We are your neighbor!
Be a part of Fairfax UMC.

Through our worship experiences, Bible studies, musical offerings, fellowship events and missions, we seek to connect not only with those gathered here on Sunday mornings but with the community beyond our building. Ultimately our mission and vision is grounded in the truth of the Gospel and the mission of The United Methodist Church to be Disciples of Jesus Christ who are lifelong learners and who influence others to serve.

Happy family in the field at sunset in the summer autumn.

Rise Up!

Rise Up is the name of our experiential worship service every Sunday at 11am. Join us for inspiring modern music, a 7-minute sermon, powerful prayer and a hands-on mission project to benefit those in need in our Fairfax community.


Come as you are and get inspired, renew your faith, and meet new friends!
