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 Tanya Fuller, Director of Children’s Ministries.


Grow Curriculum

The Grow Curriculum was created by kid’s pastors with a goal to help kids grow spiritually by teaching and discussing Scripture in developmentally appropriate ways.  The Grow scope and sequence will take kids through every significant Bible story in three years. We spend an equal amount of time in the Old and New Testaments.

Kids’ Ministry Events

Anchored VBS — Cancelled

Fairfax United Methodist Church is disappointed to announce that FUMC is cancelling Vacation Bible School. Due to last-minute ministry changes, the church does not have the leadership needed to continue with the event as planned. The church regrets any inconvenience this causes and hope to see more great Kids Ministry programming resume soon.


Other Events

Grow Kids Ministry hosts a variety of in-person gatherings throughout each month. Each of these events includes activities, crafts, and lessons that help kids have fun, build friendships, and learn more about God. Learn more about and register for upcoming events on our Kids Ministry Event page!


Grow Kids Curriculum Videos

Though FUMC is still preparing to restart our in-person Sunday morning kids’ programming, we know that kids still need and want regular, fun Scriptural lessons meant just for them. We’ve made the Grow Kids curriculum videos available for parents to fulfill that need. Two months of videos with variations for preschool and elementary-age kids are made available at a time for your kids to enjoy.

For Parents

As caregivers sometimes, it may be tricky to find ways to help kids spend time with God on their own, in an age-appropriate way. Here are few ways:

  • Use a good Bible translation
  • Teach kids ways to pray throughout the day
  • Play kid-friendly worship songs
