Your digital bulletin
November 29, 2020
Welcome to your digital bulletin. Feel free to look around and see what is going on at Fairway!
We are so glad you have chosen to worship with us this morning. It is our prayer that this would be a place for you to learn, grow, and enjoy community with a family of believers. If you are visiting with us for the first time, please fill out the guest card located in the racks on the back of the chairs in front of you. At the end of the service, please take that card to the foyer and one of our greeters will take it from you and give you a small gift from our church to say thank you for visiting us this morning.

This Morning's Message - Scott West
Ruth 1:19–22 (ESV)
19 So the two of them went on until they came to Bethlehem. And when they came to Bethlehem, the whole town was stirred because of them. And the women said, “Is this Naomi?”
20 She said to them, “Do not call me Naomi; call me Mara, for the Almighty has dealt very bitterly with me.
21 I went away full, and the Lord has brought me back empty. Why call me Naomi, when the Lord has testified against me and the Almighty has brought calamity upon me?”
22 So Naomi returned, and Ruth the Moabite her daughter-in-law with her, who returned from the country of Moab. And they came to Bethlehem at the beginning of barley harvest.
We have closed every other row in our auditorium to help facilitate social distancing. Please leave two empty seats between family units. Thank you.
Our normal practice is to preach expositionally through Scripture, where the main point of the passage preached is the main point of the sermon.
Families with Children
Should you need to leave the service with your child for any reason, we have rooms equipped with a live feed of the service in the back of the sanctuary or in the office lobby.
Governor Abbot’s recent order requiring the wearing of face masks includes the following exception:
Any person who is actively providing or obtaining access to religious worship, but wearing a face-covering is highly encouraged.
While in our worship center we ask that you maintain proper social distancing and practice common-sense safety procedures.
Masks are available at each entrance should you choose to wear one.
Please leave at least two empty chairs between each family unit on a row.
