Our Welcome Statement:
“We at Fairmont United Methodist Church welcome with love and hospitality all people into the full life and ministry of our congregation. In our faith journey we strive to live in God’s grace and to follow Jesus’ teachings. We celebrate the diversity of God’s creation and open our hearts and arms to everyone without regard to gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, race, age, social/economic status, abilities, politics, education, or faith history.”
Fairmont is approaching our 1st year anniversary of becoming a member of Reconciling Ministries Network (which means we explicitly welcome LGBTQI folks). In honor of the anniversary we will be screening “An Act of Love,” a movie about Rev. Frank Schaefer, who was put on trial in the United Methodist Church for having performed a same sex marriage for his son. (Read more under “An Act of Love.”)

The idea for a summer day camp is born out of “who we are” as a church. We are very mission oriented, and so we, as a church, are mission driven. From food drives for the hungry to CROP walk and NAMI walk and our Fairmont Mission Work Team, we are truly defined by our actions. With some of these activities, we are limited to what we can offer the younger members of our church. Here is the opportunity created by your Children’s Council to offer them an opportunity to learn and work on missions.
Camp #livedifferently at Fairmont United Methodist Church is offering children a hands-on experience to make a difference. This camp will provide children with practical ways to make a difference in their lives and the lives of others and carry this on to their home, school, community, and the world. With their developing compassionate hearts, they will become the hands and feet of Christ by sharing the love of God.
This camp is based on the Bible verse from Matthew 25:35…”For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.” Each day will offer missional events that include age appropriate learning and projects about hunger, clean water, welcoming and helping our neighbors.
This camp is open to children from 3 years old* through 5th grade.
*Child must be potty trained.
Dates: August 1 – 5, 2016
Time: 9am – 12noon
Cost**: $50.00 May 1 or later
