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.

Mission Spotlight: Mobile Ministry

Through our mobile ministry, FUMC provides supplemental food to 20 families in the Fairfax City and Falls Church High School area. The church is delivering fresh groceries to food insecure households every other Saturday from June 12th to October 16th. Your help is needed to serve!  Volunteer roles include drivers, bag assemblers, and deliverers. The time commitment ranges from 1 hour to 3 hours depending on your choice of roles. This has been a crucial ministry provided by our church and is a great way to serve individually or as a family! If you’re interested, you can sign up at the link below.



Kindergarten Registration Is Now Open!
