New Message Series
There are things in our lives we've learned to turn a blind eye to. We've become so accustomed to these behaviors that we don't always realize when we are doing them. Yet, we do these things for a reason - it isn't enough to say, "I didn't know I did that," or "It's just a habit." There's a motive behind every thing we do and, sometimes, our reasoning comes from a place of hurt, insecurity, pride, or entitlement. Jeremiah 17:10 says, "But I, the Lord, search all hearts and examine secret motives. I give all people their due rewards, according to what their actions deserve." The Lord knows what our true motives are, even when we try to ignore them. Join us as we look at our blind side.
Kids entering 4th - 6th grade in Fall 2017 are welcome to join our fun-filled activities throughout the summer. We're kicking things off with a trip to the movies on Wednesday, June 14th! To register for this event, or to learn more about the rest of the summer calendar, please visit the Information Desk, contact Laura Olson ( firstname.lastname@example.org ), or keep an eye on www.fairoaks.org/kids.
If you’re new to Fair Oaks, we invite you to join us after service on the second Sunday of each month. Pastor Tom and other ministry leaders will be in the Fireside Room of the Adult Learning Center, and they would love to meet you and answer any questions you may have. Stop by and say hi!
FOC's Global Outreach Team is working to provide upcoming videos of our missionaries in the field. Our own John Henry has just returned from a short-term mission in Spain at L' Arcada camp. Look for John on Sundays and get an in-person description of the great work happening in Spain. If you are interested in learning more about missions at FOC or becoming a member of the Global Outreach Team, contact John Pickrell (email@example.com).
