OUR MINISTRIES

Bible Study

Being true to the word of God requires regular study. Members and non-members are welcome to join in the Wednesday Bible Study designed to bring believers closer to God. The group commits to a weekly meeting. In this time they work together to develop a deeper understanding of the Bible and an appreciation of each other’s perspectives and insights on the Bible and Christianity.



The Board of Trustees

The Trustees oversee, maintain and supervise all church property. They are also responsible in conjunction with the Pastor for all use of the church buildings and grounds. We work together with our Pastor and offer him support and encouragement.



Caring Ministry

Caring for and witnessing to others is one of our most important duties as Christians. The Caring Ministry provides ongoing contact through visits, telephone calls, and cards to sick and shut-in, and mature Mt. Vernon church members. By reaching out to others we reach out to God.



Communication

The purpose of the Communication Ministry is to inform and educate members and non-members alike about the various events and services taking place at the church. We do this by publishing a monthly newsletter the Roving Eye, maintaining our social media presence by using both Facebook and Twitter and by monitoring and updating our website.

The Hospitality and Greeters Ministry provides friendly smiles and warm welcomes to members and visitors from the parking lot to the sanctuary.  Greeters, ushers and parking attendants are part of this ministry.

Vernon UMC.  To extend to each visitor and member a friendly greeting so they will be in the right frame of mind to receive the message from the Pastor.  To be in attendance at all functions of the church and to support our Pastor at all time.



The Music Ministry is a vital part of Worship (Witness) Ministries in the church:

Our goal is to share God’s word, usher in His presence and connect the congregation, the pastor, and ourselves with God on a deeper spiritual level through the gift of song.

We strive:

To enhance, encourage and promote the worship experience

To support the various and diverse ministries associated with the church

To preserve the traditional hymns, gospel and spirituals of the church, as well as utilize the contemporary songs of praise in order to minister to all age groups.

To promote and encourage growth in the music department by encouraging those individuals and groups within the church and community to share their talents.

To provide meaningful, scripture based musical presentations for all worship services in the church and throughout the community.


The mission of the Mt. Vernon Praise Dance Ministry is to minister to the body of Christ the heart of God, through movement and creative expressions of praise, worship, and prayer.
