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.  

On Sunday, September 24 Sunday morning Christian Formation programs for kids and their parents begins. Our programs that take place at 9:30 AM will continue using our Celebrate Wonder program. The fall course of study will be focused on Genesis, beginning with Creation all the way to Jacob’s Ladder!  Our Children’s Church program (10:30 AM – 12 PM) will continue as well.  The course of study in Children’s Church aligns with the worship theme of the day.

Celebrate Wonder (9:30 - 10:30 AM):

  • Primary Group (9:30-10:30AM):  This group is for 0-4 years olds and will take place in the Room 111.
  • Elementary Group (9:30-10:30AM): This group is for kids who are in Kindergarten - 5th Grade and will be in Room 309.

Children’s Church (10:30AM-12:00PM):

  • Children ages 0-1st grade are invited to be dropped off in Room 112 prior to the 11:00AM service. Some children will be escorted into the worship service for Children’s Sharing Time.
  • Children 2nd – 5th grade are invited to join their parents in worship through Children’s Sharing Time.  After Children’s Sharing, they can be escorted to Room 112 for a lesson and playtime.

Worship is the most important thing that we do as a community of faith.  All children are always welcome to be a part of worship.  Families should do what works best for their family.  Our children are all different. Children are invited to be in worship for 5 minutes or 60 minutes, whatever works for them. 

Small Group for Adults (9:30-10:30AM):  

A study class for adults takes place in Room 109 on Sunday mornings.  The group does topical studies and Bible studies.  This small group uses a drop in model for parent’s convenience.  Just come when you can!  If you would like to be added to the email list for this group, or if you have more questions, please contact Christian.
