NEWS AND UPCOMING EVENTS

Bible study plans for Advent

Tuesdays through Advent, at 11:30 a.m., we will read and discuss the readings from our Advent devotional for each week. We plan to meet in-person at the church, and also via Zoom 

(see link below). Take your pick!

 

On Wednesdays through Advent we would like to do something different in the spirit of community, and meet in-person at the church for a light soup and bread supper and Advent book discussion. At least 10 people will need to sign up for this option to move forward. We hope you'll join us! Look for a sign up sheet at church Sunday. 

 

Tuesday 11:30 a.m.

Help us help Resnik, Case students

This year we have two opportunities to help children throughout the holidays. The first opportunity is in conjunction with our neighbors at Resnik CLC. This year they are in need of coats. We will be collecting kids coats -- sizes 5 thru 12, or small, medium, or large -- from now until the end of the year, and we will be delivering them weekly, as they have already experienced a need -- especially for boys. Coats can be dropped off during the week to the church office or you can bring them with you on Sunday mornings. If you prefer to make a financial donation please make your check to Fairlawn-West and include “Resnik Coats” in the memo.



We will also be helping several families from the Case CLC Christmas Project once again. Simply take a gift tag from the tree at church, purchase the item and bring it back to church (unwrapped). Please contact John Gossett with any questions you may have.

Christmas worship plans set

Please plan to join us for an especially fun Christmas story time and worship on Sunday, Dec. 19 at 10 a.m. We also once again will gather for our traditional candlelight Christmas Eve service at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 24. Come early at 7 p.m. to enjoy carols and refreshments. More details to come!
