  • Bridges to Batey 105

    A Mission partnership

    in the Dominican Republic

    We have been engaged in ministry with the people of the Dominican Republic for thirty years, working primarily through El Hospital General El Buen Samaritano. In 2014 we committed to a twenty-five year partnership with Batey 105, a local village in the heart of the sugarcane fields.  As we work with the people of Batey 105, we are focusing on relationship building and faith sharing, improving life in the Batey, promoting justice, and improving social and economic mobility. To learn more about this ministry, visit its Facebook page. Contact David Bosler

  • Serve Sundays

    After three successful Serve Sundays, where in the place of worship members and friends of the church served our community, the Serve Council is looking to expand this ministry. If you would like to partipcate in the planning or implementation of the next Serve Sunday, let us know. Contact Pastor Derek

  • Greater Cleveland Congregations

    Greater Cleveland Congregations (GCC) is a non-partisan coalition of faith communities and partner organizations in Cuyahoga County working together to build power for social justice. GCC unites people across lines of race, class, religion, and geography to promote public, private and civic sector actions which strengthen and improve the quality of life of our neighborhoods. Fairmount is a founding member of this coalition and has been an active participant. For more information visit The GCC Task Force meets every other Sunday at 9:45 a.m. All are welcome. Contact Ulrich Hopfer.

  • Refugee Task Force

    A year ago, in response to the growing international refugee crisis, we made a commitment to support the effective resettlement of local international refugees.  Our ministry continues to grow. Volunteers are always needed. Contact Pastor Derek.


Serve Council feels called by God to bring focus to our mission priorities so we can bring real and lasting change both to our church community and to the world where we are called to serve. Ultimately, we hope to concentrate our time, talents, resources and passions so that our efforts are deep, meaningful and transformative.  

To succeed, we need input from our church community. We want to know what one thing you would change to make life better in our Greater Cleveland community. We want to know what specific issue keeps you up at night – as a parent, as a partner, as an individual, as a member of the Greater Cleveland community. We want to hear your hopes for the mission of Fairmount as we move forward.  

If you are willing to help by sharing your responses to these questions, we will arrange for a Fairmount volunteer who has participated in Listening Training to meet with you, either one-on-one or in a small group, at a time and place convenient for you. Thank you!

Hang tight while we prepare your form...
