Equal Exchange fair trade coffee will now be 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!!
