A Snippet of Reformed Doctrine
Q. 191. For what do we pray in the Second request?
A . In the second request (your kingdom come1), we acknowledge that we and all humans are by nature under the dominion of sin and Satan.2 We pray then that the kingdom of sin and Satan be destroyed,3 that the gospel be preached throughout the whole world,4 that the Jews be converted,5and that the full number of the Gentiles come in.6 We pray that the church would be supplied with evangelical officers and regulations,7 purged from corruption,8 and recognized and supported by the civil authorities.9 We pray for the regulations of Christ to be administered fully and that these regulations may effectively convert sinners, while confirming, comforting, and building up those who are already converted.10 And we pray that Christ would rule over our hearts in the here and now,11 that he would hurry up and come again, when we shall reign with him forever,12 and that he would be pleased so to rule over everything that goes on in the world as may best bring about all these results.13

There are always many opportunities to serve with your fellow Fairview family and friends. To learn more and/or sign up simply click on the opportunity(ies) that interests you below!!
VBS 2018 - Focus your telescopes!
The theme this summer is Galactic Starveyors. This VBS reignites children's sense of discovery and exploration as they marvel at the wonders of the starry sky. Most of all, they gaze toward the God who created the universe and everything in it. They will learn that He wants to have a personal relationship with them.
We will need lots of volunteers to make this another Fairview success! Please see Valerie Petrie for more information or tell her of your ability to help create and decorate, make snacks, teach a lesson, lead songs, wrangled children, play games or act crazy with our awesome kids! This is a wonderful outreach and a wonderful way to serve our community and our Lord.
Come on into the clubhouse and show kids that God is over the moon in love with them!
