Welcome to Mount Vernon United Methodist Church
Information for Kits for Conference
The Annual Conference will be held virtually this year on September 19. Local churches are encouraged to continue the collection of Kits for Conference. Specific collection details are underway, but will very likely include the organization of regional, or district-wide, drop-off locations. Information is posted and will be updated on the conference website at www.vaumc.org/ac2020. Another option is to send a check to the church and in the memo line write “Kits for Conference” and UMCOR will purchase the kits. Cleaning Kits: $78.00; Hygiene Kits: $14.00; School Kits: $12.00. The costs include transporting the kits. Kim will write one check for the total to the Conference.

Where All the People are Ministers of Christ
Mt. Vernon United Methodist Church has been in ministry to Jesus Christ and the greater Williamsburg community for over 132 years. We’re known as the small church with a very big heart! We offer a traditional style of worship, using the United Methodist Hymnal with organ and piano music. Our four-part choir under the direction of Mrs. Carol Kendall delivers both traditional and praise anthems.
Our vision is to seek to live and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to nurture persons of all ages and circumstances for faithful discipleship, and to transform faith into service to others.
Meet Our New Pastor, Mi Sook Ahn!
Fellow Mt. Vernon Members,
It is with a great deal of pleasure that I announce the appointment of Mi Sook Ahn as our new Pastor. Mi Sook comes to us from Fairmount U.M.C. in Richmond. This full-time assignment is official as of July 1st and will include occupancy of the parsonage. Mi Sook prefers to be addressed as Mi Sook although you may use either Pastor Mi Sook or Pastor Ahn if you feel more comfortable with either address.
We received feedback from many members that helped us to define our request for a new pastor. In particular, we asked for a full-time, experienced pastor who will work well with an older congregation. Mi Sook certainly fits that description, especially with respect to her work as a Hospice Chaplain prior to serving as Pastor to two subsequent churches. Thanks be to the Holy Spirit for guiding the Cabinet to provide a new shepherd for us.
Thanks be to God,
Al Glindemann, S/PPRC Chair

Open hearts, open minds,
From current & former members
I just wanted to thank all of your for the wonderful gifts that you sent me, as I recover from surgery. The prayer shawl is lovely—it touched my heart so! The Brunswick stew, and that terrific chicken soup have just been wonderful. I came as a stranger to your church in December, and you embraced me as a friend. You personify what it means to be “in Christ.” Again all my thanks—I will see you soon.
Why do I love Mt. Vernon? I love Mt. Vernon because Mt. Vernon embodied all that the church can be to the world! The church is where we have a sense of belonging, being connected to one another, in our common goal of knowing Christ and of living a life pleasing to Him.
