  • Wednesdays at 10am

    The purpose of these sessions will be to give the children an opportunity to connect with one another and to learn about the Bible! .This series will take place over 6 weeks, and we will be focusing on the Creation story found in Genesis. While the series is connected thematically, you can still participate even if you can’t come every week. Your child will have a positive experience if they come to one or six sessions.

    We will tell jokes, check in with each other, sing music with Ms. Louise, and learn about God’s Creation from Pastor Christian and Ms. Tracy. We look forward to seeing you! Contact Pastor Christian White for the zoom coordinates. christian@fairlingtonumc.org

  • The Startling Results of our healthy church survey & discussion

    The Healthy Church Team's job is to prepare for when it is safe to return to worship in person at church. Their recent survey garnered over 130 responses and their past two listening sessions have been lively. 

    Check out the results in an informative presentation. Look at the survey results to get a sense of people's varied comfort levels with the prospect of reopening the church.  Both documents point to the progress we need to make for a variety of  worship experiences here at Fairlington.
