  • HS Mission Trip

    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.

  • Spring Mission Concert Raises Funds for Comfort Cases

    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!

  • Easter Egg Roll and Dinner

    Thanks to everyone who participated in and volunteered for the Easter Egg Roll.  It was a successful event pairing up with HUMC Preschool for their GIFT dinner.  All the proceeds from dinner benefited the Preschool Scholarship Fund.  We had over 50 kids and 10 adults (a.k.a. really big kids) rolling eggs, making crafts and enjoying fellowship.  Thanks also to Joyful Noise for sharing their wonderful songs.

  • Lunch for Reston Drop-In Center

    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.

  • Health Kits for Annual Conference

    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.

  • Volunteers in Mission -- Virginia Trip

    A grateful thank you to the congregation of Herndon UMC for their love, support and prayers for the 2018 Volunteers in Mission team to Virginia Beach.  The United Methodists Committee on Relief  (UMCOR) hope to finish projects at 30 homes by June to complete the Mission of Hurricane Mathew recovery.   We did demolition and then started putting things back together. '

    Three prayer shawls were presented including to the homeowners thanks to the Yarn and Thread Ministry.


  • Annual Concert at Arbor Terrace

    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!

  • Easter Music

    After eight years as Music Director here at Herndon UMC, I again find myself humbled by the talent and generosity of the musicians who so willingly share their time and talents in order to enhance all three of our Easter worship services.

    • The gifted instrumentalists Erica Hirt and Christy Sullivan shared a beautiful duet at the Saturday evening, casual service.
    • The Wesley Choir offered uplifting anthems and sang their hearts out during the "Hallelujah Chorus" at the 9am, traditional service. The Chancel Ringers lifted our spirits with their joyful ringing.  Our wonderful brass players, Greg Smith, Ken Sullivan and Bill Miller filled the Sanctuary with festivity during our Easter hymns and Jacob Reeves helped enrich the sound by bringing the timpani over from Herndon HS and playing for us.
    • The Connection Band filled Doe Hall with praise filled worship songs to lead the Resurrection celebration during the 10:30am, contemporary worship service.
