Webster Springs Mission Trip
October 11-19

SIGN UP BY: August 10, 2021

Despite the pandemic, Providence continues to be the church and make a difference!

As we strive to eradicate systemic poverty, we have made a commitment to supporting our friends in Webster County, West Virginia

The need in Webster County is great.  The pandemic has badly affected the county’s already depressed economy.  In addition to the kinds of effects we saw here in Fairfax, the absence of tourists seeking white water or the hundreds of mission team volunteers who patronize their businesses for three-quarters of the year means that businesses, and those who work for them, are struggling.  Your help is needed more than ever.

This year’s mission trip to Webster Springs, WV will be October 11-19.

This is a great opportunity to be God’s hand at work in the world and to be forever changed by the experience of living and serving among people whose lives are very different from ours! 

If you would like to participate in the trip, please email Kate Zander at by August 10, 2021.

Creation Celebration 2021

On Earth Day 2021 we shared paintings, photographs and other artworks that remind us of God’s redemptive power. We asked ourselves how God’s Creation has been saving us this past year. We found that God restores us, invigorates us, inspires us, reconnects us to Creation and to each other.

Please visit our Creation Celebration 2021 Photo Gallery in celebration of Earth Day, 2021.  —Earth Care Team


Our sister congregation of Granjas del Desierto in Juarez, Mexico, has a new place to gather — Iglesia Providencia. The Rev. Mary Rodgers and a member of our Mission Committee, Joe Moss, traveled to this remote area of Juarez at Easter 2019 to celebrate the ribbon-cutting ceremony with old and new friends. Through generous donations from our congregation, this multipurpose building is giving our brother in Christ, Juan Pablo Gutierrez, and his congregation an indoor space in which to worship; to serve as a center for their social gatherings; and to provide a space to hold classes to teach people in Granjas a trade.


FIRST SUNDAYS We welcome older children to sit with their families in worship on First Sundays. Younger children are invited to Godly Play.

COMMUNION CARE SUNDAY  Help us celebrate Communion on the first Sunday of the month by bringing in non-perishable food for our Food Pantry. Let us remember to feed others as we are fed.

DEADLINES  Items for the weekly worship bulletin are due at noon on Wednesdays; exceptions will be noted in the bulletin. Please send your items to Communications Coordinator, Kathy Knorr.
