In 2003, the Integrated Board of Fairmont United Church discussed the possibilities of having a Church Newsletter. This idea was brought to the congregation and a competition took place to decide on a name. The submission of “Fairmont Family Ties” presented by Jane Carroll, was agreed upon.
While the main purpose of “Family Ties” is to be informative regarding activities within Fairmont, it also strives to provide upbeat articles and inspirational messages. It is also a platform where the congregation is kept aware of the “workings” of the church through:
• Minutes for Mission
• Mission and Service Fund
• Board meetings
• Church committees
• Special services
• Youth activities
The Newsletter is printed monthly, and the Fairmont church family is encouraged to submit items for publication to the Editor, Lillian Cree.
