What's Coming Up

  • The Christian vocation of marriage is not an easy one. And yet some of us have been called into it (then back out of it), and some of us have received this calling multiple times. Using Pastor Jason Micheli’s gripplingly transparent book we will explore together how messy this thing called marriage can be. Luckily, God is with us in the mess and ready to help us find our way through. For more info, contact christian@fairlingtonumc.org.

  • Welcome Back to fall  

    classes are from 10:30-11:45am

    All adults are invited to join our Bible Study. Together, we will spend time in discovery of Jesus’ parables. Jesus taught primarily through parables, inviting his listeners to break away from well-worn thinking to see something different. We will study a new set of parables of Jesus using techniques that invite us to discover something new from familiar passages.
