Welcome To Fairview Presbyterian Church
Lawrenceville, GA

Our Worship Service will held in the Fellowship Hall at 11:00 a.m. beginning May 2, 2021. In an effort to keep everyone safe and healthy, please take note and follow the safety precautions listed further down this page. If you are unable to join us at this time, we hope that you will feel the love of Christ through the Word proclaimed through speech and song in our virtual worship, and that you will join us in body and in spirit when you are able. If you have questions, contact us via email through this website or please call (770)-963-7059

 

IMPORTANT!

We will worship INDOORS in the Fellowship Hall during May as we continue to safely distance and wear our masks. We will open the windows and doors for ventilation and ask that everyone abide by the safety guidelines as we get one step closer to moving back into our Sanctuary. Come join us on Sundays at 11:00 AM and hear the Word of the Lord proclaimed through word and song!

For those who are unable to join in person, the service will be recorded and will be available for viewing online.

Latest Sermon

May 9th: : Sixth Sunday of Easter

Scripture: 1 John 5:1-6; John 15:9-17

Sermon Title: Abiding and Abundant Love

Theme: Jesus’ words to the disciples in this Gospel text offer many assurances of our place in God’s heart. We’ll compare the love this passage speaks of to how we love others in the world, and we’ll inspect how we might draw closer to emulating in our own lives the kind of love Jesus promises us.

Mother’s Day ROSES

Since we did not do poinsettias for Christmas or lilies for Easter; an idea was orchestrated to purchase needed roses for Fairview’s rose garden. A rose plant will be purchased with a donation of $25.00 in the memory or honor of a loved one. Dan Hudson has offered to purchase plants with the donations as 10-15 roses need replacement. If donations exceed roses required; additional revenue will go toward mulch and other items needed to maintain garden. There will be an insert in the bulletin in the near future for you to complete.

Thank you.

Eastertide Co-op Donations! – Easter (4/4) through Pentecost (5/23)

The Missions Committee would like to celebrate Eastertide (which is the 7 weeks following Easter culminating in Pentecost) with a collection of non-perishable food and toiletries for the Lawrenceville Co-op!

Celebrate the joy of the resurrection and the gift of the Holy Spirit by shar-ing with your neighbors who are in need! There will be a bin marked for “Co-op Donations” at each of the next seven Sundays that we meet in person! The Weekly Blast will contain a reminder and a list of the Co-op’s current needs!

Please bring your donations and help your neighbors in despair feel the love of Christ!

Thank you,

The Missions Committee

CARING HANDS FUND OFFERING DURING THE MONTH OF MAY

Also during the month of May, we will be collecting a special offering for the Caring Hands Fund of Presbyterian Homes of Georgia. Presbyterian Homes of Georgia offers 6 distinct communities of retirement living for Georgia seniors. During its 72 years of operation, Presbyterian Homes has never had to ask any resident to leave based on their financial resources.

The Caring Hands Fund is a vital part of ministry of the Presbyterian Homes of Georgia. Your gift to the fund helps financially burdened residents with the cost of their room and board, the cost of their meals, the cost of transportation to medical visits, and in many other ways. Please consider a gift to this very special offering to honor or in memory of a special senior in your life.

Prayer Request for PNC

The Pastor Nominating Committee continues to request your prayers as we close in on the completion of the Ministry Information Form which identifies the needs of our church and our church expectations of the called Pastor. The most recent weekly meeting was opened with the quotation from Acts 2:46-47 which we wished to share with you. Quoted from the NIV: 46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.

We felt that this was especially appropriate for the role of Fairview as members and our role in the community.

Thank you for your continued prayers.
