Welcome to our group!  All men who attend Fairlington are invited to be a part of the Methodist Men.  FUMM strives to declare the centrality of Christ in every man's life, to promote the spiritual growth of men through effective discipleship, and to model the servant leadership of Christ in our daily lives.

We resolve to make the FUMM activities varied and focused on making a positive impact on our Church and local community.  Please look for the event details on the home page of this website.  All men are welcome to participate and help support these events.  Whether you come to all or can only make it to one event, your participation is much appreciated!
