Our rich history and tradition of faithfulness is visible in the Spirit of God alive in the people who embody the congregation today. Presently the church has an average weekly attendance of 135 people between three worship services and a membership of 169.

VUMC is a vibrant congregation that genuinely cares for each other and our community. We are committed to learning and growing in discipleship together so that others will see the love of God in and thru us. We value Jesus' message of grace and mercy, the importance of a right relationship with God and with others. And we seek to become a relevant presence in the community of Vernon for Jesus Christ.

We are a church of "Open Hearts. Open Minds. Open Doors." There is always room at the Lord's table. All are welcome.
