Thanks to you & Laura for being my lunch and movie pals today =) We'll have to add that one to our list to have on hand for a girls lock-in or something like that.  If you think you'll be okay with the bears and everything.  Hahaha =)  If I don't see you on Sunday, have so much fun at girl scout camp & hit me up when you're back around and not busy so you can come meet the kiddo!!

Wow, that is a busy summer... a lot of fun though, right?  Are you ready to be the Chief Diver?  I have a cool backup for you to wear if you want...

Hey Ellora- I love your page.  It is so much more interesting than mine.  I am glad that you like the site.  The more people play on it, the more fun it will be.  What are you doing this summer?

I think that's pretty normal though!!  It's hard to understand how incredibly serious it is until you see it ;)

Hey Ellora!  Now that the website is live, we're going to be using the Fairlington Youth group page to let you guys know about upcoming events and all that fun stuff.  Make sure you join it - you can find it right here:  Fairlington Youth Group

You'll see the summer calendar up there, and there are discussions on some things coming up -- VBS, and a concert that's happening in September that we need to get you registered for if you'd like to go... so be sure to check it out!!  This would also be a great place for you to start a discussion about your Water Balloon Volleyball practices if you'd like -- just start one discussion about it and people can comment within it to talk about times and all that good stuff!

Let me know if you need any help! :)

Sacrifice & Service

Posted by FUMC on October 19, 2018 at 11:44am 0 Comments

       It’s a paradox. Jumbo shrimp. Bitter sweet. Boneless ribs. Loud silence. Paradox seems to defy logic, is absurd, unusual or seems self-contradictory. But in the end it may prove to be something of value, well-founded or true. Like the concept of sacrifice.

Sacrifice is something we often avoid. It’s hard. It takes away from our own pleasure and requires us to deny ourselves. Yet it leads to life. To sacrifice is to give up something that is valuable to you in order to help another person. In the economy of our life in community, helping others turns out to be worth more than simply helping yourself. In fact, it’s what makes life together possible. Sacrifice is always hard but it gives life. A paradox. Where have you found sacrifice hard but life-giving?…

Reconciling Notes

Immigration 101: 

 Sunday, September 23, in the Fellowship Hall immediately after the 11:00AM service. Light lunch to be served.

An Overview of U.S. Immigration Law

Do you ever wonder about immigration laws?

What’s a visa, a green card, DACA?

Why immigrants don’t just apply for citizenship?

Would you like to have a better understanding of immigration rules in a non-political format?

 

Lunch will be followed by Just Neighbors presenting an easy to understand overview of the ins and outs of our country’s very complex immigration system.

 

Regardless of your political views, this presentation will focus on facts about who is eligible for the various types of legal status in the U.S. and what the various types mean. There will be time for Q&A. 

 

No RSVP necessary, just come! For more information contact Mark Elder markuselder@gmail.com.

 

 

Co-hosted by FUMC’s Reconciling Ministry Team

and the Church in Society Team.

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.
