The purpose of our Youth Ministry is to provide the opportunity to LOVE God, LEAD others to Jesus Christ, LINK together with other Christians, LEARN ABOUT & GROW in our Christian faith, and LOOK after the needs of our community.

What we believe, and why we do it!

Our ministry is here to quench their thirst, in a way they can appreciate and understand. We do this by providing several different ways for students to get involved. We offer programs for ages 6-12; Currently online for the safety of our students and their families.

I come here because I know it’s okay for me to ask questions about God and my faith as a Christian.

Summer Mission Program

Each year for the last 18 years VUMC youth ministries have participated in a summer mission programs. Since 2008 we have traveled to Orlando, FL, Campbellsville, KY, Eubank, KY, Queens, NY, and the Osage Nation Reservation, Osage, OK, Loveland, CO, Austin, TX, and Rutland VT. For the summer of 2014 the youth stayed here in Vicksburg and served our local community, cleaning up around our church and within the village after a massive summer storm.

Summer mission projects have varied from putting on a Vacation Bible School for a poverty stricken trailer park 2 miles from the gates of Disney, to fixing the floor and plumbing of a widow in Oklahoma.
