THE CALL

SEPTEMBER 2012

Volume 67, Issue 7

Dear Friends,

Fairmont

Presbyterian

It is hard to believe this is my last Call article! For 40 years, I have lived with the certainty that there will always be another newsletter article, sermon, Session meeting, hospital visit, communion service, and so on. However, this is my last Call article and in two weeks, I will have preached my last sermon at Fairmont Presbyterian Church. I italicized the word last to emphasize the point that my ministry at Fairmont is completed. We need to embrace this reality. I trust this article will help us accept our "new normal!" I begin by expressing my thanks to God for calling me to Fairmont and my thanks to you for your patience, grace and love over these 15 years. I have sought to be faithful to God, scripture and you, God's people. However, I am aware of my frailties and I know I have made mistakes along the way. I ask your forgiveness for those failures and trust that all of us might walk into the future with hearts and minds set free by the grace and mercy of Jesus Christ. May God help us let go of disappointments, dissatisfactions and disillusionments. I will miss you! We often speak of the "Fairmont Family" and you have become like family to Connie and me. I do not like to contemplate life without you but, for our mutual benefit, we must say goodbye. Soon you will be welcoming a new Interim Pastor, Rev. David Hoffelt. It is time for Fairmont to hear a new voice and seek a new direction. Likewise, it is time for me to let go and begin a new chapter. Therefore, I will not be officiating at weddings, funerals or attending worship at Fairmont. You need time to welcome David and embrace his ministry and Connie and I need time to figure out this retirement thing. However, please know you will always hold a very special place in our hearts, for you have been our family! Fairmont's future is bright. The future is bright because Rev. Denise Weaver will provide wise leadership and sensitive care. The future is bright because you have recently welcomed Brenda Bene as your new Children's Ministry Coordinator and Colleen Petrello as your new Fairmont Preschool Director. The future is bright because the entire Fairmont staff works well together, is competent in their areas of expertise and they are more than willing to serve. The future is bright because your Session, Trustees and Deacons are all dedicated leaders who exercise their gifts for your benefit. The future is bright because of your active participation in the worship, life and ministry of this vibrant church. Most importantly, the future is bright because God will be with you, guiding and blessing on your journey of faith. I praise God for having had the privilege of being your pastor for 15 years! I also praise God for promising to complete the good work God began ever before I became your pastor. I implore you to remain centered in Jesus Christ and his mission right here in Kettering and throughout the world. My final word is an invitation to come and worship on Sunday, September 9th at the combined 10:00 am service! It seems most fitting that our last gathering will be around the Communion Table of our Lord! Come, let us break bread together.....one last time! Eternally grateful for our journey together,

3705 Far Hills Avenue • Dayton, OH 45429-2599 “Where FAITH Takes Flight!”

Worship and Music at Fair mont Each Sunday we gather to be renewed in God's word and Christ's love as we praise and honor God. Fairmont’s two styles of worship provide alternative ways to worship our great God. Both ways of worshipping have the same purpose...to praise God for who God is and what God has done and to bring spiritual renewal for you. Let us come together and worship! 8:30 Casual Worship Music led by Fairmont's Praise Band 10:30 Traditional Worship Music led by Fairmont's Chancel Choir "Praise the Lord! I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart, in the company of the upright, in the congregation. Great are the works of the Lord, studied by all who delight in them." --Psalm 111:1-2 "I was glad when they said to me, 'Let us go to the house of the Lord!" -- Psalm 122:1 Sunday, September 2 “14th Sunday after Pentecost” Rev. Bob Wade will be preaching from Isaiah 40:27-31 and Matthew 11:28-30 with the sermon title “Come to the Quiet.” On this Labor Day Sunday we will reflect on Jesus' invitation to come and rest. Come, all who are bone tired, weary, and stressed, and accept Jesus' invitation to rest from your labors. There is a place of quiet rest and you will find it at Fairmont. So, come and worship! Sunday, September 9 - Communion Sunday “15th Sunday after Pentecost” 10:00 a.m. Single Service -- This will be Rev. Bob Wade's last Sunday as Pastor of Fairmont. Rev. Bob Wade will be preaching from Deuteronomy 30:15-20 and Joshua 1:1-9 which give instructions and encouragement to the Israelites and to Joshua as they stand at the edge of the Jordan River preparing to cross into the Promised Land. We also stand at the edge of the River Transition and these passages will provide guidance for our crossing into new adventures. Bob's sermon is

titled "New Shoes!" As we come to this point new beginnings, we will gather around the Table of our Lord and be reminded that it is God's presence and love that remains consistent through all the rivers we step into. Bob has invited a number of pastor/friends who have been significant in his 40 years of ministry to participate in this worship service. The Chancel Choir will be back and will be wearing new robes and the Praise Band will also be helping to lead our worship. Following worship all are invited to Fellowship Hall to enjoy a meal and time of celebration for Bob and Connie's ministry over these many years. Sunday, September 16 “16th Sunday after Pentecost” We are pleased that Elder Dennis Piermont, Executive Presbyter of the Miami Valley Presbytery, will be preaching. Dennis will bring an encouraging sermon that will set the stage for Fairmont's future. Sunday, September 23 “17th Sunday after Pentecost” Rev. Denise Weaver will be preaching. Her sermon will be based on Mark 9:30-37. Sunday, September 30 “18th Sunday after Pentecost” Rev. Denise Weaver will be preaching. Her sermon will be based on Psalm 124. World Communion Sunday, October 7 19th Sunday after Pentecost" Rev. David Hoffelt, Fairmont's Interim Pastor, will be preaching for the first time. Come One, Come All!

A Letter of Sincere Gratitude to Mrs. Lillian Henkel

We all wish Bob Wade the best in his retirement. ~ Jean Webster Clerk of Session

Dear Lillian, It is not often that one has the opportunity to give thanks in such an open and public way such as this. Speaking not only as the chairperson of the Worship Team, a current Elder of Session and an active member of Fairmont Presbyterian Church, but perhaps writing this more importantly as a parent herself who would have cherished such a gift, I offer a warm and sincere thank-you for the untold hours of “behind-the-scenes” ministry that you have now completed. Who can ever measure in this lifetime all of the lives that you have touched through your quiet and faithful service of lovingly preparing the handmade, cross-stitched gifts presented to the parents of children baptized here at Fairmont? It is amazing, truly amazing, to learn that you have completed 43 of these over the years! What a remarkable gift of time and talent that you have given to Fairmont! We thank you, Lillian. We thank you most sincerely for giving so generously and so tirelessly of yourself. May you continue to be as blessed as those who have received your lovely gifts. Our gratitude is immeasurable. We thank you for being God’s good and faithful servant! ~ Kimberly Gunlock

B u d g e t & S t e wa r d s h i p HOW ARE WE DOING? We want to keep our members advised of how we are doing financially. So here is a snapshot of our first quarter finances: Below we compare of the percentage of our budgeted income (pledges paid) and expenses for this year and last year: 2012

2011

Income

95%

107%

Expenses

95%

100%

As you can see, this year’s income is down from the budget and down from what happened in 2011. So it would be helpful if all of us would check to make sure we are up to date on our pledges. We are doing well with our expenses mostly because of the mild winter. God is Good!

Session Highlights The Session met on its regular meeting night, the third Tuesday of the month, August 21. There was scripture read, the opening prayer given, sharing of events and experiences, singing of a hymn, approval of the consent agenda and the clerk’s report, staff reports, trustee report, discussion of the upcoming stewardship campaign, reports about the contacts with those in the congregation who for health reasons can no longer attend worship services, items taken care of, discussed and/or approved as needed at regular meetings. Then the tenor of the meeting changed because we had to say good bye and bon voyage to our minister of the past fifteen years as he had just led his last session meeting at our church. Bob had some words of thanks and blessing for the group.

~ Karen Sensel, Elder

Pe r s o n n e l Te a m Introducing New Staff Members Two important staff positions have been filled with the hiring of two very well-qualified employees. Both new employees started midAugust and are fully engaged in their duties. Brenda Bene is the Children’s Ministry Coordinator, succeeding Lisa Shearer. She will oversee the Christian Education program for infants through 6th grade. Brenda has a B.A. in Religious Studies from the College of Mt. St. Joseph. She has also taken classes at Louisville Presbyterian Theological

Seminary as well as continuing education courses. Her most recent experience was as a Program and Event Coordinator at the Kenwood Retirement Community. Her past experience includes four years as Director of Christian Education at Pleasant Ridge Presbyterian Church. Brenda lives in Cincinnati. Coleen Petrello is the Director of Fairmont’s Preschool, succeeding Jenny Fiden. She will be responsible to provide supervision and staff development, as well as teaching daily classes. Coleen graduated from Miami University with a B.S. in Elementary Education. She taught in various elementary schools in the area before and after staring home to raise her four sons, two of whom attended Fairmont Preschool. Most recently, she worked for Sinclair Community College as a college Resource Center Facilitator located at Alter High School, her alma mater. Coleen still lives in her home town of Centerville. Please take the opportunity to welcome Brenda and Coleen to Fairmont. The Session has approved engaging the Rev. Dr. R. David Hoffelt as Interim Pastor (a one-year renewable contract) at a Special Called Session on July 31. Dr. Hoffelt moves here from Madison, Wisconsin beginning his ministry with us October 1. His first Sunday in the pulpit will be October 7th, World Communion Sunday. More information about David, his pastoral ministry from 1974 to the present and his Maine Coon cat, Henry, will be in the October CALL.

Buildings & Grounds PIPING PROJECT UPDATE The piping project is a little behind schedule due to DP & L requesting that we upgrade our service to their current codes. We have 2 services coming into the church that are 240v/3ph, and the new service will be 208v/3ph. Our engineer is checking that this service will be compatible with our Air Conditioning and other church equipment. Along with this change we will have to replace our main electric panel, since it is

original equipment from 1946. With all this going on, we are still planning on going out for bid this fall, and hope to start construction next spring, after the winter heating season. We are asking for everyone’s patience, and your support. If you have any questions, please contact Paul Fiden or Dave Keenan.

E va n g e l i s m & M e m b e r C a r e Te a m Do you know how The WINGS Art Gallery works? We have 2-3 volunteers who work on the Wings Art Gallery shows. Each show requires quite a bit of preparation. We request that the pictures be submitted with some kind of hangar on them, preferably a wire. For those that are submitted with a ring hangar or saw toothed hangar, we have to sit and thread a wire through to make a wire hangar. Our picture rods will not work with most other styles of hangar. This is tedious and if there are many pictures without wires, it makes the set up very time consuming. The volunteers also make cards for each picture telling about the picture and the artist. Finally the pictures are hung. At the end of the show, the pictures have to be removed, the wires taken off and the cards taken down. There are set shows and in-progress shows. Our present Fairmont Family Pets show is an inprogress show. Items are added as they come in. This takes more volunteer time to set up but it is so much fun to see the show take shape and the new additions come in. Is it worth it? Absolutely! We have heard from so many members who love getting to know fellow members through their art, their photographs and their personal style. The art shows are always fun. Is there any way members can help? Yes! We need help coming up with ideas for shows, help putting up and taking down shows, artwork collections for the shows, and of course, encouragement is always welcome. Let your creative side take WINGS!

Blood Drive Volunteers Wanted We are looking for volunteers for the last two blood drives of the year - Sept. 27 & Dec. 6. The times are all 2:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m. on Thursdays. You can choose to help for an hour or more. The work is very easy. There is decorating, setting up the food, sitting with the donors and visiting (greeter), and cleaning up. Since we use almost all disposable items, clean up is easy as well. We will probably do something special at the December drive. If you can help, please contact the church office.

Fa i r m o n t M i s s i o n s Fifth Sunday Offering - September 30 Our 5th Sunday offering for September will be for the Danny Shafer Memorial Fund. This fund was setup for the son of Kathy and Pete Shafer, sister of Becky (Shafer) Sennet, and grandson of Harry and Barb Bradbury. While this too early passing of this sweet child took place many years ago, his legacy has been felt by many children who have been able to attend our Fairmont Pre-School, whose families could not have afforded it otherwise. There have been many gifts to this fund over the years in Danny’s memory, but it could use a boost at this time. Please consider this worthwhile mission that our church provides for the kids in our neighborhood. This collection will occur on Sunday, September 30. As you always do, please give generously. Thank you! ~ Your Mission Team

C h r i s t i a n Fo r m a t i o n Te a m Fall Sunday Schedule for Children 9:30 – 10:00 Children’s Choir with Peggy Van Deursen, Room 127 (in the Sunday School Wing) 10-10:25

Multi-Age Class with Carol Bussey, Room 134 (across from Children’s Choir)

During 10:30 Worship we will still have classes for Pre-K (age 4) -Kindergarten, 1st-3rd Grade, and 4th-6th grade after the Children’s Talk EXCEPT on the 3rd Sunday of the Month which is Family Worship, a time for all kids and teachers to worship with their families. The Toddler Class for 2-3 year olds taught by Kathryn Cox is available from 9:30-11:30 (when the second service is finished.) Of course, Amanda Matson and the nursery is also available for our littlest blessings too! All of our classes will be using a Lectionary-based curriculum so when the pastors preach using the lectionary, the children will learn about the same passages. We hope this facilitates discussion

within the family long after the service is over! We are still seeking the right teachers for our children’s classes, so if you feel called to minister to our children through Sunday School, please contact Brenda Bene. We are looking for people willing to teach once a month (or more if able!) Thank you, Lisa Shearer Thank you Fairmont Family!! It has been such a pleasure and blessing to serve as your Interim Children’s Ministry Coordinator for the past year. I am grateful that God was able to use me to help lay a foundation for Brenda’s ministry! She has a wonderful heart, a lot of great ideas and experiences, a desire to know you, and the gifts we need to continue moving our Children’s Ministry in the right direction. I pray that you will introduce yourself, welcome her to Fairmont, and volunteer to be a part of this ministry which is so vital to the younger families of our congregation. At every Baptism I am deeply moved by the conviction of our congregation to welcome God’s children into our church. I hope we will continue to honor our vows as we help this ministry and the faith of our children grow. My family and I will still be here at Fairmont and I hope you will join me in praying for Brenda’s ministry, supporting her events with our attendance, and volunteering to help her as needed. Your help is not only a gift to her, but it is also a gift to our young families. I am also sure you will be surprised by the blessings you receive through your giving! With deep appreciation, Lisa Shearer Revised Prayer Chain Fairmont’s Prayer Chain has been revised and boasts an additional fourteen members! Fairmont now has 28 “pray-ers” participating in this prayer ministry! An e-mail prayer chain has been added to the existing phone call prayer chain thanks to a wonderful idea from Robin Stevens. If you have a prayer request please contact Kit Mackenzie who will then begin both the phone and e-mail

MEMORY VERSE for the month: For the word of the LORD is right and true; he is faithful in all he does. The LORD loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love. ~ Psalm 33:4-5

A small, wooden flute, an empty, hollow reed, rests in her silent hand. it awaits the breath of one who creates song through its open form. my often-empty life rests in the hand of God; like the hollowed flute, it yearns for the melody which only Breath can give. the small, wooden flute and I, we need the one who breathes, we await one who makes melody. and the one whose touch creates, awaits our empty, ordinary forms, so that the song-starved world may be fed with golden melodies. I shall sing to Yahweh all my life, Make music for my God . . . Psalm 104:33
