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.  

Summer Online Bible Sessions

God Did What?

Online Summer Sessions, Wednesdays from 10 to 10:30am through August

The purpose of these sessions will be to give the children an opportunity to connect with one another and to learn about the Bible! .This series will take place over 6 weeks, and we will be focusing on the Creation story found in Genesis. While the series is connected thematically, you can still participate even if you can’t come every week. Your child will have a positive experience if they come to one or six sessions.

We will tell jokes, check in with each other, sing music with Ms. Louise, and learn about God’s Creation from Pastor Christian and Ms. Tracy. We look forward to seeing you! Contact Pastor Christian White for the zoom coordinates. christian@fairlingtonumc.org

Sunday School in church will take place from 9:30-10:30 a.m. as soon as it is safe.  In the meantime we will continue to offer online opportunities for children to become grounded in the stories of the Christian faith. Even online, a team of two teachers leads each class, fostering the development of a strong faith-based relationship between the teachers and students that provides the children a safe, warm, and welcoming environment.


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.
