Scripture: 2 Cor 5:6-17; Revelation 21:9-10, 22-22:9

Sermon Title: Making Sense of Apocalypse, Part 2

Theme: For Part 2, we’ll dive deeper into the genre of apocalyptic, discuss the overarching theme of Revelation, and we’ll study these verses that comprise the conclusion of the book. Come and dip your toe into the murky waters of apocalyptic literature and be enlightened!

MISSIONS SPECIAL OFFERINGS AND COLLECTIONS:

Thank you Fairview from the Missions Committee

Thank you so much for your donations for the Lawrenceville Co-op!

We were able to deliver 275 pounds of food last week! Many thanks, as well, for $100 of donations so the co-op can purchase more! We may be small in number but we have a big heart for our community!!

Update from the Lawrenceville Co-op – 6/1/21

We would appreciate your prayers as we continue discussions about moving away from the drive thru process. Our goal is to start allowing clients to make food choices instead of the pre-packaged boxes and spending time in conversation and prayer.

If you are interested in being a part of this process (making phone calls and praying with the clients while delivering their food order), please reply to

Help Needed

Filling the Gap

We have been blessed since Covid started to have the US National Guard serve alongside us. If you have been at the co-op, you know how hard they work and how much they have helped us. We have been blessed to have them be a part of our family.

We found out today that as of now their orders are up.

We are going to miss having them here tremendously.

With that said, we are going to have some big shoes to fill in serving our clients on prep days. We will need our awesome volunteers to help us find some people who don’t mind helping with some of the lifting.

What we will need:

2 – 3 people able to lift up to 30 lbs. or so (hours available – Monday 7:30 – 10:00 and 4:00-7:00, Wednesday 7:30 – 12, Friday 7:30 – 12)

These are the hours we need covered but you do not have to work for the whole shift.

If you have any older high school or college kids home for the summer that are self-starters and able to lift heavier items, we would love to have them. They can earn volunteer hours.

Have you viewed the beautiful daily scripture readings on Fairview’s congregational and public Facebook page? If not you’re missing out on a special and prayerful way to start your day! And do you know by simply liking and sharing the post to your FB page it generates more exposure for Fairview. A simple outreach tool anyone can do! So all you Facebook, Twitter or Instagram fans bring your knowledge to the Worship Committee as to ways we can share worship and fellowship of Fairview though social media. A special Thank You to Allison Bascas for posting the daily scriptures with exquisite photographs. We appreciate your dedication

Session Highlights

• The PNC has finished the MIF (Ministry Information Form) that will allow Fairview to find our new Pastor.

• June 13th we will have a congregational meeting.

• The session approved spending as much as $7k for the sanctuary air conditioning duct work. We should be back worshiping in the sanctuary in June.

• An invite to worship with On the Way Church on May 30th at 6:30 pm will be emailed to the congregation that includes RSVP. The worship committee will offer a link to view last year’s Trinity Sunday service as an alternative to those unable to attend joint service.

Family Promise

The Missions Committee is supporting Family Promise and their Night Without a Bed Fund-raiser this month of June. I will spend the night in my van on June 23rd to bring awareness to this fundraiser and the plight of the homeless in our community! Family Promise provides a loving hand up to homeless children and their families in our county while they work to get back on their feet. We have supported them as a church for over 15 years. Please consider making a donation and educating others about Family Promise and their ministry to the homeless. You can find out more at my Facebook page, or www.familypromisegwinnett.org. You can donate through the link on my Facebook page or write a check to Fairview with “Family Promise” on the memo line.

Blessings and thank you!
