Welcome to the Rappahannock River 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.
Introducing the District Celebrations!
The district celebrations are three regional events that combine conducting district conference business, charge conference business, and a significantly greater amount of time to worship, praise, fellowship, and celebration of all God has done through our district from 2011 to 2018.
Virginia Conference Bishop Sharma D. Lewis has issued a video response to the Council of Bishop's recommendations to the 2019 General Conference.
Embrace 2018: Virginia Clergywomen's Transformational Event

Embrace 2018! is the first gathering of the Virginia clergywomen in 30 years! Join us for two days of worship, study, and community. Engage in hands on missions, show off your skills in a Talent/No Talent Show, and participate in panel discussions on change and growth within your own ministry context. But most importantly, connect with other clergywomen and claim a renewed sense of call. Be inspired. Be nourished. Be embraced.
