Welcome to Fairlington

We proclaim without reservation God’s unconditional love and grace, and affirm the dignity and worth of every person as created in the image of God.  We commit to extend Christ’s gospel hospitality, creating a place of safety and spiritual sanctuary for all people.  Therefore, this community of faith welcomes into membership, participation, and leadership all persons regardless of age, race, ethnicity, gender, family structure, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, economic background, political affiliation, physical or mental ability, faith history, or life experience.  We recognize among us differences in theology and biblical interpretation, and covenant to accept, respect, and love one another along our faith journeys.  As God loves us, so let us love one another.

  • Bring Your Shopping Bags to Church!

    FUMC continues its collection of reusable bags in an effort to assist low income households because the new tax on plastic bags is one more hardship. If you have or can purchase reusable bags with sturdy handles that can safely hold about 20 pounds of groceries, please place them in the big box in the Narthex. There will be a sample bag attached to the box. For more information, contact Anne Wilson, wilsanne@gmail.com.
