What do you IMAGINE for Fairlington United Methodist Church in the coming years and decades? How will we stay relevant in a world that needs places like Fairlington more than ever?
We are so grateful for your generosity of prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness throughout the pandemic. We are excited to now ask that you IMAGINE Fairlington in the next stage of our church life.
When we look at the challenges our society faces, we believe the inclusive, Christ-centered church provides the answer. It is a church that enfolds people of all ages, races, and orientations, that seeks justice and that loves with abandon. Fairlington UMC is a part of this church and a leader among churches.
Nearly 80 years ago, the founders of Fairlington created a place to worship Christ and positively impact a community by putting faith into action. Join us in our 2023 generosity campaign – IMAGINE Fairlington – to build on that positivity at our core foundation and bolster our strengths, opportunities, and aspirations.
Fairlington is full of riches and gifts – our people, our faith, our location, our music, our inclusion-focused pre-school, our many programs and partnerships to help those in need. IMAGINE blossoming from a Fairlington with a “sanctuary, offices, and classrooms” into a Fairlington campus that is a “Center for Mission and Ministry” which empowers our mission priorities of housing, food security, creation care, and immigration.
Our faith is being activated and there are teams already at work in the church, but we need your voice, energy, vision, and generosity together in this IMAGINE Fairlington endeavor. Our 2023 generosity campaign will launch with Generosity Sundays on October 23 and 30. We ask that you prayerfully IMAGINE with us by completing the enclosed generosity card or registering your generosity dedication online.
