Galilee UMC Sunday Services: 9am Worship Livestream At Galilee, we are ordinary people given an extraordinary purpose: to know Christ and to make Him known. More info at galileeumc.org.
At Galilee, we believe that we are ordinary people called to an extraordinary purpose: to know Christ and to make Him known. We got our start in 1959, when the residents of Broad Run Farms dreamed of creating their own church. Worship began in our original building in 1965. Sunday morning services are at 9 and 11. We incorporate a variety of music into our worship and would love for you to join us. We’d especially like to see you at our Grow Hour of small groups between services. We’re more than a church. We’re also a preschool, a community center that houses recovery and support programs, a headquarters for scout groups, and a busy gym full of individual and team sports competitions and practices. Welcome to Galilee…we hope you make this your church home.

About us - Galilee Church

At Galilee, we believe that we are ordinary people called to an extraordinary purpose: to know Christ and to make Him known. We got our start in 1959, when the residents of Broad Run Farms dreamed of creating their own church. Worship began in our original building in 1965.

Currently our church is closed for in-person worship. Instead, we welcome you virtually.

Sunday morning services is livestreamed at 9am. We incorporate a variety of music into our worship and would love for you to join us online. We’d especially like to see you at our Grow Hour of small groups between services.

We’re more than a church. We’re also a preschool, a community center that houses recovery and support programs, a headquarters for scout groups, and a busy gym full of individual and team sports competitions and practices.

Welcome to Galilee…we hope you make this your church home.

Galilean Sighting! 💜 So happy to see this guy while cruising through the neighborhood! Need your car serviced while you’re quarantined at home? Just call Clive King! 🚙 #socialdiastanceselfie
My "virtual" Mother's Day. Instead of feeling lonely due to social distancing, it turned out to be a wonderful experience. It all started the day before, Saturday, when son, Ken and wife, Liz, along with grandsons, Zach and Devon, presented me with a beautiful bouquet of flowers and musical Mother's Day cards. That evening I received a call from my granddaughter, Kyla, who sent me a photo of their dining room table, all set for a Mother's Day Tea, to which I would be invited the next day in Face Time, for tea sandwiches, salads and tea cookies, with Kyla, my son, Dan, his wife, Cheryl and son Logan. I would have to wear my fancy Downton Abbey hat, and have my table set like Kyla had set theirs, with my antique dishes, tea sandwiches, etc. On Mother's Day, at noon, my table was set as directed, and I went one step further, inviting my large life-size dolls to join me at the table for the Tea on Face Time. My youngest son, Bobby, was not able to join us due to having to work that day, but called to wish me Happy Mother's Day and he loved the whole idea of the Tea. We had an old-fashioned luncheon that lasted for an hour, and all, including the dolls (pictured here) had an unexpected experience. And though this time of the Coronavirus held the promise of putting a damper on this special day, it did not spoil our Mother's Day, thanks to my caring family! Jean Goldsby (the Chapel).
Jordan, Brietta, and Tordis 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 We are not worthy of the beautiful gifts God has given you, thank you for sharing them with us this morning!

This is my hometown pastor's granddaughter singing How Great Thou Art. In times like this we need to remember how great our God is! https://www.facebook.com/107211609323846/posts/3330011417043833/?d=null&vh=e
So thankful to be able to live stream or view podcasts of worship and to be with our choir family last Wednesday. Even in this time of social distancing we were able to be in worship. Planning on joining It's a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood small group Wednesday. So blessed.
We are all His sheep and he will take care of us.💜 #havefaith #washyourhands #helpyourneighbors
With our combined efforts we will accomplish even more next year.
Something came up last minute and I did not make it to church so I decided to watch the pod cast of my daughter's church.... Galilee UMC in Sterling Va......great message and added bonus I got to see my grandbabies at children's time! ❤️
