Welcome to Mount Vernon United Methodist Church

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 134 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.

  • Welcome, Pastor Candee!
  • Hello Mt Vernon UMC!!
    Thank you so much for your continued support of donations to From His Hands!!! It is
    appreciated!! There has been an increased need in our community for healthy meals. From His Hands now serves on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Friday evenings to the homeless living in local motels. The Summer Lunch Program has kicked off and we are so grateful to all who have donated snacks and will be baking cookies!! It is a special treat for the needy children in the motels and underprivileged neighborhoods being served this summer. There are children who do not get three meals a day, so these lunches fulfill a great need! Again, thank you all for your
    continued support!!

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.
