 Seasons of Sorrow: The Pain of Loss & The Comfort of God – Led by Scott & Heidi Shepler (Fellowship Hall) Now thru March 3.

After the death of his twenty-year-old son in November 2020, reformed pastor Tim Challies began to process his grief through writing. In this book, Tim shares real-time reflections from the first year of grief—through the seasons from fall to summer—introducing readers to what he describes as the “ministry of sorrow.”

Living Life BackwardHow Ecclesiastes Teaches Us to Live in Light of the End – Led by Nick Orell (Kitchen) Now thru March 3

What constitutes a meaningful life? We seek fulfillment in success, prosperity, recognition, relationships, and even self-sufficiency, but we always seem to come up short. If you feel you are coming up empty in your life and need a bigger vision and greater purpose, this accessible study of Ecclesiastes by David Gibson will show you that all of your hope for meaning lies in getting to know your Creator.

Director of Student Ministries, Tony Carroscia will be preaching on Zechariah 13: 7-9 “ The King Who Came to be Struck”

The King is Coming. What should we believe about this coming savior? How should our lives be affected? Our Director of Student Ministries, Tony Carroscia, will preach on Zechariah 13:7-8, another prophecy about our  Unexpected Messiah.

3|Evening Worship

6pm Special Evening Worship Service – We are holding a special focus to our evening service: “Christmas Evening Worship and PCA Thanks and Prayer.” Remember Christmas by choosing your favorite Christmas hymns. And, this being our 50th anniversary of the PCA, Pastor Ric will teach about “Fairview and the PCA.” He will teach about Fairview’s former denomination called the RPCES, “Joining and receiving” in 1983, and the PCA. Our first identity is Christian. But being in a denomination allows for biblical depth, joint mission, and accountability.

     The PCA is “Faithful to the Scriptures, True to the Reformed Faith, and Obedient to the Great Commission.”
