This Sunday, May 19, is Reverend Pamela Kipps’s last Sunday at Fairfax UMC before she is assigned to Aldersgate United Methodist Church in the next appointment cycle. While we will miss her, we are thankful for her ministry and pastoral presence here, and our prayers and best wishes go with her to her new assignment. After the May 19 service, all are invited to a reception in the Fellowship Hall where we will thank Reverend Pamela and honor her for her excellent pastoral service to our church. Please come, bring a dish to share, and help us send off Reverend Pamela with love and gratitude.

My daughter is right! I never miss a Sunday watching my church's service, and Pamela gives outstanding sermons. She's been a marvelous pastor. We'll miss her.

We will miss Pastor Kipp. We wish her the best in her new position.

Best wishes. Aldersgate has a great community theater program too. Lovely church.

Bishop Haupert-Johnson of the Virginia Conference of the United Methodist Church has projected the appointment of Rev. Angela Schroeder to be the Associate Pastor of the Fairfax United Methodist Church, effective July 1, 2024, following the transfer of current Associate Pastor Rev. Pamela Kipps in May. 

Fairfax Church has a long history of effective and beloved Associate Pastors, and our Church Leadership Team has been diligent and insistent during this annual appointment cycle that the new Associate Pastor assigned to Fairfax Church continue to be a positive and proper fit for our congregation. Angela is already a fully ordained clergyperson in the United Methodist Church, with our Bishop now giving her full sacramental authority to officiate Baptisms and Communion. 

Angela is known to Fairfax Church already as our Children’s Director. She will continue to be present in this ministry in a supervisory relationship. Children and families will not lose their connection with Angela. Additionally, she will include preaching, worship leading, teaching, and pastoral care in her clergy responsibilities. The Church Leadership Team affirms and celebrates this appointment and thanks Bishop Haupert-Johnson for her personal attention in this particular appointment.  Angela is a gifted pastor and has the confidence of our leaders and Rev. David Bonney.  

You are invited to a reception after worship on Sunday, July 7, Angela’s first Sunday in her new role, in the Fellowship Hall to celebrate her appointment.

Where is Pamela going? This is the first I have heard she is leaving. What a loss.

Praise the Lord! Angela is such a part of this loving church already. Congratulations Angela! I look forward to your leadership.

Congratulations Angela!
