A Snippet of Reformed Doctrine
Q. 191. For what do we pray in the Third request?
A . In the third request (your will be done on earth as it is in heaven1), we acknowledge that we and all humans are by nature not only completely incapable of and unwilling to know and to do the will of God2 but are actively prone to rebel against his word,3 to be unhappy with and complain about his providence,4 and are naturally inclined to follow our own selfish desires and the directions of Satan.5 We pray then that God would by his Spirit remove from us and others all spiritual blindness,6 weakness,7 indisposition to spiritual activities,8 and perverseness of heart,9and that he would by his grace make us willing to know, do, and submit to his will in every circumstance,10 with the same kind of humility,11 cheerfulness,12 faithfulness,13 steadfastness,14zeal,15 sincerity,16 and constancy17 that the angels have in heaven.18

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!
