Men's Breakfast Fellowship Meets Friday, April 19

Gentlemen

This will be our third month in our study series:  “Christians in the Age of Outrage” by Ed Stetzer.  Buck Johnson is helping lead the discussions.  We had a great turnout and discussion last month.

As previously reported, the book looks at the destructive cultural phenomena of outrage in the public discourse, its causes and multipliers, how Christians contribute to the problem, but how we as messengers of the Gospel can provide solutions.  The book is available on Amazon (hard copy or eBook) or through Cokesbury.

Please respond if you are able to attend and let us all know what you will be bringing for breakfast.

There'll be some strong coffee brewed.  See you Friday morning at 7 am.

Raleigh Wesley Foundation & Fairmont Saying Good-Bye to Kirk

Celebrating Kirk and Anita!
Many thanks for many years of service to all of us! We love you and will miss you so on Sunday, April 28, after worship we want to share one more “good ol’ Methodist pot luck” meal together. Fairmont folks will bring their best dishes ever to share as we remember the “good times” and wish you much success in your next adventure.

Permanent Endowment Fund Committee

The Permanent Endowment Fund Committee met last week and has been educating us to their purpose and how the funds are administered.

What about the Fairmont Permanent Endowment Fund? The fund has existed for 40 years. Within that period thousands of dollars have been awarded to adults and youths in the church for a variety of purposes, including:
Church & Wesley student mission trips, Summer Camp Scholarships, Early Learning Center Security System, Camp #livedifferently, College scholarships for Fairmont High School students, Women of Faith Choir (and much more).
