Fairmount Presbyterian hosts Serve Sunday

Assembling braille books.

On Sunday, April 29, members and friends of Fairmount Presbyterian Church headed out to serve the community and participate in educational experiences that raised awareness of issues faced by our community. Participants prepared braille books for preschoolers who attend the Cleveland Sight Center; cleaned up the woods around Dugway Brook; prepared care packages for students away at college; sang hymns with the residents of Judson Park; and learned about the refugee situation locally, nationally and worldwide. Additionally, a group participated in a poverty simulation to better understand the decisions, fears and frustrations facing families living in poverty. There are plans to hold another Serve Sunday later in 2018. Check the church’s website, www.fppcle.org for future Serve Sunday details.
