a note from our pastor
With August here, summer will be wrapping up soon. I love the summer sun, but I also love looking forward and preparing for the next phase here at Fair Oaks. This fall we have some great plans that are being worked out as I write. From locating a new Children’s Ministry Director, to smaller adjustments in different ministries, to an over-reaching vision that will touch each of us....God is presenting a new chapter before us.
You know what the word "selfless" means, and maybe you even act that way a good portion of the time. Did you know, though, that a Christian is to be selfless for a very different reason than others? We hope you'll join us for this five-part series that explores what it means to be Selfless, and how to live fuller into the person God intended you to be. Don't forget that you can always catch up on messages by listening to them here or through the Fair Oaks app.
Do you know how online giving works? Ready to connect with a small group or serving opportunity? Have you utilized your smartphone superpowers to get the kids checked in before you get to campus Sunday mornings? Check out our Announcements to stay up-to-date with everything Fair Oaks.
DRAWING NEAR TO GOD: THOUGHTS FROM WORSHIP PASTOR PHILIP GODLEY
James 4:8 says, “Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you...” This verse has been very important to me in the past year. Something I've been learning through drawing near to God, is that God desires us to do this in a particular way.
The church office is open Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. You can also reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org or (925) 687-4810.
