FAIRVIEW'S UNTOLD STORIES

This will be the second book in C. Ruth Taylor's Untold Stories book series. This edition shares the amazing journeys and transformational stories (testimonies) of members of the Fairview Open Bible Church. The book will become a tool for ministry - to give visibility to the vision of FOBC, help to raise funds for the ministry, and declare the goodness of God in the lives of His people; so that people now and generations not yet born can praise the Lord (Psa. 102:18).

VISIBILITY FOR THE VISION
FAIRVIEW'S UNTOLD STORIES BOOK - A 40th ANNIVERSARY & COMMUNITY ENRICHMENT PROJECT

In August 2024, Fairview Open Bible Church will celebrate 40 years. The number 40 is significant. It's the end of a generation and the start of something new. This book chronicles the impact of the last 40 years and will serve as both a memorial and motivation for the next generation to run with the vision (Hab. 2:2-3).

MINISTRY LEADERS AND DEVOTED WORKERS AT FOBC

The commitment to service at FOBC is praiseworthy. Why are both young and older folks so commitment to church attendance and involvement in church activities? In an age where many have left the Church, prior to the COVID-19 Pandemic and increasingly after, this story must be told to give hope to others.
