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: Hypothermia Shelter

Fairfax UMC is hosting the 2022 Hypothermia Shelter on February 6–12. Due to COVID concerns, only FACETS staff directly interact with the evening guests. Don’t worry; you can still share love and care for our guests in several other ways. The church needs groups or individuals to set up in the afternoons before guests arrive, to prepare evening meals, and to provide breakfast items. In addition, the program needs donated items such as clothing, snacks, and funds to purchase bus passes ($18 each) and gas cards ($20 each). Whatever the weather, let’s plan to provide a loving, warm, and safe environment for these brothers and sisters in need. You can learn more, explore volunteer opportunities, and sign up to help at this link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70A0B48A4A72FA0F85-fairfax. Contact Kyle Johnson at kjohnson@fairfaxumc.org with any questions. Thank you for your help and support!
