Christians give.  Just as we worship, pray, read the Bible, and practice other ways to go deeper,  Christians also give.  Some have the spiritual gift of generosity and giving generously comes easily.  Others have to learn and then practice giving.  

Either way, we give.  We give our time and our talents.  And we give our financial gifts. This is a topic that is sometimes taboo. Perhaps we avoid talking about money because it feels so personal or because we struggle managing our money or because we know we need to be more generous. 

My prayer is that our giving becomes something we pray about regularly.  I also pray it becomes a topic we are comfortable talking about in our families and with others here at Fairlington.  It will be a sign we are growing in faith.

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.
