THURSDAY SMALL GROUP

The Small Group that normally meets on Thursdays in the Library will take a break during this busy holiday season. Meetings will resume in January. Contact: Kathy Glass.


APPORTIONMENT OFFERING

NEXT SUNDAY, DECEMBER 17

United Methodist Church is a connectional church. This is one of the unique and essentials of the United Methodist Church. Fair Oaks United Methodist Church is an inseparable body of the Cal-Nevada Annual Conference. One way we show this connection is through apportioned giving. Apportioned giving is a term which describes how our local church contributes to our Annual Conference and to the United Methodist Church. Through your support of apportioned giving, we are able to participate in the ministry and mission of the United Methodist Church both locally and around the world. For more information about how apportionments are used, please talk to Bill Floyd (Lay Member to Annual Conference) or Pastor Jeong Park.


ADULT BIBLE STUDY

SUNDAYS AT 9 AM IN THE LIBRARY

December begins the winter quarter of our Bible Study Lesson Plan. The theme for the winter quarter is Faith. We will spend two-thirds of our time this quarter in the New Testament. We will go into the Old Testament only to study the great faith of the prophet Daniel and his vision of the future of faith. Contact: Loren Guffey


HEIFER CLOTHING DRIVE RESULTS

THANK YOU!

We raised $220.70 from the recent clothing drive! That is the most we have raised in the handful of clothing drives we have held. Thank you all! Due to the increased busy-ness of life, there are no plans to hold another clothing drive for a while. Please donate your items to the Church Rummage Sale in February or to your favorite charity.
