Event Description

The Christmas season is filled with joy and anticipation, yet this sometimes does not resonate in our own experiences. If you are looking for comfort, wholeness, and renewal this Advent season, join us for a Service of Hope and Healing at 9:30am on December 10th. This contemplative service of prayer and music will offer a time to light candles, a sign of hope and light in the darkness, as well as to be anointed with oil, a sign of healing. Questions? Contact Pastor Devon, devon@fairlingtonumc.org.
