We Invest in Relationships.

 Life is Better in Community.

Whether you’re a couple looking to grow their marriage, a mom seeking encouragement, a college student looking for a place to belong, or a guy wanting to study God’s word with other guys, we have something for you!


Adult Ministries 

Here at Virginia Beach UMC we are all about helping people build real relationships, create an authentic community, and make a difference in the local area as well as our world. We want to help bring together people who have something special they want to share with others, while growing as their own person, too!

We believe God has called us into His beautiful plan for your life so why not explore what He wants from you? Find out how joining one of our awesome groups can help point towards exactly where YOU belong...


Imagine a place where you belong, where you are encouraged, where you are accepted for who you are, not what you have or what you do.


C.R.E.W. Youth Ministry is full of Biblical discussion, fellowship, games, and music. Our youth ministry is not about programs or events but connection and relationships. We desire to create a place where all youth can grow into life-long disciples of Jesus Christ by developing healthy relationships with each other, our adult leaders, and God.




Have kids? No worries, we've got you covered. VBKIDZ offers programs for kids who are 6 weeks old through 5th grade. Your children will be in a safe environment where they will learn about Jesus and have a fun time doing it.

If your kids are Kindergarten through 5th grade, then they come to worship with us on the third floor.  Kids check in starts at 9:00am for the 9:30am service. We can’t wait to come alongside you to equip and empower your whole family to know, love, and follow God.

Other Ministries to Get Connected


Care & Support

At VBUMC, we believe that caring for one another is at the core of being Christian. We try to make it easy for church families and families in the community to connect with one another and offer support through our many opportunities.


Our Senior Ministry is a vibrant, churchwide presence in which older adults are fully engaged with the ministry of God’s kingdom. Through educational opportunities and missional events, seniors’ experiences and wisdom are embraced as valuable resources.


Music is an important and beloved part of worship here at Virginia Beach United Methodist Church, and we'd love for you to be a part of it! There's a place for everyone, whether you like singing your heart out or jamming on the guitar.

The MomCo by MOPS

Here at The MomCo by MOPS International, we: raise our kids and one another, boldly elevate motherhood, embrace the unexpected and imperfect, understand our direction is more important than our speed, celebrate often and loudly, know every mom has a place with us, follow Jesus, and invite others to journey with us. 

Bicycle Transportation Ministry 

We help men and women who are gainfully employed and in need to get back on their feet by providing them with a bike. Bicycle donations come from members of Virginia Beach UMC, local bike shops, and generous donors throughout our community, which are then repaired by volunteers in our shop.

Stephen Ministry

If you are in need of care and hope, Stephen Ministers want to walk beside you. These lay congregation members are trained to provide one-to-one care to those experiencing a difficult time in life. Our Stephen Ministers share a passion for bringing Christ’s love and care to people during a time of need.
