Sunday mornings and bad weather
Rev. Bonney plans to be at church on Sunday mornings to officiate at worship, even in bad weather. The close location of the parsonage makes this possible. The format and order of worship will depend on staff and volunteers available; however, people and groups (Sunday School, musical groups, etc.) need to make their own assessment about traveling to church during bad weather. “If you feel in doubt, don’t go out.”
Just a reminder of our weather related closing for events other than our worship schedule—Fairfax Church follows Fairfax County Schools decision when day and evening events are cancelled in schools, all activities at church are cancelled.
Please check our website and phone system for announcements of changes.
We seek to live into our mission by carrying out a vision of who we are, a community that loves God, builds disciples, connects believers, and serves neighbors.
Through our worship experiences, bible studies, musical offerings, fellowship events and missions, we seek to connect not only with those gathered here on Sunday mornings but with the community beyond our building. Ultimately we hope our mission and vision is grounded in the truth of the Gospel and the mission of the United Methodist Church, which is…
“to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.”
A Listening Session is planned regarding the tenuous housing situation faced by our neighbors and many of our ESL students at Waples Mobile-Home Park. This Listening Session is on Sunday, May 15 from 10:30–11:15am in the Multi-Purpose Room. Waples Park residents will be here to explain their situation. Recent changes by management in residential requirements are forcing families to pay increased land rental fees for their trailers, which they own, or to sell their homes, move their families and search for difficult-to-find low income housing. FUMC’s Listening Session is one of several being held in conjunction with efforts by VOICE (Virginians Organized for Interfaith Community Engagement) to support the residents and work to change the policy. For more information, contact Judy Fisher, 703-273-1324 or Judy Blanchard, 703-591-1587.
Come and see all that God is doing at Fairfax UMC!
