Being right across the street from Herndon HS, Herndon UMC has developed a partnership with Herndon HS. Some of Herndon HS's teams come practice in our gym (Doe Hall), and some earn much needed funds by sponsoring a GIFT dinner. Some Herndon HS youth help coach for our Upward Basketball league and camp, and some come over on Wednesday night for tutoring. Our families have made a tradition of coming to sing along with the Herndon HS band at the Town of Herndon Christmas tree lighting each year. Herndon UMC even held a baccalaureate for the class of 2012, and has been known to send over cookies to recognize accomplishments or just show some appreciation for our neighbors across the street.
