You're Part of our Church Family

    "No Suit, No Tie, No Problem!" God accepts you as you are and so do we!


 The South Vernon United Methodist Church is a small, friendly church on the south edge of Mount Vernon, where every person is welcome and valued as a child of God. Our worship service is both informal and inspirational. Our music is a mixture of both traditional hymns and contemporary gospel. There is a time for sharing with our children in the main service and a children's church time. The messages are Biblically based and the prayer time welcomes both the concerns and joys of the congregation and community. The first Sunday of each month and at special times throughout the year we share Holy communion. There are carry in lunches once a month following worship. The dress is casual and in the summer months shorts and T-shirts are welcomed. Shirts and ties are welcome but not at all necessary. Likewise for women, dresses and skirts are welcome, but not required. We are here to praise the Lord and to grow together in our love for God,  for each other, and those in our community.

Our location is at the corner of Columbus Rd. and Pittsburgh Ave. next to Columbia School.



Handicap- We are handicap accessible with a ramp that enters through our prayer garden at the rear of the church. We also have a Wheelchair to assist anyone in need.



 Our lovely prayer garden in the back of the church is a place 

  where you can sit and be with God in prayer

- We also have Central Air for comfort -
