Annandale United Methodist Church

Grace Sets Us Free to Love Our Neighbors

Our Main worship service is Sundays at 10:30 a.m.

At Annandale UMC, we emphasize the Good News of the Gospel: that we live as forgiven people who no longer must fear God’s judgment but can instead rest secure in the compassion and love of Christ.Each service includes communion.

Worship most frequently features the sermons of our head pastor, Rev. Jason Micheli, the author of A Quid without a Quo: Gospel Freedom According to Galatians, Living in Sin, and Cancer is Funny. He also hosts the Crackers & Grape Juice podcast, posts thoughts on the Tamed Cynic blog, and is a writer for Mockingbird and The Christian Century.

Our music is a mixture of contemporary and traditional, with each service featuring songs from our Praise Team (with singers, accoustic guitars, and drums) as well as our Adult Choir (a multitude of talented singers joining their voices together in classic arrangements). Hymns are sung together by the entire congregation each week. On special occasions, our bell choir or guest musicians also play.

After worship, everyone is invited for fellowship featuring light refreshments and friendly faces. 

Lenten Mission Projects 2024

We embody Christ’s love by helping those around us, and there’s no better time to recommit to this than Lent. During Lent, we collect money to help support our many missions here at Annandale UMC.
Our goal for 2024 is $60,000, spread among the following:
  • $10,000 for the Annandale Christian Community for Action, a coalition of 26 churches serving the Annandale area with free furniture, transportation, family emergency, Meals on Wheels, shelter assistance, housing repair, and child development.
  • $30,000 for the Annandale UMC Mission Center. Each week the Mission Center provides burritos and groceries to more than 400 families in need, along with monthly distributions of hygiene products, diapers, and children’s clothing. 
  • $1,500 for  the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Washington, which is operating an after school and summer program in conjunction with the Mission Center providing nutritious snacks and a place for children to go while their parents are at work.
  • $3,000 for our Children's Mission Program, which instills stewardship in our children through monthly projects that give back to those in need. 
  • $5,000 for the Hypothermia Prevention Program, as a part of which we shelter those who are homeless in Fairfax County in association with FACETS and Baileys Crossroad Shelter for two weeks each winter.
  • $3,500 for the Highland Support Project, which empowers indigenous communities by providing education addressing poverty in the lands where they live.
  • $7,000 for Rise Against Hunger, which aims to end hunger by packaging and distributing meals worldwide. The organization’s low cost, highly nutritious meals can be easily shipped and stored.
