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.

Ministry Spotlight: Holiday Market Donations

Holiday Market is a wonderful ministry our church initiated three years ago and it has found a special place in the hearts of the church and the community at Christmas! This year the Holiday Market is on December 17. Beginning November 12, the church is collecting new, unwrapped toys and gently used books for kids 0 to 17 years old, as well as gently used coats for all ages, and $20 Walmart gift cards. In addition, if you have new, unused gifts appropriate for adults, a “free” room for these items is being set up to repurpose the items you may prefer not to use yourself. You can drop off donations in the sanctuary Narthex or the church office.


FUMC also needs volunteers to help set up, run, and clean up after the event. Please consider signing up for one or more volunteer slots and blessing others in this season of blessings!



Kindergarten Registration Is Now Open!

FUMC Preschool offers an extraordinary Kindergarten experience! The class is in session five days a week from 9am to 2pm and is much smaller than the average public kindergarten. The kindergarten offers inspired high-level education and a great deal of detailed attention. Currently, the preschool has in-person openings for 5 and 6 year olds and is also accepting registration for next year for any child who is age 5 by December 31, 2021. It is a wonderful opportunity! Please call Laurie Seaton at 703-591-3177 or preschool@fairfaxumc.org to express your interest.
