We will again take a load of toys and gifts down to the Robeson County Church and Community Center to help families have a brighter Christmas down there. Please do not wrap gifts and bring them to the church library by December 11.
Suggested items: dolls, balls, sports equipment of all kinds, jewelry making kits & other craft-type kits, toy cars, bicycles, tricycles, Big Wheels, action figures, board games, electronic games, and other toys.
Remember that DECEMBER 11 is the deadline to bring toys to the church library.
OR, if you are busy and want to take care of it right now, you can just click on the link below to the Fairmont UMC Robeson County Christmas Wishlist.
When you ship from the wishlist, the items will be shipped automatically to Susie Mallard Barnes. She has graciously offered her safe porch to gather the items.
This year's CROP Walk was dedicated in memory of John Lewis, who was the DJ for the triangle area CROP Walk for many years.
Fairmont and Raleigh Wesley Foundation both had teams walking. AND...we met Henry Jarrett's challenge! If we make our $1500 goal he will wear a Hawaiian shirt and a dinosaur hat to church. Donations are still coming in. We'll announce the total on November 20 when Henry wears the hat!
Fairmont Nursery Has Reopened!
Fairmont Nursery is Open! To provide hospitality for families and our youngest worshipers, our nursery is open for infants to age 5 during Sunday School and worship.
Reminder! Each Sunday, until we hire a nursery worker, we will need two volunteers. Sign Up here.
The Fairmont Little Food Pantry (located on Horne Street near the Pastor Parking) will see an increase in January, as all food pantries do. We are piloting a SignUp Genius to sponsor a day in the food pantry. Please consider signing up as yourself, your family, a Sunday School class, or other group. If you live too far away from the church to fill it, but would like to participate, please consider purchasing a Food Lion or Aldi gift card, and we will find a volunteer who lives near the church to partner with you as your shopper. Filling the pantry costs approximately $50 (for staples) to $75 (for more ready-to-eat meals). Please remember to check the expiration dates, if you're pulling food from your own pantry.
Volunteers are needed of all ages and abilities to help at Wilson Temple’s Food Pantry on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month. Jobs include sorting and packaging food into boxes, and/or lifting and delivering food boxes (~25lbs) to individual cars. Volunteers can sign up for a shift to help between 10:30am until 12:30pm any 2nd or 4th Saturday of the month.
New Feature for our Website and email newsletters: We are going to feature voices from the congregation sharing their experiences of Fairmont events, service, and community fellowship. Over the next few weeks we'll hear from Ken Dulaney about the Book Study, Amanda Rhodes about volunteering at the Wilson Temple UMC Food Pantry, and from Susie Mallard Barnes about Fairmont's mission lunches.
We now have "Our Stories to Tell" under the "Journey Together" tab.
I want to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your hard work. You have made a difference and you have served the Food Pantry in ways that you cannot imagine. Thank you for your loyalty, thank you for your service, thank you for all that you do to help those in need. May God bless you and keep you, may He make His face to shine upon you and give you peace. I am eternally grateful for what you have done!
-Clement Quintyne, Coordinator of WTUMC Food Pantry
