Herndon UMC

God’s Love is Real. God’s Love is Active. God’s Love is for Everyone.


Sep 1, 2021 | Opportunities to Serve

As school returns in-person, Herndon UMC is lifting up our partnership with Herndon High School and the Herndon pyramid schools.  We are highlighting four opportunities to share God’s love with our local neighbors and to help our students return to school.


  • We Are Herndon Virtual Race –  Support from the Herndon UMC family and participants in this event have enabled Herndon UMC to give $4,500 to support our pyramid schools and the Food for Neighbors program.  These funds will go to feed and provide supplies for Herndon pyramid schools and families.
  • Thank God for Tutors –  Returning online again for the 2021-22 school year, this program offers free tutoring in math and sciences to Herndon HS students.  This year, TGFT is looking for a couple of new tutors to help on Wednesday nights.  If you are interested in learning more visit herndonumc.org/tgft or email tgft@herndonumc.org.
  • School Supplies for Herndon HS – One way we have been asked to help our neighbors across the street is by providing Amazon giftcards to the Social Workers so that they can provide supplies as needed to students in need.  Your financial donations can help make that happen throughout the school year.
  • Backpack food for Dranesville ES – Backpack foods provide a couple of meals and snacks for kids to have over the weekend.  Look for opportunities to donate foods or to help pack the backpack bags later in September.  You may also make a financial contribution and organizers will do the shopping for you.

Financial donations may be made through the link below or by check to Herndon UMC.  Please note #returningstrong or the specific mission effort on your check. 


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


The vision of Herndon UMC is to live the teachings of Jesus so that everyone may know God’s Love and grow in Spirit-filled relationships.
