From Pastor Devon: New Year's Resolution

When the ball drops to mark the beginning of a new year, many people make new or renewed commitments.  We make resolutions to live better healthier lives. There is another tradition that is practiced at Methodist Churches throughout the world; Covenant services are held on New Year’s Day. The heart of the service is focused on the Covenant Prayer, which invites people to commit themselves to God. This Sunday, we will hold a Covenant Service, which will allow you to make a new resolution this year, to live a life that is rooted in God. Throughout the year we will have opportunities for you to continue to live out this commitment at Fairlington. Happy 2017!

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.
