AA: Speakers Meetings
Sundays, 8:30 p.m.
in the name of Jesus Christ!
At Mount Vernon, we bring our mission alive every Sunday in our music-filled worship, with a liturgy that is fresh and contemporary yet dignified in its practice.
Through “Godly Play” on Sunday mornings, our children experience the stories of scripture in ways that stimulate all of their five senses and bring them closer to the Spirit of Christ. In four adult Sunday school classes, we look deeper into Holy Scripture and into the theologies of our day.
Handbell choirs and vocal choirs give everyone a chance to express their faith through music. In our youth groups, young people learn about Christ and how to put their faith into action through mission projects and in retreat settings. They participate in worship services and every aspect of life at Mount Vernon church.
You are invited to share your faith journey with us. For 131 years, Mount Vernon has sought to bring Christ’s kingdom of love, peace, forgiveness, and justice to a reality for our members and for our community.
Come and take a life-long walk with us
into God’s world.

CHURCH COUNCIL meets,
The United Methodist Council of Bishops has condemned President Trump’s reported remarks about immigrants
from Haiti and Africa. “We will not stand by and allow our brothers and sisters to be maligned
in such a crude manner. We call on all United Methodists, all people of faith, and the
political leadership of the United States to speak up and speak against such demeaning and
racist comments,” Bishop Bruce R. Ough, the council's president, said on behalf of the bishops.
"As United Methodists, we cherish our brothers and sisters from all parts of the world and we believe that God loves all creation regardless of where they live or where they come from."
OPEN HEARTS. OPEN MINDS. OPEN DOORS.
-- Bishop Bruce R. Ough on President Trump's remarks about immigrants.
