"Offering Christ while becoming whole-hearted Christ followers"
2017 Women's Retreat at Hinton Rural Life Center March 10 - 12
VUMC Who We Are
VUMC Interview Recap
VUMC's Fitness Ministry
A Word from The Pastor:
Genesis 24:42 "I came today to the spring, and said, 'O Lord, the God of my master Abraham, if now you will only make successful the way I am going!'"
Success means different things to different people. God defines it in terms of faithfulness. Or, as Mother Theresa put it, "God does not require that we be successful only that we be faithful." Let's be faithful in 2017!
During this five-session sermon series, we will learn five principles based on the Great Commandment and the Great Commission:
1. You can’t do life alone.
2. Growing people transform.
3. Saved people serve people.
4. Found people find people.
5. Worship is a lifestyle.
In this series we will dig into God’s word. We will discover as a church how the principles of Living the Five will give you the life you long for and the relationships God wants for you!
Mason Satterfield Heads To Uganda
Dear Friends, Mason Satterfield will be setting up residence in Uganda in February. In keeping with the tradition of giving a loved one a housewarming gift ...we have established "MASON'S REGISTRY" to help him get settled in his new home.
He cannot take items with him, but he will need funds to purchase some furniture and household goods once he arrives in Uganda. We will keep collecting donations for Mason through January. Please put account #3195 on your checks.

2017 Women’s Retreat Prayer
We unlock passion for the secrets of our Father and for the kingdom here on earth.
We unlock wisdom, imagination, dreams, and visions to behold the Truth.
We lock up passivity in the church.
We lock up unbelief and confusion.
It's in the name of Christ we proclaim these things.
