What's Coming Up

Celebrating Connections!  Annual Stewardship Campaign  &  Pledge Card Drive

This year’s stewardship theme, Celebrating Connections: 75 Years of Fairlington Community is an important recognition that we can rejoice in our connections as a congregation when we are physically together or socially distancing. Completing a pledge card, either a paper card or e-pledge on-line, demonstrates your annual giving commitment to our church.

Pledging enables us to more accurately budget and plan for missions’ programs, ensure our staff and clergy are paid to minister to those in need and help us in our spiritual growth, support programs and services for our community, and address building maintenance and operations. The stewardship letter, a link to the e-pledge system and other information is available by clicking here.

  • When Life is frightening we need to know our lives are on solid footing. . .

    This coming fall and winter Fairlington United Methodist Church is offering (on zoom) a free, 10-session in-depth look at the foundations of the Christian faith.

    We’ll cover such topics as the nature of the Bible and how to find hope and a sense of security from its pages. We’ll discuss the nature of grace and what that means to us every day. In addition we’ll work toward a greater understanding of God’s forgiveness and the social nature of our faith.

    Doubts and questions are welcome and expected.

  • Reclaim Our Vote!

    Join Beth El Hebrew Congregation's Phone Bank

    and Call Voters.

    Beth El Hebrew Congregation has invited us to join their Reclaim Our Vote Phone Bank Team reaching out to voters who are disproportionately impacted by stringent voting laws. Voter disenfranchisement has dramatically increased in Virginia (and a number of other states) in recent years, particularly among communities of color. To ensure that everyone who is legally eligible to vote actually has the opportunity to do so, Beth El has partnered with the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, the Center for Common Ground (Reclaim Our Vote), and the Poor People's Campaign to participate in non-partisan phone banks designed to ensure that people who have been deactivated in the voter rolls are aware that they may need to re-register for their votes to be counted.

     

    All you need is a phone and a computer/tablet. Beth El offers training at each session. Beth El conducts these sessions via Zoom because they have found it increases motivation and a sense of community. For more information about participating (there are numerous one-hour sessions throughout October), please email Gerry Hebert at ghebert1949@gmail.com


  • Kids club

    10am sunday

    During Kids Club, we talk and hang out, sing a little bit, learn a Bible story, and check in to see how we are doing.  Our program this fall, Tell Me The Stories of Jesus, will be a sharing time about some of Jesus’ parables.  We look forward to seeing you there, and remember:

      We hope to see you soon!
