Bring a chair and start your Sunday with this more casual weekly worship service outside, weather permitting, and inside if not.

10 am | In-person & Livestream Worship

  Worship with a mix of creative, and age-inclusive elements in the Herndon UMC Sanctuary.  There are worship tools, and Nursery available.  Holy Communion is offered on the first Sunday of the month. The live stream can be found here and on YouTube.

4 pm | 1st Sunday Evening Worship

Once a month on the first Sunday, worship in the Sanctuary with music, prayers, a relevant message and communion.  If you like evening worship services, please support this service with your attendance.

Rise Up: A Day of Hope

Rise Up! was launched back in the spring of 2022 as a musical way to raise mental health awareness and celebrate the ability to perform a live public concert again after two years of pandemic restrictions. May 18 will mark Herndon UMC’s third annual Rise Up! event and we are dreaming big this year–partnering with the Fairfax County Community Services Board and the National Alliance on Mental Illness to host a “Day of Hope” for our community that will include free resilience education classes and a resilience fair where people can connect with local mental health and wellness resources. The classes and resilience fair will run from 5-7 pm and the concert will be held at 7 pm.  Learn more!
