New On Sundays - Children's Church

Children’s church began in September. This is an idea that has been a long time coming. It will be held in the Worship Center starting right after Gathering of the Children’s time in the Sanctuary and will be for children ages 4 - 8. We will walk through the same motions that are used in the Sanctuary during the worship hour. We will base the message on what Pastor Liz uses making it appropriate for their ages. One youth will be asked to help as well.
Thank you for your prayers for God’s wisdom.

CROP Hunger Walk is Sunday, October 22

The Greater Triangle CROP Hunger Walk is Sunday, October 22nd at 2 pm at NCSU at the Court of North Carolina (just off Hillsborough St). It is the same but has a new name since we include Cary, Garner, Holly Springs, and a few other Wake County cities and towns. Most of the money (75 percent) will go to overseas development projects and then rest will go to local agencies like the Food Bank and Urban Ministries. And some of the money will go to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. Fairmont is a sponsor and we will have a water stop again. Fairmont’s team is forming now. You can go to this link to sign up to walk and donate. Sign Up or Donate

Fairmont Fall Marketplace is Saturday, November 4!

Last year’s “Pop Up Market” has been renamed, but the concept is the same, with a Silent Auction, vendors and crafts. Details are still being tweaked, but it’s not too early to start asking your favorite merchants for Silent Auction items and gift certificates. Donation letters and forms are available in the church office to give to merchants for tax purposes.

We will also need volunteers to help with set up and take down. Contact the church office or Jean Porter (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) if you can help.

Vendor applications are now available in the church office or download here.Vendor Application
