LEARN MORE ABOUT WHO WE ARE

Watch this video as the United Church of Christ's quarterly medical debt forgiveness campaign continued in St. Louis over the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend. Twelve St. Louis and Missouri Mid-South Conference congregations and the Deaconess Foundation joined forces to come up with over $100,000 in donations. As medical debt at the collection agency level can be purchased for pennies on the dollar, these UCC institutions turned that $100,000 into $12.9 million of debt forgiveness for over 11,000 St. Louis poverty-stricken families.

 

NEWS AND UPCOMING EVENTS

Spreading generosity next door

Wow -- we did it again! Thanks to all of you for your generosity as we collected items under our Giving Trees for Resnik CLC students. We handed the items over to principal Kristen Booth and she was delighted by our thoughtfulness for our neighboring school. In total we collected: 563 pairs of underwear, 13 T-shirts; 269 pairs of socks; 83 pairs of mittens or gloves; 7 mitten/hat sets; 7 scarves; 19 hats; and1 satchel. THANK YOU!

Support GapPack!

Thanks to all of you who continue to donate to this ministry — you helped fill 36 little tummies with food weekly! We can always use staple items like hot chocolate, individual applesauce or fruit cups and oatmeal packets. Please leave your donations on the table outside the main sanctuary doors. GapPack bags are delivered every Friday to Resnik school for the children to take home for the weekend; they are so happy to receive this gift of food. 

Newcomers Circle open to all

If you would like to learn more about Fairlawn-West and the United Church of Christ please join Pastor Debbie in her study after our 10 a.m. worship on Sunday, Feb. 23. Participating in this circle of conversation, where you will have an opportunity to ask questions and receive information about us, is especially important if you are interested in becoming a member of this church. Please sign up on the board near the parlor, call the church office, or email Pastor Debbie if you plan to attend. A light snack will be provided; our time together will last about 1 hour. For those interested, a service for membership will take place in March.
