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.

24hrsSunday School Lenten Study
Just a reminder that we have started a multi-generational Lenten study by Adam Hamilton, 24 Hours That Changed the World, during this Lenten season. You can join any of the classes, and you will get the same lesson. Several classes come together to watch the video that accompanies this series. Then students return to their own classrooms for age appropriate lessons.
Come walk with Jesus on his final day. Sit beside him at the Last Supper. Pray with him in Gethsemane. Follow him to the cross. Desert Him. Deny him. Experience the Resurrection. Sunday school starts at 9:50 a.m., so stay after the first service or come early before the second service if you have never attended a class before or if itís been a while. This is a not-to-miss series!


All adults and high school students who are interested in joining Vicksburg United Methodist Church are invited to attend four orientation sessions that will be held at 9:50 a.m. beginning Sunday, March 19. Our new members will be welcomed into the congregation during the worship services on Easter Sunday, April 16. For more information, contact Pastor Buff.


District Conference
The 2017 District Conference will be held Saturday, March 11, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Westwood UMC in Kalamazoo. Register by March 6 at See the March newsletter for more information.


Every year, we join with other churches in the Vicksburg Ministry Alliance to hold a series of breakfasts on Tuesday mornings during Lent. The breakfasts begin at 6:45 and end at 7:25. A freewill donation covers the cost of the meal. Each week, a lay person from the host church will bring a devotional message. Reservations are not needed; everyone is welcome. This year, we have reduced the number of breakfasts from six to four. The locations of the Lenten breakfasts this year are as follows:

    March 28 Lakeland Reformed Church 10442 Sprinkle Rd

    April 4 St. Martinís Catholic Church 5855 East W Ave

    April 11 Chapman Memorial Church of the Nazarene 7520 East U Ave

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.
