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.
