Carillon Ringers Handbell Concert: Monday, June 5 at 7:00pm: Carillon Ringers is a high school handbell choir from Ladue Chapel Presbyterian Church in St. Louis, Missouri. During their thirty-two year history, the Carillon Ringers have played in churches, schools and retirement communities in the Midwest, on the East and West Coasts, in the Southern and Western United States and in Canada. The Carillon Ringers have been invited to ring at Disney World in Orlando, Florida, at Disneyland in California and have toured England twice.

The Carillon Ringers’ annual tour program features original music for handbells, as well as arrangements of familiar hymn tunes, folk songs and spirituals. Ladue Chapel owns a 75-note (six and 1/2-octave) set of Schulmerich handbells, a 37-note (three octave) set of Whitechapel handbells and a four and 1/2-octave set of choir chimes.

Connections: Adults and children begin the evening in prayer together in our chapel. Adults then engage in interactive, engaging and thought-provoking adult education led by Pastors Brian and Denise while our children share in faith formation and storytelling led by our Children’s Ministry Coordinator, Rachel Boden. Nursery care is available for our youngest attendees. We conclude around 7:30pm each night so there is plenty of time to get little ones to bed. We look forward to seeing you on Wednesdays! *PLEASE NOTE: Kids Connections will take a break for the months of June, July, and August. See you in September!
This month: Rome

Adult Vacation Bible School: Paul and the Early Church This year our children’s Vacation Bible School will be learning all about Paul and the underground church in Rome. But this year it is not just for kids. Every Wednesday night in June at 6:30 in the chapel, we will be learning all about the social and religious life of the earliest church in Rome during the First Century. This class is for everyone who wants to go a little deeper and VBS volunteers who want to learn about the context for our lessons are especially invited.

There are still Sundays available for Summer Music, please see Ashley if you are interested in sharing your gifts with Fairmont.

Mission Information

Daybreak Grand Opening—On Monday June 5 from 3:00-6:00pm, Daybreak (Dayton’s center for children and youth without safe housing) is having a program of ribbon-cutting for their new Project Rescue which we are sponsoring along with tours of their current building. Snacks, too! At 3:00, there will be various speakers and ribbon-cutting. Tours will be on-going. Members of our Mission Team are going and would greatly enjoy having others from Fairmont join them. If interested, contact Sally Kaskocsak, Kathy Radde, Danielle Rhubart, or Jim Runkle.

 How Else Can You Serve as a Disciple? – We continue to collect various items in the Black & White Narthex: soda can pull-tabs (Ronald McDonald House), BoxTops for Education (J.F. Kennedy Elementary), and men’s belts (House of Bread).

Food Pantry—The food pantry is in need of non-perishable food items, including canned fruit in addition to tooth paste, tooth brushes, laundry and dish detergent.

Equal Exchange fair trade coffee is sold after church in Fellowship Hall each Sunday. This is NOT a money maker for the church. Purchasing this coffee will help small farmers in Nicaragua. This is the coffee you have been drinking at church for the last month, so if you like it, consider purchasing some! Coffee will be $7.00 a bag, and there will be several to choose from! You can pay with cash or check.  Make checks payable to Fairmont and put “coffee” in the memo line. There will be a basket next to the coffee, so you can just put your payment in there when you get your coffee. Delicious as well as making a difference…win-win!!
