Sunday Morning Classes for Adults

Our Journey on The Way- Room 110

The Christian faith is a journey- in this class, we walk the faith together, sharing God’s presence among us, struggling with the questions of faith arising from our journey, and gaining insights from one another. 


Come As You Are!- Room 111

The challenges of family cannot be done alone- this group finds its bond in the gift of friendship and discusses the myriad ways we can share with our family and friends the love of God through who we are. 


The Studio Group- Room 109

The Holy Bible is the story of God’s redemption of humanity through Jesus Christ.  It is our main source of inspiration, direction, and connection to God and one another.  The Studio Group is at its heart a class that studies God’s Word through reflection and discussion.


Find Your Own Way- For Parents- Room 114

Parenting is a great challenge in our lives, and all of us have a vision of what we want to offer our children.  The vision for this group is to create a space for us to grow and learn as parents, and to have a space in our lives that is judgement free, confidential, and where we can have some fun together.  


Relational Small Groups


A small group is an opportunity for individuals to grow in their faith and relationship with God by spending time with others engaged in conversation.  The hope is that Christian friendship will develop and our love of God will grow. You spend time with others talking and hanging out!  There is no curriculum, the group will choose what it will do.  You might read a book together, or you might reflect on the sermon each week, or you might read scripture together.  It is up to you and your group!  Groups will start at certain times of year, but we will find a group for anybody who desires to join one.  If you would like to join a small group, contact Rev. Christian White at


Special Christian Formation Opportunities


Special one-time studies take place throughout the year on Sunday evenings, Wednesday mornings, and on other occasional days.  These include one-time workshops, theological studies, faith development programs, Bible studies, retreats, worship experiences, and other formation events to help you on your journey of faith.  For questions about current opportunities, contact Rev. Christian White at or call 703-671-8557 ext. 106.


Our Volunteers:  All programs for children and youth are led by trained, loving adults dedicated to sharing their faith with our children.  These adults also agree to uphold our Child Protection Policy.  Our Child Protection Policy is a comprehensive document outlining the directives in place for protecting our children.  All volunteers are required to have a full Background Check completed by a third party.  Fairlington UMC is also a participant in the Safe Sanctuaries program, the official child safety program of the United Methodist Church.
