Men’s Breakfast — Back on 3rd Fridays

August 18, 2016

Third Fridays
7:00 am
Fellowship Hall

Fairmont Men,
Don’t forget, we are going to be meeting this Friday morning for breakfast at the same place and same time:  Fellowship Hall at 7:00am.
The main topic of conversation will be to coordinate our next Neighborhood Walk-through.  We should revisit ‘lessons learned’ and what we can do to make it even better than the last time.  We’ll want to pick a date, too.  We also always bring forth great ideas for what we, the Men of Fairmont, can do to enhance the life of our congregation and neighborhood in which we live.

 

 


 

Dates Set For God’s Politics, The Fall Book Study

August 18, 2016

Sunday, September 11 and Thursday, September 15 will each be the introductory session to the two month study of Jim Wallis’ book, God’s Politics–Why the Right Gets it Wrong and the Left Doesn’t Get It.  Sunday’s session will be from 9:45 AM to 10:45 AM and Thursday’s will be from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM. The sessions will be interchangeable with the same discussion leaders. If you should miss one, you can go to the other. The sessions will continue each Sunday and the following Thursday until the first week of November.
Jim Wallis’ book may be purchased on line from Cokesbury or Amazon. Two loan copies are available in the church office, and the book can be checked out at your local public library.
Plan now to participate in this unique church program.  The topic could not be more timely during this upcoming election season.  Obtaining deeper understandings of our religious, ethical, and moral beliefs should have a positive impact on improving the practices in the political system of our democracy.

Discussion Leaders for God’s Politics Study: Fairmont is blessed to have a strong team of active and committed church members to lead the study sessions and discussions of God’s Politics during September and October. The team consists of Walter Brock, team leader, Jennifer Bumgarner, Ken Dulaney, Helen Kraus, Gene Lowrimore, Amy Womble, and Pete Eberhart. coordinator. Each is a strong active member and will be a well prepared, superb discussion leader.

Camp #livedifferently a Great Success!

August 11, 2016

Camp #livedifferently ended last week! The seventeen children who participated put together…
80 lunch bags, 95 “share a blessing” bags, 18 chemo care kits for children, raised $118.26 in a half hour of selling lemonade for Wine to Water, the clean water organization that partners with Stop Hunger Now…and put together 6 refugee “welcome home” kits, made blankets,  collected shoes, sang, snacked, and more! On Sunday, the bake sale of their decorated cookies raised around $185 for Stop Hunger Now (and the leftover cookies have gone into this week’s lunch bags).
Thanks to Tamara Ladich for her leadership and to all the adult volunteers who helped with camp, helped with snacks,  shopping, set up, clean up and thanks also to all who made contributions for projects.

 

So what did they do????

They packed 80 lunch bags; 95 “share a blessing” bags*, 18 chemo care kits for children, raised $116.26 with their lemonade stand for Wine to Water, the clean water organization that partners with Stop Hunger Now…and put together 6 refugee “welcome home” kits, made blankets,  collected shoes, sang, snacked, and more!
