Congregational Care

I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.

Stephen Ministry

There are times when each of us needs the care of another person. Stephen Ministry is a program that equips lay persons to provide distinctively Christian one-to-one care to those who are experiencing all kinds of life needs and circumstances, both in our congregation, and in our community. Upon completion of the training program, our Stephen Ministers work together with our pastors to provide emotional and spiritual support to individuals going through difficult times. If you are interested in being a Stephen Minister or are in need of care, contact Daryl Witherspoon.

Women in Prayer

On the second Thursday of every month from 12-1:00 pm, women of Fairfax UMC gather for conversation and laughter, and to pray over their families, church, community, and world. If you would like to be part of this special group, contact Leslie Carter for more information. The group meets monthly on Zoom and welcomes women of all ages, and with all types of life experiences.

Sanctuary Helpers

One way we get ready for worship on Sunday is making sure the Sanctuary is ready. If you have free time during the week to stock the pews, pick up any loose papers and straighten the hymnals, this is the job for you! Contact Pastor Pamela Kipps to be placed on the schedule.
