Welcome to Fairhaven United Methodist Church

Located in Gaithersburg, Maryland, Fairhaven is a very diverse small church where many cultural traditions blend to offer a unique worship experience. We are dedicated to sharing the love of God with everyone in our community. Fairhaven is a friendly and caring UMC church family where diversity is nurtured by faith.

We work and grow together as partners in ministry, sharing the love of God by encouraging spiritual growth, providing a rich worship experience, welcoming all of God’s children into our fellowship, and serving the needs of our community.

Please join us at our Sunday service: 10:30 am Service, 11:30 am Coffee Hour. In addition, we hold special services at times such as Christmas and Holy Week, and there is a healing service four times a year.

— Reverend Esther M. Holimon

“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female: for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”
