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.
