Connecting to God, to each other, to the world


We are continuing to accept donations to help with tornado relief efforts in western Kentucky. You can mail a check to the church, or drop a donation in the lockbox next to the door under the canopy. Please write "tornado relief" in the memo line of your check. We are also accepting gift cards to help those affected by this tragedy. Gift cards to places like Walmart, Target, Kroger, Lowes, and Home Depot would be very helpful. Thank you again for your help in this endeavor. Please continue to pray for all those who were affected by these storms and for all the workers helping in the relief efforts.
Our young people will be going to the annual Hearts on Fire youth conference in Gatlinburg this November. To help offset the costs associated with this event we are asking you to help with the following fundraisers:
- Quilt Raffle: Lana Phillips has made a beautiful quilt for a raffle. A donation of $1 will give you a chance to win the quilt (or you can get 6 chances for a donation of $5). The winner will be selected during the VBS family night event on Sunday June 12th.  
- Hire the Youth: If you have some odd jobs that need to be done, you can "hire" our young people to take care of those for you. Let Bro. Dustin know and he will schedule a time for the youth to do the work. You can then make a donation of any amount for the trip.
After missing 2020 and 2021, VBS at Fairview is back! This year we will do a 3 day Bible school, going from Wednesday June 8th to Friday June 10th. We will then have a family night with a cookout and games on Sunday June 12th. If you would like to be a part of VBS 2022 - by teaching, doing crafts or games, or helping in the kitchen - please add your name to the sign up sheet on the communion table ASAP. 
Don't forget that the youth “blessings box” is still in the foyer. Please continue to put an extra dollar or two in the box from time to time. All money collected will be used for an outreach project (like the 2022 Thanksgiving meal). Thank you for your continued help with this great project. 
This year Fairview will be packing boxes for boys and girls 2-4 years of age. We need donations of the followings items to help fill these special gifts:
  COLORING BOOKS         CRAYONS          SMALL CUPS          WASHCLOTHS          SOAP          SPOONS         
  NOTEBOOKS                  PENCILS           HOT WHEELS         HAIR TIES/RIBBONS
You can find these items at stores like Dollar General, Wal-Mart, and Target. Pick one or two up on your next shopping trip. Then bring them to church with you and place them in the OCC box in the Sunday School office.  You can also make a monetary donation and OCC committee members will do the shopping for you. Thank you for helping this wonderful ministry.
The ladies of the church meet for lunch on a regular basis. The next meal will take place at Shaker Village on Tuesday, May 24th. Reservations are required, so if you want to attend you must add your name to the sheet on the communion table. The church van will be available for anyone who would like a ride to the luncheon.
