Love & Justice Sermon Series Returns to Fairmont this July!

For the month of July, we will have a variety of voices in our pulpit to proclaim the love and justice of the Gospel. We will hear the scriptures proclaimed from persons with experiences similar to ours and from those far different. We are still confirming our guest preachers. Make an effort this summer to come and hear these beautiful voices share the Good News, a word of challenge and a message of hope! This is a wonderful opportunity to invite friends and neighbors as well.
Our series last year was well received and we look forward to this year’s guests.

Starts Monday! Camp #livedifferently is June 25-29

Coming in Two Weeks! Camp #livedifferently is June 25-29, 2018 from 9:00 AM - Noon
Camp #livedifferently at Fairmont United Methodist Church offers children 4 years - 5th grade a hands-on experience to make a difference. This camp provides 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.

They will be putting together lunch bags for our lunch bag ministry, share bags to hand out as needed (similar to the lunch bags, but include a toothbrush and tissues in addition to the food), and hygiene kits. They'll make blankets, stuffed animals and activity bags for children at Duke hospital and much more!

Twenty-three children are already signed up! But there’s still room. Call the church office for details, 919-832-3316.
Many thanks to those of you who have already volunteered, but more help is needed. If you are interested in volunteering to help or for more information, contact Tamara Ladich, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
