Coming Up at Fairlington

Posted by FUMC on June 21, 2018 at 4:42pm 0 Comments

Dear Fairlington Members and Friends,

This Sunday many important things will be happening. In worship, we will focus on finding peace in the midst of storms while we light candles to represent prayers for ourselves and our world. Our three summer mission teams will be commissioned at 9:30 and 11 am, and a reception honoring newly ordained Pastor Devon will be held following each service.

A workday is being organized on Saturday, and again June 30, 8:00-11:30 to help renovate the woods near the upper parking lot.  Here’s some helpful information about this new project for our church and community.

Next week, on Tuesday and Wednesday, our church parking lots will be resurfaced and painted.  The church will be open and parking will be available with our neighbors at Fairlington Presbyterian…


Reconciling Notes

Download Here: Our 5 Year History as a Reconciling Congregation

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.
