How to Get Involved

 

The ministry has two major focuses for 2015: the building project and the music programming for the week of the fair.

For 5 years, we have been praying that the Lord would make a way to construct a permanent “open air” building that will accommodate Christian music at the county fair each year held over Labor Day. We had an anonymous donor provide monies toward this project to begin the building. We have prayed, promoted, hosted fundraisers, and sought community and church support in raising more funds so we could move forward. The general fair board has approved the building project, assigned a location for it and has given the permission for the building. We are moving full speed ahead with the project. We still need additional funds to finish the building.

There are several ways to participate with the Fulton County Christian Music Ministries as we carry out God’s plan for sharing the Gospel. Here are ways people can assist in all aspects of the ministry:

  • Above all else, pray for the board and ministry. We desire to serve the Lord where He leads.
  • Attend a board meeting to listen and better understand the ministry. Make suggestions for the growth of the ministry. Become a board member to be a part of bringing Christian music to our community.
  • Inform us of musicians (worship teams, musical groups, families or individuals) to give of their time and talents to minister during the county fair. The ministry supplies the sound system and technician.
  • Provide hosts that might be greeters, hand out water and fans, serve as emcee and pray for needs as they arise. The Lord may impress upon each person how to serve so His ministry would be carried out.
  • Make a tax deductible contribution for the building project payable to the Fulton County Fair Foundation with a note that your contribution is for the Gospel Building and mail to:

         Laurinda Figley, Treasurer
         142 W. Morenci St.
         Lyons, Ohio 43533

  • Donate money to pay for mailings, advertising, printing costs and the cost of our website: fccmm.org. Financial help is needed throughout the year to acquire musicians for the highlighted concerts with national music groups. We have financial statements and the projected budget available upon request.
  • Underwrite a day for $250. Each church that supports is recognized on the website, the printed schedule and on a board in front of the Christian Music Ministries Building.
  • Contribute to freewill offerings taken, especially on Sunday, to give financial support.
  • Attend the concerts and be encouraged in your relationship with the Lord.

May all who are involved find the blessings of the Lord to be present in their lives.
