August 28, FUN, FOOD, and FELLOWSHIP—The 4th Sunday of August.  Would YOU like to volunteer to do the coffee hour?  It’s easy to do. Just get together with some friends and plan some food and you are all set. It can be ANYTHING you want it to be. Please sign up so we can all continue to enjoy the fellowship this brings. The sign-up sheet is on the bulletin board that is closest to the Fellowship Hall. Thank you.

Holiday at Home—Fairmont is once again providing water for the Holiday at Home event. Would you be willing to bring in a case or two of bottled water by the end of August? They should be bottles that are straight up and down (without an indentation). Please leave them on the stage, if possible, or in the coat room and we will move them up for you!  Thank you in advance for your donation!

House of Bread – The next volunteer day is Saturday, November 5. This is perfect for those of you who work or are in school during the week.  Please sign up on the Mission Team Bulletin Board.

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!!
