Worship Team Invitation
Would you like to see the pews filled on Sunday morning? Can you picture a sanctuary full of people worshiping together each week? Help us make this dream a reality!
Please join the Worship Team for an open meeting to share and explore ideas, questions, and concerns in an effort to support the continued growth of our congregation. We welcome ALL those who are interested to meet with us for a brief meeting on Sunday, November 29 following the worship service. We are confident that by working together, we can achieve great things! Please contact Laura Sherwood or Zet Ford-Medina with any questions. We hope to see you on November 29!


Holiday Craft Fair Needs Second Giving Table and Silent Auction Items 
We are still looking for new and slightly used items to be donated for the Second Gift Giving Table and Silent Auction.
We desperately need children's gifts, such as electronic games, sports items, dolls and other things that children would love to get for Christmas!  This fundraiser involves all of us.  I pray that everyone will bring something to the table, either with gifts, baked goods or a helping hand....

Annual Christmas Pageant 
"The Birth of Jesus":
We will be performing our annual Christmas Pageant on Sunday, Dec 20 at the 10am Worship Service.  This is a great way for all of our kids to participate in a wonderful Fairfield Grace tradition.  Memorizing is not necessary; however, singing is.  We will be practicing each Sunday, starting November 15th until Pageant day so please try to come to church each week. Next week, during Sunday school, we will be assigning parts.  More information to follow!

Consecration Sunday is Coming...
Consecration Sunday is November 22.  Our congregation’s Stewardship Team has selected the New Consecration Sunday Stewardship Program as a way to teach the biblical and spiritual principles of generous giving. You will be hearing more about this program at Sunday Worship Service. To learn more, please see the Quester or read the Bulletin Insert.  

Breakfast with Santa 
Santa will be coming to Fairfield-Grace on December 12 for our Annual Breakfast with Santa from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.  We need your help to make Breakfast with Santa a success!

Please contact Laura Sherwood to volunteer (203-292-7241, lirauscher@yahoo.com).
