Where to Find Info

In addition to here on the website, Herndon UMC tries to communicate through multiple media and platforms to help keep everyone up to date on what is going on.  You can find the latest information in weekly emails, announcements in the worship bulletins, Facebook posts, monthly newsletters (sent electronically), as well as on the electronic bulletin boards and the connection corners in the church building.  Calendar information is available here on the website, in the worship bulletins and posted around the church.

The square kiosk near the Fellowship Hall also has some community information.

On Facebook there is a Herndon UMC page and a number of both open and closed Herndon UMC groups.  The groups include Herndon UMC Community (which allows outside events to be shared with our church family), Missions, Youth, KIDS, United Methodist Women, etc. 

Welcome!  We hope you will spend time with us in worship, in fellowship, playing music or basketball, or in a study or small group.  However you spend time with us, we hope it is an experience that engages your heart, mind, soul, and imagination.  You can learn more about the opportunities here on the website or by asking around at Herndon UMC.  Before and after worship services are great times to ask questions.  If members don't know the answers, they probably can introduce you to someone who will.

Herndon UMC has a wonderful building that provides an inviting place for people to gather. You will see people from throughout the community (who may be alumni from HUMC Preschool) coming through our doors again and again for Vacation Bible School, UPWARD Basketball, musical concerts and GIFT Dinners. We seek to strengthen our relationships with God, with our community, and with each other.  We welcome everyone, and hope that you find a sense of belonging here.

Herndon UMC also has a long legacy of involvement in our community. You will meet members of our church family in the schools, serving as Scout leaders, coaching local sports, and on the bike trails. You will find them volunteering at The Closet and with LINK, and rebuilding homes through our Ezra Project. You will also find our members reaching out and making connections abroad in places like North Carolina, Haiti, and Costa Rica. There are so many opportunities, we hope that you find a connection that helps you find a deepening sense of meaning, purpose, and identity.

We know that your time is precious, and you have a lot of choices in how to spend your time. We are here to support one another and you. We are committed to offering groups and lessons to coach and equip for modern day-to-day life. 

If you would like to make Herndon UMC your church home, please talk with the pastor.  He can make arrangements to receive you into full membership by profession of faith or by membership transfer.  If you would like to retain membership in your home church, he can arrange to receive you as a Associate or Affiliate member.

We are so glad you are here! 

Have you ever wished that Herndon UMC had a t-shirt to wear when we were out in the community together or working on a big project together? 

In preparation for the upcoming tailgate for our Fall kickoff and Herndon HS's first home football game, we have ordered 100 shirts of various sizes.  They are for sale for just $10 per shirt.  The shirts are in and you can pick up one just in time for the tailgate.

If you really want a size or style that we don't have, complete the form linked here and we will order them when we have enough to place the order.


GIFT stands for "Growing in Fellowship Together", and GIFT Dinners are an opportunity for our community to come together in Fellowship for dinner and to support a great cause.  The causes are always local.  It could be a church mission or ministry, Boy or Girl Scouts, a Herndon HS team trying to raise needed funds, or for a cause like Best Buddies or the American Cancer Society.

Suggested donations are $5 per person or $15 per family, but more is always welcome.

We hope you can join us for dinner on Wednesdays at 6 pm starting September 11.
