Worship

We're saving a seat for you on Sunday mornings

In Person Worship at 9:30am has returned!

 

FUMC offers in person worship at 9:30am with appropriate safeguards. To help prepare everyone for the in-person worship option, we have created a ‘What to Expect’ video to walk you through what worship looks like, the safety precautions, and what you need to be aware of before, during, and after worship. The church continues in person worship service at 9:30am each week.

Masks are now optional for fully-vaccinated persons. For full information on FUMC’s mask policy, please review this document. In order to have safe experience worshiping God together in person, please continue to follow other precaution requirements. (Note that registration for services is no longer required, though we do ask that you provide your name and contact info upon arrival. This information will only be used to notify you or others in the case of a reported COVID case at the church.)

Visitors are no longer required to register for in-person worship. We look forward to seeing you at our worship service.

Watch Our Sunday Morning Service Live!

 

 

Video worship will be streamed live each Sunday on YouTube, and the FUMC website by 9:30am. The completed worship video will be posted on Facebook by 10:30am and will remain available on the website for one week and in our YouTube archives indefinitely. Thank you for being a part of our worship!

Confirmation

Confirmation is an important part of our journey of faith and an important time in the life of the church for students in 7th-12th grade. It is the time when one takes ownership of their faith and decides if they are ready to make a public commitment to love God, follow Christ, participate in the life of the church, and join in God’s missional work in the word. Confirmation is about helping create a foundation for a lifetime of discipleship. Here at Fairfax UMC it is our joy to journey with each confirmand, surround them with love, and to help youth discover what it means to claim the name Christian. Learn more…

Weddings

Fairfax United Methodist Church welcomes nonmembers as well as members for their wedding at FUMC. Our wedding ceremonies are services of worship that are beautiful and dignified; with an underlying sense of joy and reverence. Before the ceremony, the bride and groom are required to complete Prepare/Enrich, a standardized marriage inventory online, meet with the officiating pastor for three pre-marital counseling sessions. For scheduling and more details, contact the wedding coordinator, Phyllis Fadely.

Memorial & Funeral Services

When the death has occurred, our pastors and staff are honored to provide the service for your loved one here at the church, at the funeral home or graveside depending on the family’s decision. Christ is our hope for eternal life and we offer this hope to the surviving family and friends that their beloved is now in God’s eternal charge. To schedule a funeral or learn more, contact Pastor David Bonney or Pastor Pamela Kipps. If you wish to plan a funeral in advance, we invite you to fill out our funeral pre-planning worksheet and send it to the church to be kept on file.
