We will be an anchor in the community that finds great joy in inviting everyone to be disciples of Jesus Christ with us.
VUMC Who We Are
Due to the current COVID-19 Pandemic, we have been asked by the Bishop of the North Georgia Conference to completely close the church buildings for the foreseeable future in order to do our part in slowing the progression of the virus. During this time, we invite you to worship and connect with us in other ways. More information can be found on our COVID-19 Information page.
Due to the coronavirus crisis, our worship service began live streaming on our Facebook group and on our YouTube channel. We will practice "safe distancing" as a church as requested by the Bishop and the Governor of Georgia.

Message from Chris Branscomb, Senior Pastor About Online Worship
We are currently streaming our worship service on Sunday morning on both our Facebook group and our YouTube channel Sunday at 10:45 AM. We hope that you can join us at this time. Though we cannot meet together in person as the Body of Christ, I believe we can meet together in the Spirit at the same time.
The stream will have a 5-minute countdown timer at the front of it so that everyone will be able to join the stream before the service actually starts (because of this, the stream will actually start at 10:40 AM). If you want to start the stream and walk away for a bit, turn up the volume, and you will know when the service is about to start!
Again, please do not forget about giving to the church. There are many ways you can continue to give to Varnell UMC even though you are not here.

Community Groups at VUMC
God created all humans to be in community with each other. Jesus saw the need for this and the early church began in homes and communities. People need people. We cannot do life alone. Out church currently has several small groups within our church and community. From in-home groups to Bible study and prayer groups. God has placed on our heart a strong desire to see that every church attendee and visitor becomes involved in a community group.
Why join a VUMC community group?
• Fellowship caring for one another emotionally, spiritually and physically
• Ministry taking on a mission project either in the church or in the community
• Worship praying and possibly even singing together
• Discipleship studying God's word and applying it to life together
