THANK YOU
Dear Church Family,
Thank you for all the acts of kindness
(calls, flowers, cards, food) shown to us
during the passing of my mother, Mildred
Thomas.
Most of all, your prayers have
helped us through this time of sorrow.
Thank you for being a caring
church family.
Love,
Gloria & Joel Williams & family
Freedom is like the air we breathe;
We don’t miss it until we’re deprived of it.

GRATEFUL HEARTS
Thanksgiving is right around the
corner, and we have so much to be
grateful for!
I’m grateful for my church, Fairfax
First and this family of faith. The
church provides so many opportunities to be blessed, worship services,
prayer for each other, growth and
discipleships, youth and children’s
ministries, caring and helping hands,
etc.
This month, we are going to have an
opportunity to return thanks with a
“Thanksgiving offering” a way to
show our gratitude for our church
and all she provides. The offering
will be used to help offset the budget
deficit we have and hopefully will
help us close the year out in better
shape financially. “Thanksgiving
Offering Envelopes” will be provided and you can give any time during
the month of November.
Pray for our Youth and Children as
they lead the worship service this
coming Sunday morning, November
16.
