Missions 2020

Be a part of what we love to do

We Need Your Help

At Fairfax UMC, we have various missions and ministry opportunities to serve both locally and globally. It is our belief that by serving, we are sharing God’s love and creating disciples to transform the world. Throughout the year, there are ministries that give back to the community through fresh grocery delivery, hot meals, English classes and emergency assistance. All ages are encouraged to participate.

School Supplies

Regardless of what this school year looks like, virtual or in person, students need school supplies. FUMC is sponsoring 49 school supplies kits for Providence Elementary students. Your $25 gift sponsors a complete kit for a child. If you would like to sponsor a student, please make an online donation or bring your clearly marked donation to the church office. Thank you!

Mobile Ministry

Volunteers deliver fresh groceries every other Saturday from May 30 to September 5. Delivery drivers, farmer’s market pick up, and bag assemblers are needed (see details).

United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), is dedicated to alleviating human suffering around the globe. Groups and individuals (all ages) are needed to plan, assemble, and distribute items such as backpacks, hygiene kits, and flood buckets. To volunteer, please contact Christie Johnson.

Mission to Honduras

Our mission teams have built dormitory and teaching space, practiced English with teachers and students through music and crafts, and visited local homes and farms. If you feel a calling to experience a short-term mission trip to Honduras or just want to know more, please contact Pastor David Bonney.

Hypothermia Sheltering

Winter is a particularly challenging season for the homeless community and the shelter we offer provides a brief respite that saves lives. Volunteers prepare meals, clean, secure the area and provide overnight shelter for our guests. To help support this vulnerable community, please email Brian Cute.
