Mission activities of some of Fairfields’ members this summer – pray for them, please:
- Sophia Sapanara: New York state, youth construction project
- Kevin & Judy Mooers: Jamaica, witnessing and training others, child evangelism
Fairfields sponsors and participates in several formal outreach programs:
- scholarships: the Covington-Hurst Educational Fund (CHEF) provides financial assistance to local students attending higher educational institutions.
- child evangelism: a group of local people affiliated with Child Evangelism Fellowship who share the Gospel with children where they are, outside of church.
- Christian Men United: men who seek to show God’s love and racial cooperation by repairing and building home items such as handicap ramps for people in need.
There are also several informal outreach programs including:
- gleaning: several local farmers let us pick ripe vegetables for the area Food Bank. These are announced when schedulted.
- Meals On Wheels: the men deliver meals to county residents who cannot purchase or prepare their own meals.
- physical assistance: often, neighbors need help with various activities or chores within the home, or transportation.
Additionally, Fairfields provides prayer and financial support to charities such as:
- local food pantries
- supplies for our schools
- Christmas toy drives for local needy children
What an honor when the Lord chooses us to show others how much He loves them!
