; knitting, crocheti ng, hand stitching of any kind. There will be patterns available for charitable knitting. If you have any questions, please contact Lisa Beams (649-2412).

Discipleship Fast Track Coming This Fall
Fast Track is an adaptation of the original, bestselling Disciple Bible Study: Becoming Disciples through Bible Study. It is ideal for busy people who want to fit a comprehensive Bible study into their schedule. Classes meet for a total of 24 weeks, studying the Old and New Testaments for 12 sessions each. Daily preparation is manageable, with only 3–5 chapters of the Bible to read each day. Weekly sessions last 75 minutes.
Join us, won’t you? Contact John Cleveland, 649-1405, or the Church office, 649-2343, to let us know you’re
interested. (We just eliminated the “but first” syndrome for you!)
