Our worship experience is designed with inspirational music and relevant teaching to inspire you
to live a God-centered life through engagement in the path God has planned just for you.
Are you wondering what to expect at
We provide a casual atmosphere where you are free to experience God at your own pace. Our worship experience is structured by casual dress, traditional and contemporary music, and friendly faces.
Whatever your circumstances – single, married, single again, with or without children – and no matter what your journey in life has been, you matter to us, and more importantly you matter to God.
We want your child to experience an engaging, life-changing message from God’s Word in a way that he or she can comprehend and that speaks to his or her life specifically. Our children’s ministry is from birth to 5th grade children and strives to be the best hour of your child’s week. Drop your kids off in the Fellowship Hall or Nursery before coming to worship so both you and your child can be spiritually fed.
The goal of our Student Ministry is to create an environment where teens can come to know God and learn how to succeed through the stresses of life. VUMC Student Ministry is for 6th through 12th graders. We have an active group of students who are engaged to make an impact for Christ today!
Vanceboro Church strives to make a lasting difference in your life, in our community, and in the world. We accomplish this by leading people to become fully devoted followers of Christ, which is our driving purpose that is interwoven into everything we do. Our mission to live out of faith in action!
In Your Life
As brothers and sisters in Christ, we desire to help you get to know God at a deeper level so that you may become whom He has created you to be. Despite any point you may be in your life—amongst one of your lowest turns or striding in a high moment—we want to support your next steps in your journey with Him. This path may lead you through serving, attending, giving, and growing in your church.
