• The Neighbors In Need team would like to thank the UMW Morning Glory circle and all others that helped pack the food bags for Dranesville Elementary School on September 27 and October 4. About 200 bags were packed.

    Dranesville ES sends these bags home with students that otherwise may not have food for the weekend. Two breakfasts, two lunches, two dinners, two drinks and two snacks are included in each food bag.

    Herndon UMC will hold two more packing sessions to support this program nearer to the end of the school year, like late May or early June.

  • While many were celebrating the end of the school year and start to the summer, 6 adult leaders (including 4 college kids) and 14 High Schoolers from Herndon UMC ventured to Philadelphia, PA for a week of service. Besides running up and down the “Rocky” steps, they enjoyed opening their hearts to love of the Lord and the movement of the Spirit while working with the community in addressing the food insecurity issues faced by many low income families, children and seniors. Not only was it a faith filled week, it was quite enlightening to be a part of urban garden initiatives and to join hands with so people within the community that have hearts for serving.

  • This year’s Spring Missions Concert was held on Sunday, May 6 and was a huge success. The program featured all of our Herndon UMC performing groups as well as several soloists and over 20 cast members of Herndon Middle School’s production of “The Lion King, Jr,”.



    $2,268 was raised to support the Comfort Cases mission.  Worshipers attending Mission Sunday on June 17 will actually pack the Comfort Cases.

    Special thanks go out to the United Methodist Men for providing the burgers and hotdogs for the dinner!

  • On March 12th, as part of their monthly meeting, the United Methodist Women, Katie McGuire/Virginia Greear Circle assembled and delivered a hot lunch to the Reston Drop-In Center.

    The Reston Drop-In Center serves people 18 and over who have mental health issues or who are homeless. It is open Monday through Friday, 9 am to 2:30 pm. RDIC gives people a stigma-free, stress-free, safe place to be.

  • The goal of 75 health kits (including $150 for shipping and the purchase of tooth paste) has been exceeded!!  The Herndon UMW Naomi Ruth Circle would like to thank those in the congregation who participated by donating either money or ingredients for these kits which travelled to the Virginia Annual Conference in June with our pastor, Gary, and our delegate, Jon Simon.  Eventually these kits will be used by UMCOR any place in the world that is "in need".  Thanks again for your support in this ministry—the Naomi Ruth Circle.

  • On Sunday, May 20, our three handbell groups and the One Accord children’s choir performed a concert for the residents at Arbor Terrace retirement center. This annual tradition was a great way to put Gary’s sermon theme of “Go!” from that morning’s worship services into action!
