LETTER FROM OUR PASTOR
As the Pastor of Fair Oaks, I have set my Goal on community. I am praying for us to become a closer knit community of believers. I am praying for us to become a community of believers who touches more lives in our community at home, the workplace and beyond by sharing the Gospel and love of Christ. I am praying that the Lord would develop and grow our community at Fair Oaks spiritually, numerically and relationally with zeal and passion for Him.
Our Soup's On Testimony Sunday was a wonderful time as we gathered to hear Sara Turner share her story of adopting four babies from China. 55 women showed up and were treated to soup and homemade bread and lots of time to catch up with each other around the tables. Even those of us who have known Sara for a long time learned new things about her and the journey she made to adopt. As a single woman, she felt God guided her all the way and gave her key scriptures to claim. We were all encouraged as we heard Sara tell about God's faithfulness. Our next testimony Sunday will be in March. More details to come.
