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.

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!



Play and Learn

Registration for our Part Day Preschool for three and four-year olds is open for Fall 2020. A loving atmosphere of acceptance, trust and structured freedom is our goal to help move children toward love of self, others and God. We are an outreach of Fairfax United Methodist Church, but we welcome families of any religion or ethnic background, and love to share the traditions, music and foods of all our preschool families.
