“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.
