Our vision statement ends by saying, Fairlington United Methodist Church serves God by serving others. Today, we will have the opportunity to discover what this means and then actually do what we proclaim by serving our neighbors. Right after church, everyone is invited to participate in one of six service opportunities:
~Making home repairs with Rebuilding Together Alexandria (for youth and adults)
~Doing yard work at Max’s Place (open to all ages)
~Bagging produce with Arlington Food Assistance Center (1:30-3:30pm, open to all ages)
~Preparing bags and cards for the Potato Drop (open to all ages in the Fellowship Hall)
~Painting for the Center for Alexandria’s Children (for youth and adults)
~Creating and delivering cards to the local police (open to all ages in the Fellowship Hall)
Even if you have not signed up we hope that you will join us as we serve God by serving others!

Our first year of gardening at Juliana Place has been an experiment. Where is the best sun? The best soil? It turns out that the okra, planted by the fence, is going to be the best crop. In this season of record heat and sporadic rain, I think I know why. It’s the roots. They are sturdy, deep and have multiple shoots going down.
Our spiritual roots can also go deep, and when they do, we are healthy, fruitful and strong. All of the opportunities being planned for fall here at Fairlington UMC are like the soil being prepared. Look at this wonderful list! Think about how you would like to be planted in this soil. We will be nurtured together.
