No Youth Choir Practice today
Because youth choir is singing during worship today (November 12), there will be NO youth choir rehearsal after worship. Join us next Sunday at 11:15.
Decorate for Advent
We plan to decorate the church for Advent on Saturday, Dec. 2nd, starting at 9:00am. (NOTE: This is NOT Thanksgiving weekend since Advent starts later this year.) If we have enough volunteers, we will hang greenery along the side walls, hang our wreaths and put up our Chrismon tree. There will be ladders, but no moving and stacking of chairs or the high scaffolding up to the ceiling. We’ll also put up our Giving Tree in the narthex.
We would love a bit of help in doing this, so if you can come, please do so. Questions? Contact Donna S.
November is Pledge Drive Month
November is pledge drive month at Fairwood Community UMC. Letters and pledge cards were mailed the last week of October. We ask that you prayerfully consider the amount you wish to give to your church for 2024. We expect that a similar amount to 2023 will be needed to support our mission work; therefore, our goal is $380,000.
Extra copies of the pledge cards are available in the narthex (as you enter the sanctuary).
Questions? Contact Jennifer
