Our Ministries

Red Valley UMC strives to be a church where all are welcome. The United Methodist Church believes in showing God's love in active and engaging ways. We are committed to supporting our community according to our principles. Red Valley's ministries listed below are some of the ways that we connect and serve our neighbors. 


Children's Ministry

At Red Valley, we believe that children are among God’s most precious gifts and we believe that God calls us to the highest standards of love and care in children’s ministry. Whether you are a new parent bringing your precious little one to the nursery for the first time or a seasoned veteran with children of all ages, we want you to have the absolute confidence that we will make every effort to provide a God-moment experience for your child.


youth ministry

Here at Red Valley, our youth ministry holds a lot of fun experiences and helps lead young adults toward a rewarding journey with Christ. Throughout the year our youth group takes several exciting trips such as going to Washington D.C to help the homeless, an Appalachia Service Project providing aid to struggling homeowners, and a Resurrection Youth Conference in Pigeon Forge Tennessee. These trips provide a wonderful opportunity for students to experience real-world situations and how they can help using their faith and fellowship all while having a lot of fun. The Red Valley Youth Ministry is a great program and helps young Christians truly connect with their faith.


young at heart ministry

Red Valley has an active Young at Heart group of seniors who meet regularly for meals and fellowship.

recycling ministry

It is so important to reduce, reuse, and recycle. We want our children’s children (and others down the line!) to be able to enjoy God’s green earth as we have. Our landfills are overflowing already!  Why add more plastic and glass bottles when you don’t have to? The items we recycle are:

  • Glass – all colors

  • Cans

  • Plastic – numbers 1 and 2

  • Paper

  • Cardboard – there is a box opposite the containers for this.


Please, think twice before throwing recyclable items in the trash!


thrift store

The Red Valley United Methodist Church Thrift Store is a wonderful opportunity for anyone to get a great deal on items such as clothing, shoes, glassware, and other household items. The thrift store is open every Saturday from 9 am to 1 pm. The goal of the thrift store is to share good items at a reasonable price to help people in need. The thrift store may also assist people in need at no cost. Anyone is welcome to the thrift store and every purchase from the community supports our program. Thrift Store proceeds benefit mission service in our local community, youth mission trips, or feeding the hungry in a global neighborhood. If you have items for donation, please call the church office at 540-721-7545.



While we focus on our hands-on missions and ministries in our neighborhood throughout the year, we lead a mission trip during the summer. In 2018, we brought our youth to North Carolina. In 2019, we went to Washington, D.C., to learn the life of the homeless and serve them. We are preparing our next mission through Appalachian Service Project, repairing a mobile home and building a relationship with the homeowner.

music school

Music is a great way to help our children (and adults) see beyond their reality and have hope and dreams. Since it’s not easy to find music instructors in our area and some children cannot afford the lesson fees, Red Valley provides piano, violin, and guitar lessons for an affordable price ($130: 13 weeks for 30 minute lessons. Limited scholarships available). Registration (Link)


USda food bank ministry

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is the department of the United States government that manages various programs related to food, agriculture, natural resources, rural development, and nutrition. Red Valley participates in this program by giving out food the second Tuesday of each month from 6 pm to 6:30 pm. There are many volunteer opportunities including packing boxes of food, bringing food out to the people who come for help, handling the paperwork, and restocking the pantry. We also have an emergency food pantry for families in emergent situations who need food right away. These families can call the church and food is provided immediately. Last December we packed 10,000 meals through the Rise Against Hunger program, an international program that helps families in need.
