Welcome to Vicksburg United Methodist Church


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 Wednesday, 6:30 to 9:00pm in the Family Life Center. We may occasionally play outdoors, if weather permits. Feel free to contact Ken Cron (649-1745, if you have questions or want additional information. We hope you can join us for pickleball.

Discipleship Fast Track dvd image

Fast Track is an adaptation of the original, bestselling Disciple Bible Study: Becoming Disciples through Bible Study. It is ideal for busy people who wants to fit a comprehensive Bible study into their schedule. Classes will meet on Thursdays for a total of 24 weeks beginning September 8 at 6:30 p.m. in the Fish Room.
We will be 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!)
