Our Mission: Create Opportunities for People to Encounter, Love, and Serve Jesus
Vilonia United Methodist Church, established in 1884, is a vibrant congregation in Vilonia, Arkansas. Despite experiencing two tornadoes over the past few years, we continue to walk with Jesus as we work and wait for his Kingdom to come on earth as it is in heaven. In the last tornado which ripped through our community, the church building was destroyed; however the church was not. Below you will find a short video telling about our experience follow the tornado of 2014. God made beautiful things out of the dust and debris.
As a United Methodist congregation, we profess the Christian faith as contained in the Old and New Testaments. We believe that the Bible, together with tradition, reason and experience, guide us to understand our faith. We celebrate the sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion after the example of Jesus Christ.
As a result, we are revived to do God's work in the surrounding community. We hope to be a place where people encounter, love, and serve Jesus alongside us. Jesus has been faithful and gracious toward us and we want to share what we have experienced.
We welcome all persons to join us for worship, regardless of their faith background or beliefs. Through our worship we seek to give praise and thanks to God and to seek guidance as to the ways in which we, as individuals and as a community of faith, can be in service to God and to the world. We encourage all persons to discover their gifts and to use them to serve as active partners in our ministries.
Thank you for visiting our website. We do hope you join us as we Encounter, Love, and Serve the Lord!
