Latest Sermon

Aug 1st: Tenth Sunday after Pentecost

Liturgist: Janet Russell

Scripture: Exodus 16:2-4, 9-15; Ephesians 4:1-16

Sermon Title: The Common Heap

Theme: We depart from the Gospel stories this week and go back to life with the Israelites, the Exodus people. They endured so much, but they did it together. Today, we listen and learn about how important community is both to our identity and to our survival, both as individuals and as church.

Fairview Presbyterian Church cordially invites you to attend our 198th HOMECOMING August 8, 2021

Homecoming service 11 o’clock am

Sermon by Reverend Stephanie Bishop, Interim Pastor.

For thus says the Lord: Jeremiah 29:11

For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the LORD, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope.

Ephesians 4:29 Let no evil talk come out of your mouths, but only what is useful for building up, as there is need, so that your words may give grace to those who hear.

As we have been hearing the history of Fairview this summer, we have listened to stories of the Session wrestling throughout the years with how best to do ministry at this little church on the hill here in Lawrenceville, GA. As we celebrate 198 years of being church, come and hear about how Fairview can continue to faithfully discern how to best build up and give grace to this community while looking toward the future with hope.

MISSIONS COLLECTION OF ITEMS FOR CO-OP

AND BLESSING BAGS FOR NEEDY IN OUR COMMUNITY

Homecoming is right around the corner! As always, Missions is promoting a collection of food and toiletry items for the Lawrenceville Co-Op. We are also collecting items for Blessing/Care Bags and Publix gift cards which Margo will have in the office to hand out to those coming by the church asking for assistance. There are posters in the church for you to purchase a Blessing/Care Bag item, and please return these items on Homecoming Sunday, August 8, along with your donations of food/toiletry items for the Lawrenceville Co-Op.

Thank you, Fairview, for your ever-present generous spirit as we try to help those less fortunate than we are.
