This digital worship experience premieres on Sunday, April 18 at 10 am. The first layer of spiritual disciplines that Foster will cover are the inward disciplines. These include meditation, prayer, fasting, and study. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus instructs his followers on how to pray and fast. These disciplines aren’t meant to be something grand or showy; instead, these are opportunities to center the core of who we are on the core of who God is. How might we integrate meditation, prayer, fasting, and study into our daily walk with Christ? This service is available here on the website, through the Herndon UMC YouTube channel, and on Herndon UMC’s Facebook page.
As always, you are encouraged to add your voice to prayers and songs and stand as you are able. There is a bulletin to help you experience worship. It includes the week’s announcements, links, ongoing prayer concerns, and the order of worship.
Say hello in the chat. The chat on YouTube opens at 9:30 am; Facebook’s chat opens when the video begins. No matter what platform you prefer. Please let us know you are worshiping with us, who is there worshiping with you, and where you are. This can also be done by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Anyone new or looking to get more connected or learn more about Herndon UMC is invited to email email@example.com or complete this online form. We would love to hear from you!

Our mission focus for the next few weeks is on students. Specifically, gifts to mission are requested to support the Herndon UMC Scholarship fund. These scholarships are one-time support and encouragement for active members of the Herndon UMC family who have recently graduated high school (including class of 2021) and pursue higher education and those who are adults returning to school. During this time we will also highlight some of Herndon UMC’s other mission efforts that support our students like backpack foods and Thank God for Tutors.
