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.
In times of severe weather, this website will be updated, and we will post Sunday church service cancellations on our Facebook Page, WTOP radio (103.5, 103.9, 107.7 FM), WTOP.com, TV Channels 7 and 8. Decisions will be made by 7 a.m. on Sundays.
Closures during the week by the preschools and church office follow Alexandria City Public School decisions. If the schools are opened on a two-hour delay, the Fairlington Preschool will open at 10 a.m.
Enough already. It began 480 days ago and we still have 167 days left. I’m talking about the election campaign for the president of the United States. This all might not be so bad if the discourse wasn’t so toxic. Conflict at the national political level filters down to relationships with our neighbors and family members. We don’t see much good in each other. Sadly, this mistrust and conflict also exists across our Church.
It’s hard for us to believe, but this will not last forever. One by one, people of peace, will light candles against this darkness. One by one, people of faith will pray. We will speak up for what is right and good. We will talk instead of yell. We will reason instead of rant. And we will care for our neighbor, no matter who they are. That’s the side I’m on. How about you?
