Welcoming. Nurturing. Serving.
Fairlington United Methodist Church welcomes all to a nurturing faith community that serves God by serving others.
We invite you to worship on Sundays at 9:30 and 11:00 am. Sunday School for all ages is at 9:30. There is a Nursery available during both services and Children's Church for ages 3-7 during the 11:00 service. We have a time of coffee and conversation between the two services in our Fellowship Hall, just below the Sanctuary.
In the meantime this website can offer other help. Contact the church office or call 703.671.8557 for further assistance. Office hours are
M-F 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
When I was in sixth grade and in youth group, my youth minister at the time drove around in a pickup truck with a license plate that read MJICE. He had everyone write it down and had a contest to see who could figure out what it meant.
A few weeks later a fellow youth came in and proclaimed.
I figured it out! If you look at the letters M-J-I-C-E, the letter I is in the middle of all the letters. If you move out from the I, the next two letters are J and C. Moving out once again, the letters are M and E. Therefore, MJICE, stands for I am in Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ is in me.
My youth minister and his wife had UJWECS engraved in their wedding bands, as a reminder that We are in Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ is in us. When my husband and I got married I had the same message engraved in his wedding band. This is a constant reminder that we abide in Christ and Christ abides in us.
In this week’s Gospel reading, Jesus states, “I pray that they will be one, Father just as you are in me and I am in you. I pray that they also will be in us so that the world will believe that you sent me.” What does Jesus’ prayer mean to you? How do you remember that we are in Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ is in us?
