Our District

  • Home

Welcome to the Fredericksburg District!  

We are 74 United Methodist congregations with one uniting vision.  Our congregations, ministry settings, and people are very diverse but our passion is to Make Disciples.  

We seek to Make Disciples through four entry points: Unity, Spiritual Formation, Empowering Our Laity, and through Mission ministry in our neighborhoods, throughout our Conference, and around the world.  We value lay and clergy as equal and effective partners in ministry.  

Most importantly, we invite you to connect with one of our congregations of ministries to grow deeper in faith and to transform the world for Jesus Christ.
