We'd like to welcome you to Fairview Church of God!
Once again, in-person Sunday services are being held; however, some changes are in effect to make things safer for those who attend.
Bulletins will be available at the door for you to pick up; a greeter may be present for guests but will not be shaking hands. We also won't have "meet and greet" time during the service. The offering plate will be at the stairwell as you enter the sanctuary. Please observe social distancing practices: allow 6 feet between those you don't share a household with, and use soap and water or hand sanitizer when needed. (Sanitizer dispensers can be found in the entryway.) In addition, please ask before approaching people, because they may not be comfortable with close contact. We will provide masks if possible, but it would be better if those attending were to bring their own masks from home.
If you aren't able to join us in person, don't forget the YouTube recordings of Pastor Scott's sermons. A link to these can be found under the "Sermons" tab.
9:00 a.m. - Sunday School (mid-September-mid-May) NOTE: Sunday School has been paused for a few weeks. It will resume on February 27.

News and Coming Events
Prayer Requests — Each week there are prayer requests for us to keep close at heart. Sometimes they are shared during Sunday morning services, and sometimes via the prayer chain. Even if you haven't been notified, a general prayer for the requests is welcome at any time. God knows each need.
Communion Sunday — We take Communion the First Sunday of each month. We practice open Communion which means that we invite all who have accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior to join with us.
Missions on the Move — This group meets at various times. Watch the Sunday bulletin for announcements of upcoming meetings.

Third Sunday Lunches
To grow in fellowship and love, we sometimes share a meal following services. We all bring a favorite dish to share, but don't feel that you can't participate if you didn't fix anything that day. There's always more than enough for everyone!
As an outreach to our neighbors, we occasionally host a free meal (usually in the evening and at the church). Dress is casual; the food and fellowship are great!
Please keep an eye on the church calendar for dates of upcoming meals.
