Welcome to Mount Vernon United Methodist Church

Battlefield Cross

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 135 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 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.

What our friends are saying!

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.
