Children

 

Fairlington United Methodist Church loves children and their families.  And, we offer a family friendly environment and a full range of programs that will meet children’s developmental needs from infancy to high school.  

Sunday School for Children

Sunday School takes place from 9:30-10:30 a.m. each Sunday and offers the opportunity for children to become grounded in the stories of the Christian faith. A team of two teachers leads each class, fostering the development of a strong faith-based relationship between the teacher and student that provides the children a safe, warm, and welcoming environment.

The Nursery is available for children from birth to age 2.

Two year olds may attend Sunday School beginning the Sunday after their 2nd birthday and all other children are placed in classes according to their dates of birth following the guidelines of the Virginia Public Schools, i.e. they must be 3, 4, or 5 by September 30.

Classes meet as follows:

2 year olds – Blue Room (Room 211)

3 year olds – Yellow Room (Room 210)

4 year olds – Green Room (Room 212)

Kindergarten – Red Room (Room 213)

1st thru 5th Grade - Rooms 309 through 314. Classrooms rotate based on the learning experience of the week. Assignments are posted each week on a board at the end of the hallway.  



Our Volunteers:  All programs for children and youth are led by trained, loving adults dedicated to sharing their faith with our children.  These adults also agree to uphold our Child Protection Policy.  Our Child Protection Policy is a comprehensive document outlining the directives in place for protecting our children.  All volunteers are required to have a full Background Check completed by a third party.  Fairlington UMC is also a participant in the Safe Sanctuaries program, the official child safety program of the United Methodist Church.
