AUMC News

Coronavirus cancellations: Because of the coronavirus pandemic, all worship services, Sunday school classes and other Sunday group meetings are currently online-only. Weekday classes and groups will follow the determinations of Fairfax County public schools regarding whether or not to meet at AUMC. Currently this means in-person activities are canceled until future notice; check https://www.fcps.edu/ or contact individual group leaders for the most recent updates. Check our coronavirus response page to learn more about how we are handling this crisis.

  • Sunday services will be livestreamed on our Facebook page.
  • Until in-person activities resume, Meredith will post a weekly prerecorded video with a story/message for prek-K children to our Facebook page. A transcript will also be available for parents who prefer a hard copy. Meredith will also have “Sunday school” online. Children ages 1st grade-5th grade will be able to interact and participate via a secure zoom connection. For safety and security reasons, this link will not be posted to Facebook but rather sent directly to the parents; contact Meredith at mbond@annandale-umc.org if you have not been added to the mailing list.
