United Women in Faith - 12/15/23 2:00 PM

Our local United Women in Faith group invites you to gather for Christmas tea at a new day and time. We gather on FRIDAY, December 15 at 2:00 pm. We’ll share tea and a dessert buffet, sing a few carols and enjoy good fellowship.

We suggest you bring …

  • teacup and a story about it (or a story about a holiday tradition). If you don’t have a teacup, we’ll have some.
  • dessert or treat to share.
  • Donations of gift cards to support the Communities in Schools programs for Kent and Renton/Tukwila. They ask for cards for Safeway, Fred Meyer, Target or Walmart.


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. A similar amount to 2023 will be needed to support our mission work; therefore, our goal is $380,000.
12/3/23 update

60 responses and $259,010 pledged to our 2024 budget

Extra copies of the pledge cards are available in the narthex (as you enter the sanctuary).

Blue Christmas A Solemn & Meditative Service

The Blue Christmas Worship Service is an addition to the Christmas Season.  It centers around the longest night of the year when the days are growing shorter and light diminishes.  Blue Christmas takes place during Advent, when we are preparing and waiting.  We wait for HOPE.  We wait for the one who brings us light.

Are you struggling with loss, anxiety, depression, loneliness,

longing, grief, pain, heartbreak, stress?

Is someone you care about feeling loss?

Are you wanting a more quiet and contemplative service?

Are you feeling overwhelmed?

Is the “news” getting you “down?”

Our world may be dark, difficult, lonely and hurting but there is hope. The Blue Christmas worship service focuses on the promise of HOPE.

Join us on Sunday, December 3rd at 4:00pm for this meditative worship.


Please share our Advent Flyers with Friends and Neighbors!

We have Advent flyers to share with your neighbors, friends and relatives. Copies
are on the table in the narthex (the gathering area outside the sanctuary). Some
were also mailed to homes recently.
The four Sundays of Advent (Dec. 3, Dec. 10, Dec. 17 and Dec. 24), we have
10:00am worship services and programs/classes for our children and youth.
Our Christmas eve services will be at 4:00pm and 7:00pm, both livestreamed on
our public Facebook page and on our online worship page of our website

Holy Communion today

If you’re online with us today and wish to participate in Holy Communion, have
some sort of bread and juice ready for later in the worship service. All are welcome
to the table.

Let us prepare for worship

A Reminder from the Worship Committee –
The Prelude centering music begins at 10:00 and it is time to quiet ourselves and
prepare to worship God.
Thank you!
