Adult Formation

Adult Christian Formation Opportunities

Living the Christian Life is a life-long process that requires an intentional decision to study and learn the story of God.  Faith discovery and development occurs in many different ways, and all are invited to find a way that is meaningful for you in your life. Christian formation groups for adults including classes for young adults, classes for parents, and classes for middle and older adults meet Sunday mornings at 9:30am. Throughout the year, we offer periodic, short term special adult studies, workshops, and other learning opportunities for you to choose from.

Fairlington also offers a variety of opportunities to fellowship.  We love to eat together, play together, and be together, and our staff and members consistently plan opportunities to gather with each other outside of worship, from New Member dinners, to Family Night Dinners, to picnics and potlucks, there is always some way for you to connect.

Fairlington also offers a small group is an opportunity for individuals to grow in their faith and relationship with God by spending time with others engaged in conversation.  The hope is that Christian friendship will develop and our love of God will grow.  In a small group, you spend time with others talking and hanging out!  There is no curriculum, the group will choose what it will do.

In other words, no matter what your age or life stage, there is a group here for you!
