Herndon UMC’s mission is to serve and share God’s Love in community.

Be a Neighbor

These challenging times offer us many opportunities to serve and share God’s Love with our neighbors.  If you are looking for ways to offer assistance, there are opportunities here (to the right on desktop or below on mobile) and more opportunities listed on our Serve page.  If you have another idea on how to serve or need some help choosing what’s right for you, please contact a staff member.

Neighbor Hotline
