Faith That Works

"This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord’s people

but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God." 2 Corinthians 9:12 (NIV)


Here's where the rubber meets the road.

It's all about doing; helping; being a living part of the body of Christ.

It's about ministry; serving; and strengthening each other.

And it's about faith in action, because "Faith without works is dead."


The ministry activities mentioned below are just a few ways

we at Fairmont like to render our reasonable service to God.

We invite you to become an active member of the body of Christ

through one of these ministries.

  • Missions

    Involvement by Church at Large

    In Habakkuk 1:5, the Lord says, “Look among the nations! Observe! Be astonished! Wonder! Because I am doing something in your day, you would not believe if you were told.”  

    God is always working to extend the message of His salvation to the ends of the earth. And we at Fairmont love to partner with God in sharing the Gospel message through mission trips in foreign countries, in the United States, and in our own backyard.

  • Evangelistic Outreach Events

    Pastor Tracy Baerg, Coordinator

    The public presentation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is a powerful tool that God still uses to draw His children back to Him. We enjoy sharing the Good News through periodic evangelistic series.

  • Women's Ministries

    Donna Tungesvik, Coordinator

    Women’s Ministry’s mission is to bring our ladies, of all ages, together to bond and care about each other. We provide events to enrich lives spiritually and practically, and to give opportunities to invite friends and neighbors. Our team is also involved in several outreach and mission projects, internationally as well as in our local community.

  • Men's Ministries

    Bill Saunders, Coordinator

    Men are in need of some "guy time" every now and then, so the Men's Ministries group joins together every so often to bond over cars, sports, and other manly things. But most importantly, we love to connect with God.

  • Spanish Ministries

    Bernardo Mata, Coordinator

    Fairmont Adventist church has a growing ministry to Spanish speakers. What began a few years ago as a few individuals has become one of our largest Sabbath School groups. With God's direction, we look forward to reaching more people with la noticia buena in the near future.

  • Health Ministries

    Claire Lear, Coordinator

    We at Fairmont believe that God not only wants what is best for us spiritually, but physically as well. In fact, we believe that the two are intimately connected: our physical health plays a large role in our spiritual development. That is why we not only educate and encourage others in spiritual matters, but we work to help them improve their physical health too.

  • Community Development

    Joshua Lewis, Coordinator

    We love our surrounding community, they're our neighbors afterall. So, we do our best to truly love them as Jesus asked us to. Whether that means dropping by to have prayer, to drop off reading material, to share a meal, to have Bible studies, or to just talk about life, we enjoy every minute of it.

  • Prayer Ministries

    Cathy Schmidt, Coordinator

    We at Fairmont believe that prayer is the means by which we are connected to the almighty power of God. Please join us in the mothers' room at 9 AM as we pray before the church services begin. We lift up our pastors, elders, decons, deconesses, Sabbath School teachers, greeters, our church family and the requests of our families and friends. Click here to submit a prayer request.

  • Hospitality Ministries

    Rick & Kathy Schlenker, Coordinators

    The members at Fairmont love to visit with each other, and we love even more to make new friends. What better way to celebrate being a church family and getting to know visitors than over some snacks and drinks? Every Sabbath, we carve out 15 minutes to do just that.

  • Drama

    David Smith, Coordinator

    Christian drama is a powerful tool that God uses to teach and move the hearts of His children in ways not possible by music or sermons alone. We have around four "major" performances per year - Easter, Fourth of July, Pioneer Day, and Christmas.

  • Family Life

    Multiple Leaders

    Part of being a member of Fairmont, is becoming a member of our family. Because we are a family, not only do we learn about God together, we eat together, we go on adventures together, and we have fun together. Our Family Life ministry is active in planning all kinds of social events, from hikes to amusement parks, to game nights, to movies and popcorn. Every member of our family is welcome to these events - the more the merrier!

  • Highway Clean-Up


    We sponsor one mile of Highway 12 - west of Lower Sacramento Road. Four to six times a year you can find a group of members along our stretch of road doing our clean-up job. We are proud to provide this service to show our commitment ot the community of Lodi. Come join us and enjoy 1-2 hours of morning exercise, camaraderie with other church members, and clean up our community. 

  • Choir

    Bob Hunter, Director

    We enjoy praising God through music, and one of the ways we do that is with our church choir.


    "O come, let us sing unto the Lord: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms." Psalm 95:1-2 KJV

  • Audio-Visual Ministry

    Arne Romstad and Steve Griffin, Chairmen

    We record both video and audio of every service, so that those who are unable to attend might recieve a blessing as well. We also make CDs and DVDs available for those who are unable to stream the services through our website.

  • Pathfinder Club

    Pathfinders are a worldwide organization of young people sponsored by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Our local chapter stays busy with lots of activities like bike outings, rock climbing, nature walks, and more! To lean more about our local Pathfinder club click here or the logo at the left.
