Children are a Gift from God

We are here for your children all year. Below are ways your children can become more involved in their relationship with God, peers and this congregation. For more information, contact Jane Ciorba, Director of Children’s Ministries.

Sunday School for Children

We offer a new and exciting discovery format for children first through sixth grade. This fun-packed hour includes contemporary worship music, videos and PowerPoints, games, crafts and refreshments. Children have fun learning and growing in faith while building friendships. Older kids have opportunities to learn technology, leadership, and mentoring skills. A great place to grow in faith! Children ages preschool to kindergarten meet in Room 105 and children in grades 1-6 meet in Room 306.



Children love diversity, in addition to our Sunday school program we have a wide variety of excellent music programs for children 6th grade and younger. We are fortunate to have both singing choirs and handbell instruction. Learn more…

Vacation Bible School

Fairfax UMC invites you To Mars and Beyond, our new evening Vacation Bible School. Children ages 3–12 years (those who have completed a 3-year-old preschool program to those who have completed 6th grade) should come and experience an exciting week of Vacation Bible School and go beyond in Faith, Boldness, Kindness, Thankfulness, and Hope! The adventure offers music, interactive Bible stories, crafts, snacks, and much more! Friday evening is a family pizza party with the children highlighting the events of the week.
Special hands-on Mission Work is in store for those who have completed 5th and 6th grades. Youth completing grades 7–12 are invited to be part of the VBS staff.
Adult leaders are needed! To share your faith in God with eager children, please contact Jane Ciorba. All participants should register online.
