Hurricane Harvey Relief

Hurricane Harvey / Irma may have been downgraded to a tropical storm, but the torrential rains have caused historic flooding in parts of Texas and Louisiana. Thousands of people have been stranded by rivers and streams that have overflown their banks and submerged homes, churches, businesses and roads. The Presbyterian Disaster Assistance is relying on the generosity of Presbyterians to provide financial and hands-on support to help the whole church stand with these communities and help them recover. The needs are great. God's people are once again called on to Give, Act and Pray. You may respond with a check made out to Fairview with "DR000169-Harvey" on the memo line. Please pray for those who are facing grief and uncertainty and need God's comfort and strength to help them begin the healing and rebuilding process.

Food Pantry

The God's Pantry

In 2016 Fairview gave over 8,630 items to the Lawrenceville Co-op's Food Bank. Our goal for 2017 is 8,000 items, which is about 545 per month.

We start another year bringing in our offerings to God's Pantry for the Lawrenceville CO-OP. We increased our giving by 38% or 2,365 units. An outstanding effort by the Fairview Family, Fairview's Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. We start off this year with 239 units in January and that is 10 units over last year. We need an average of 545 units per month to meet last year without the Christmas Tree. We just had our Chili Cook-off and Lent starts March 1st. Both of these activities and our weekly giving should bring in a lot of units for the CO-OP. Thank you for all your help MISSION COMMITTEE!

The Co-op requests donations of canned meats, peanut butter, cereal (oats and grits) ,canned fruit AND They also expressed a real need for toilet paper, soap, toothpaste, and other hygiene products since "Food Stamps" cannot be used to purchase these items.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP AND DONATIONS.

FAIRVIEW FAMILY ANSWERS THE CALL AND DELIVERS 939 UNITS TO THE LAWRENCEVILLE CO-OP. AT ATHE MOMENT "GOD'S PANTRYI" IS EMPTY; BUT I KNOW IT WILL BE FILLED BY THE END OF JUNE!! TARGET FOR JUNE IS 400 UNITS WHICH WILL KEEP US ON PACE FOR THE YEAR.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!

Bible Study

Joyful Clarion Adult Sunday School

It's that time again! Sunday School starts up on Sunday, September 10, from 9:45-10:30 a.m.

Join us in Fellowship Hall on the 10th for a potluck breakfast and social time, and discussion of our upcoming Sunday School Year curriculum.

Teachers Marian Hudson, C. Ann Gittings, along with Allison Bascas, will be starting our Sunday School year off the following Sunday, September 17, with "Feasting on the Word", a lectionary-based curriculum. We will be studying some of the same Biblical texts that will be read and proclaimed during Worship on the same Sunday - enhancing and reinforcing our understanding of our faith, and how we can serve God. This study will take us to April, at which time we will finish out our Sunday School year with a study of Acts, taught from the Warren Wiersbe Bible study series. Lynn Curry will be delivering the study from Acts, which will take us through the end of our Sunday School year in May.

All materials you need for these 2 studies will be provided by Fairview.

Prayer & Bible Study will meet on every other Monday, starting September 11, 2017 from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. in Fairviews Fellowship Hall. Please bring a sandwich and drink for lunchtime. We will meet every other Monday. Please join us!

Title:“Power in Numbers”
Scripture: Psalm 149 & Matthew 18:15-20
Thought for Reflection: The gifts that God has given us are innumerable, this is true, but the gift of Gods Holy Spirit when two or more gather in the name of Jesus is perhaps the most humbling. It is amazing how God can take us, humble sinners, and use us to His purposes through the power of that Spirit.
