3 PASTOR JIM S MESSAGE Interesting how fast time flies! This past June marked our one-year anniversary at Fairlawn Lutheran. I remember those first few months of feeling like spinning in circles as I tried to get a grasp on activities and ministries, and all the people's names to learn! Well, Claire and I are still learning about Fairlawn and all that God has graced her with, and will be for many years to come. When we first visited, over 2 years ago, one impression we came away with was the genuine love and service of the saints. That impression has only deepened in the past year. You all are some of the most loving people we have ever met. And my, how you love to serve! I am still amazed that when a need or opportunity arises, hands go up and the work gets done. Now that we are "grounded" a bit more, I am greatly looking forward to year 2. For instance, we are nearing completion of our Vision process that will propel us for years to come. Also, new staff will be called here over the coming months. As we move into year 3, and 4, and beyond, what else does God have in store for us? What has He planned that we have yet to discover? I don't know the answers to those questions. But I do know that God loves us and faithfully leads us. I also know that His blessing rests on you, His saints, as you go about His work. We are so excited to be walking this path with you. And we do so with complete confidence in our Savior and great joy in working by your side. Peace in Christ, Pastor Jim and Claire James, Jessica, Lauren and Bennett Duehning Hello from the Duehning family: James, Jessica, Bennett, and Lauren! James was raised Lutheran in Texas. Jessica grew up Presbyterian in Missouri. After college we moved to Kansas City, Missouri where we bounced around a few churches, but never found a great place to raise our family. After moving to Fairlawn for James job in June 2014, we came to Fairlawn Lutheran because it was close to how he was raised in Texas and close to our home. During our first visit, which also happened to be Pastor Gau s first day, Pastor Gau asked Bennett to come see his train collection. We were also astounded by the openness of all the members in welcoming us into their family. Also, during our first visit we met Karla and talked about our interest in enrolling Bennett into the preschool program. And within a few weeks Jessica was recruited to help with VBS. We were hooked on Fairlawn Lutheran Church and School due to their family friendly atmosphere and the way the church family welcomed us to join them in worship. We look forward to raising our family with you and growing our faith P A G E 3 Bruce and Kristina Hollingsworth Bruce and Kris have been married for 37 year. They have 2 boys, Allen 34 who lives in Atlanta, GA and Brian 32 who lives in Parma, OH. Bruce has worked for J. D. Williamson Construction Company for 35 years. Kris currently is a "nanny" 3 days a week to twin 3 1/2 year olds, Anna and Joey. Bruce is originally from Cuyahoga Falls and Kris is originally from Fairlawn. Vince LaPorte & Jennifer Meier Vince I was born in the Bronx, New York and moved to Westchester County, New York, as a teenager. I am the oldest of three children.

8 FINANCIAL ACTIVITY REPORT FINANCIAL UPDATE Month of June, 2015 OPERATIONS Income $55,380 Cash Expenses $49,249 Net Cash Income / (Loss) $6,131 Year-to-Date Income $356,738 Cash Expenses $358,168 Net Cash Income / (Loss) ($1,430) STEWARDSHIP MONTHLY THOUGHT Business is the new black. It s stylish. We spend an inordinate amount of time comparing how busy we are with everyone else. We compare our schedules, our kid s schedules, how productive we are and how much we have because of it to everyone around us. And if we don t do or have what the next guy does or has, we just get busier and produce more so that we can. This consumes our conversations and thoughts. And this should give us pause: Who is consuming whom, here? Are we the consumer or are we those consumed? It s no accident that our adversary the devil is described as a lion prowling around seeking to devour us, to consume us. He gives us the liturgy of this world, the liturgy of productivity and consumption. For if he can keep us busy in much-ness and many-ness, he can be satisfied. And this is why the Lord, after finishing all His work of creation, rested on the seventh day. This is why He established the Sabbath day to give His people rest from all their work. As they rested, He continued to work for them, to satisfy them, to fill them with His gifts food from heaven by His Word and Promise. That day came when from our Lord's cross and in His death, He proclaimed, "It is finished" (John 19:30). And so His work of redemption was complete. And so His body rested in the tomb, the belly of the earth. Though He is the Lord God who always works, yet as the Lord rested on the original Sabbath, now Jesus kept the Sabbath by resting in the tomb and rising from the dead to live forever. For this is why He came. This is why He became man: to draw all to Himself so that He could give rest and refreshment to the weary and the heavy laden. The Sabbath is a gift, not a burden. It is a gift of time free from the liturgy of this world, the liturgy of productivity and consumption. Sabbath is time for rest and refreshment, a time free from anxiety to enjoy the gifts God gives, all of them His Word, His Promises, His Sacraments, His creation, everything. It is a foretaste of the rest we shall enjoy in heaven. Sadly for many of us rest has become work. It s become drudgery. We long for it but we aren t able to do it because there s so much to be done and so little time to do it. But really what s the rush? Why are we so hurried and harried? Have we forgotten that Jesus is raised from the dead and lives forever? Sabbath is God's gift of time free from all of the anxiety and hurry of this world so that we can rest, be refreshed by the gifts God gives. Society won't do it for us. They are addicted to the liturgy of productivity and consumption. Though we are in the world, we are not of it. We are the people of God, His own children by water and Word, joined to the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Jesus lives. And so shall we. So rest in the promise of our Savior that sin, death, and time have not hold on you because Jesus is raised from the dead. Jesus lives. And so shall we, forever. Living Each Day as a Steward!

9 INTENTIONALLY SAYIING THANK YOU! Fairlawn Lutheran Brown Baggers Vi Bahm Fred Pinter Ann Congeni Kathryn Pinter Chuck Eckberg Lisa Stouffer LaDonn Eckberg Eileen Wahl Judy Johnson George Wahl Shirley Juhasz Phyllis Woodward Jim Kroeger Woody Woodward Jacquie Kyle Mary Yoder Judye Matson The Brown Baggers were founded by Kathryn Pinter in March of Kathryn will celebrate her 93rd. birthday in August and is still among the packers each month. The Brown Baggers assemble at least 100 brown bag lunches the fourth Wednesday of each month at 1:00 p.m. They are delivered to the St. Bernard Hunger Center in downtown Akron for distribution the next day. Each lunch contains a meat and cheese sandwich, fruit, and dessert. The Brown Baggers rely on donations from individual congregation members that are recorded on their church statements as well as an occasional contribution from outside the church. Last, but not least, the money collected in the plastic jug by the mailboxes is used toward expenses. The group has been self-sustaining so far, having never been subsidized by the church budget. FLCS Fireworks Social Thank you to Erin Sloan and Jeri Montalto and their amazing team for a phenomenal community event! Many people experienced the community outreach of Fairlawn Lutheran Church and School. UPDATE ON CRUM, WV MISSION TRIP. Monday, July 20, Barbara Beck and Marilyn Horsey, pictured to the right, are packing children's books donated by Mr. & Mrs. Richard Kotick. These books were mailed by David Sears to Sister Therese Carew at the Christian HELP Thrift Store in Kermit, WV for use and distribution to children in that locale. Such donations are Always welcomed by Sister Therese and her staff. P A G E 9

August is vacation time for some people so please help! Questions or need a ride: Jacquie Kyle, , Presentation by Charlene Kish, CEO, Concordia at Sumner Sunday, August 23 from am Fellowship Hall Last November the Church Council of FLCS voted to become a supporting congregation of Concordia of Ohio who operates the caregiving Lutheran facility, also known as Concordia at Sumner, located on Ridgewood Road in Copley. Both FLCS, and Concordia at Sumner, wish to develop a mutually beneficial relationship. Concordia is able to enlighten our congregation s members on later-life issues which may be valuable for themselves or a family member. On the other hand, many of our church and school members can share the love of Christ with the residents at Concordia of Sumner through programs or even one-on-one sharing. This presentation, to be introduced by Chaplain Charlie Lentner, will introduce us to Concordia at Sumner and provide a background on options for elderly living. It will hopefully be the beginning of an ongoing relationship between FLCS and Concordia at Sumner. If you are unable to attend but would like information, contact Grace Goettler at or P A G E 1 0
