Event Description

Ash Wednesday is the first day in the forty day period (not including Sundays) Christians designate as Lent. We apply ashes to symbolize that we are “flesh”. We are mortal. We are made of dust and to dust we return are words spoken over us as the ashes are applied to our forehead in the sign of the cross.

Intergenerational Ash Wednesday Service - at 6:30pm in the Sanctuary. We will mark the beginning of lent with a thirty-minute service, which will include a time to come forward to receive ashes on your hand or forehead in the sign of the cross. This service is designed to be welcoming and accessible to all ages, especially children.

We celebrate Fairlington's 5-year anniversary of becoming a Reconciling Congregation, intentionally welcoming all people as beloved children of God.

Our celebratory theme, “Love in All Colors,” reflects the breadth and diversity of God’s human creation as proclaimed in our church’s welcoming statement.

Check out our audio for personal testimonies from FUMC members. They share how being part of a reconciling congregation has personally affected them and shaped their faith journey.
