I love the way you are jumping in with two feet.


Next stop the Forums to get into discussions. I see you have volunteered for the Creative/Design/Content team.  I have posted the rest of your team members in a discussion in that Forum Category.  Time to get everyone on board. Do you know everyone on your team?  Do we need a discussion item for people to introduce themselves to other people on the team?

Thanks for using the Event functions for these moments of fellowship.  Just what it is there for.  And I am now coming to a picnic!  Technology and food -- a great mix.

Welcome to the new site Kathy!  Enjoy your first touring experiences.

  5. Write a letter of gratitude to a teacher, coach, old friend or mentor, or former pastor.
  6. Find a gratitude partner and share together daily or weekly.
  7. Tell someone how much they mean to you.
  8. Put a positive spin on your negative thoughts (You’re home with a sprained ankle but you get to read the book you’ve had by your chair for months.)

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.
