Herndon UMC would not be able to support the many missions and ministries that it does without the generosity of our church community. Everyone is encouraged to share their time, talents and treasure with the community. Want to develop a new skill, like working on web pages or speaking in public, let us know. Opportunities abound!
Time and Talents
There are so many opportunities to serve and share God’s Love in the Herndon UMC community. Herndon UMC uses an online volunteer management system (i.e. VOMO
) to make opportunities available to anyone interested. We hope you will find one (or more) that brings you joy. Maybe you love the way the facilities at Herndon UMC are open and available to the community and want to help the Trustees make that happen; maybe you were grateful for the way Sunday fellowship allowed you to connect with members and want to help with hospitality or welcoming.
