This Fellowship started years ago in memory of beloved member and long-term Sunday School teacher Cornelia Tingle. ‘Nelia’ was very involved in Fairfields’ mission work and when she passed her adult Sunday School began to meet to carry on her work.
The tradition stuck. They gather monthly, October through June, on the 2nd Thursday at 6 pm for a covered dish meal and business meeting. They do not meet in July and August, and typically have a picnic in September.
The group’s mission work includes supporting activities like the local Food Pantry, and the American Cancer Society Relay for Life. They also collect and deliver supplies to county schools twice a year, and conduct annual Christmas toy drives for local needy children. They support CHEF to help deserving local students defray education costs. And they make love baskets for shut-ins.
There’s no ‘membership roll’ and they’d love for you to come join them.
