Volunteers are needed for the very important task of buying donuts for the 3rd and 4th Sunday of each month.
Volunteers are also needed to make coffee, fill up hot water urn, cut donuts in half and place on platters, ice down cold drinks, place plates, napkins and donation basket on table.  At the end of Fellowship time, help is also needed to empty coffee pots and hot water dispenser, wash any dishes, and place items back into refrigerator.
Please see Donna Carlo on Sunday if you can help.

After so very long, our choir is going to start rehearsing on Thursday, September 2 at 7:30 pm. As in most choirs, we especially need tenors and basses, although of course, sopranos and altos are needed also. No choir experience needed- just  please prayerfully consider this request, and let Susan know as soon as possible.  scwgray@gmail.com. God bless you!

Please join us at 9:00 on Sunday mornings.  Please contact Ed to connect via Zoom.

Nature: Our First Way of Knowing God

Presented by Beth Norcross Join the adult Sunday School as we study Nature: Our First Way of Knowing God, a seven-session small group Bible study from the Lewis Center for Church Leadership, associated with Wesley Seminary. A summary from the publisher:

No longer can we simply ask, “What can we do to get people to come to our church?” We must also consider, “How can we go into the world to encounter those in need of the gospel?” Nature: Our First Way of Knowing God includes videos, discussion questions, and a suggested spiritual practice in nature for each week that can be done either individually or as a group.


A new boutique nursery and preschool is opening in the Fall of 2021. The experienced preschool owners are familiar with both early childhood developmental milestones and the Fairfax County Public School educational standards/curriculum. The Nest Preschool is located here at the Dranesville United Methodist Church, right off Sugarland Road. Its great location is nestled in a small neighborhood with lots of green space for children’s play and activities. Each light-filled classroom has doors leading directly out to the play area. Quality teachers will guide children’s learning through a play-based curriculum that focuses on social-emotional development. Tours are available.

Check them out on their website for more information and pricing. Call at 571-441-2540 or contact at inquiry@mynestpreschool.com with any questions.
