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 have Sunday school classes on Sunday mornings at 9:30am for each specific age group using curriculum developed by the Methodist publishing house, Cokesbury. Childcare for infants and toddlers is provided during the 9:30 and 11:15am services. Gathering *139  at 11:15am offers Christian Education for children ages 4-4th grade. Participants attend worship with their parents and leave with their teaches later in the service. Parents pick up their children after the service in Room 303.



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.
