Welcome to our events page - please note that while we do our best to let folks know what is going on in the life of the church, it is not possible in a large and highly active church to list every activity, group, or meeting that is taking place. This is not an all-inclusive list, and should not be used to gauge building/space availability. For questions on building use, or to inquire about reserving space for a meeting/activity, please contact our church office directly via email or call us at 703.754.4511
Our traditional kick-off to the fall season at GUMC is our annual picnic. Neighbors, Friends, Families are all invited as we feast on great barbeque and other incredible food (vegetarian & gluten-free options are available!) and enjoy time getting to know one another. We'll have games and activities for kids and adults alike, including a moonbounce! There is no cost, the only thing we ask is that each family bring a side dish to share!
Interested in joining GUMC or in learning more about the wonderful ministries going on in and around GUMC? This is the perfect time to do that! Join us for lunch, time to meet other prospective members, and spend time getting to know our pastors, staff, and other key leaders of the church.
To RSVP, or for more information on the lunch, email our Connections Director, Samantha Allen.
