Come Worship

Please note: 
In-person worship services will continue to be on hold through the month of January. This decision was not taken lightly and was made with the health and safety of our congregation, clergy, and staff in mind. Our pastors, in connection with the Healthy Church team, continue to monitor local positivity and hospitalization rates. Please pray with us for God's church and our community going forward. 
Join us for ONLINE WORSHIP at 11:15 am

Fredericksburg United Methodist Church longs to reach people for Jesus Christ precisely where they are. Based on Christ’s call to love one another we will strive to connect safely and following both state and Methodist guidelines. Due to the size of our congregation and social distancing requirements and Virginia Conference requirements, we are currently seating only a limited number of people for in-person worship.   

As those restrictions are relaxed, we will seek to integrate new guidelines as quickly and safely as possible.
