  • The overall feedback we have received has supported moving forward with additional reopening steps. As we bring more people together, and as more is learned about the coronavirus, it is important that masks are always worn while singing. Masks should also be worn in the dining room, and any time 6 ft. social distancing cannot be maintained. A streamlined church lunch will be available following state restaurant safety guidelines. Details of the plan will be sent via email.

  • There is a full-time maintenance position available at Fairview Haven. For more information, please contact Bro. Jeremiah Rinkenberger.

  • The reopening committee feels that given the overall state and regional situation, the door is open to cautious steps forward at church, beginning October 4. A proposed approach is to invite the whole congregation to attend morning services, and alternate afternoon attendance using our current groups. Due to increased numbers, everyone should wear masks while singing in the morning. All children could attend Sunday School every Sunday morning. We are working on lunch plans for those staying for the afternoon service.

  • As the cases of COVID increase in our community, please be aware that if we are exposed to a positive case of COVID, we will be asked to quarantine. The longer and closer we are to someone else, the greater our risk that we could need to quarantine. To minimize our risk, please fellowship outside when feasible and maintain social distancing as much as possible in church and outside.

  • A men's campout is planned for Friday, Sept. 18 at Bro. Jeremy & Sis. Shara Leman's lake. Men and boys of all ages are welcome to come for a 6 pm dinner and/or overnight.
