LEARN MORE ABOUT WHO WE ARE

With our church temporarily suspending most worship and activities, we are sharing these Worship Moments with Pastor Debbie and Music Team Leader Steve each week until we can once again gather together. We hope this will provide you with comfort and a time for reflection. To see previous weeks' messages, go to our Facebook page or https://vimeo.com/fairlawnwest.

Help local families this Christmas

We at Fairlawn-West UCC have committed to providing ten children from three families with gifts and necessities valued at $50 per child. Can you contribute a donation of $25 (we will purchase items for you) or items valued at that amount that have been selected from the sign up sheet linked below? Helping these families is just one way we can work together to show God’s love. 

Join the Caroling Caravan!

Mark your calendar for our Caroling Caravan on Sunday, December 13, when we will travel to our home-bound members to sing Christmas carols outside their front doors.

More details to come!
