Calvin’s Cove - Fairview Lake Property. With the onset of cooler temperatures, Calvin's Cove has been
winterized. The locks have been changed on the bath house doors and the pump house to prevent entry into
these buildings. You may still use the facility, as the locks on the access road gates will remain unchanged,
just be aware that there will be no water or electricity available.
IT'S ‘SOUP KITCHEN TIME’ on Tuesday, November 18th from 8:30 am until 12:30 pm when we
serve food to the homeless people. This is an outreach ministry of Fairview. Please call or email Sarah

bless all the volunteers who assisted us at the September soup kitchen: Linda Cleary, Duane and Holly
Perry, Debbie Woods, Jean Clegg, Suzanne and Wyatt Friend, and Marilyn Bendorf.
Looking For an Easy Way To Help the Church? Have you been looking for an easy opportunity to
serve at church? We need one more person to help out by joining an usher team. It's an easy way to get
involved and help serve on Sundays. If you'd like to help fill a need, please contact Patrick Rodgers at
