AUMC Mission center

 The AUMC Mission Center, located at 7901 Heritage Drive, provides AUMC members with a variety of mission and outreach opportunities. The Mission Center is the former Immanuel UMC, which merged with AUMC in 2012. Over the years, we have developed a food ministry program and more recently started a tutoring program. Activities at the Mission Center are listed below.

Update on AUMC Mission Center Renewal Project
(Updated June 2017)

“Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long.” - Psalm 25:5

In matters involving construction and county zoning, it does seem that God tries our patience! After many meetings with Fairfax County and much consulting with engineers, plans for the Mission Center Renewal Project are proceeding…but slowly.

Our original plan was to create office space in the sanctuary to accommodate Just Neighbors. However, rezoning the building for commercial use will take a year or longer, and it will require some improvements to our property. In the meantime, Just Neighbors has had to find space elsewhere since the building it currently occupies is being redeveloped and all tenants must move out by the end of June.

Given this change, we are now reevaluating our renovation plans to see what is still appropriate and should continue. Regardless of our decision, we now know that in order to meet the county’s commercial zoning requirements, AUMC will need to have a parking lot at the Mission Center and provide a storm water drainage plan.

At the same time, a project to build new townhouses next to the Mission Center is moving forward. As part of that project, the county is requiring that the developer provide a community center. In discussions with the county and the developer, it appears that one option is to allow our Mission Center to serve as the community center. If that were the case, some funds may be available from the developer to help pay for a parking lot and grading for storm water drainage.

In addition, the county has suggested that it may be able to help AUMC identify nonprofit groups looking for space to rent.

The Trustees and others who have been working on the Mission Center Renewal Project are weighing options and prayerfully considering the next steps forward. As new information develops, we will keep you informed.
