About Us

Where we are in the world:
Jefferson Street United Methodist Church is located in the heart of downtown Natchez, Mississippi, on the corner of Union and Jefferson Street. Just blocks from the "Mighty Mississippi" River, this church has served the "Miss-Lou" area for over 200 years. Established in 1807, Jefferson Street UMC has undergone several renovations, the latest in 2006 in which the Christian Life Center was added.
 
Who we are in the world:
The Jefferson Street community serves our neighbors and the world through many ministries. Several of these include children and youth ministries, providing needs for local people through our food pantry, and missional work throughout the nation and the globe! 
We are a people called to love and serve through being an example of Jesus Christ with "Open Hearts, Open Doors, and Open Minds."
We welcome you with a southern hospitality that is truly unique to Mississippians...come and see us!
