CHILDRENS MINISTRY

At Fairview Baptist Church, our vistion for the Children's Ministry is no different than that of the church.


"WE EXIST TO MAKE DISCIPLES OF JESUS CHRIST."


As such, our core values for our Children's Ministry simply model those that we set forth for all disciples of Jesus Christ at Fairview. We desire to be a church that exhibits Gospel Transformation, Loving Community, and Missional Living as described in Acts 2:41-47. This greatly impacts the way we approach our Children's Ministry efforts.


GOSPEL TRANSFORMATION: Because we are a church family that focuses on heart transformation and character growth by applying the gospel to all of life, we avoid heaping behavioral modification on the young souls in our care. Rather, we seek to put Christ and His gospel at the center of everything we do in Children's Ministry at Fairview.


LOVING COMMUNITY: Because we are a church family that loves one another in a way that reflects the power of the gospel, we hope to lovingly partner with parents in bringing up a generation of culture-shaping children, rather than children who are shaped by culture.


MISSIONAL LIVING: Because we are a church family that defines our lives by mission in all that we do both here and worldwide, we aspire to see a Children's Ministry that is Kingdom-expanding, and not simply ministry-building.

CHILDREN'S LIFE GROUPS

SUNDAY MORNINGS AT 9AM

 

On Sunday mornings, our kid’s Life Group classes (babies through 5th grade) use The Gospel Project curriculum. The Gospel Project is a Christ-centered Bible study that moves from Genesis to Revelation, showing our kids how the good news of the gospel is central to the entire Bible.

KIDS CARE 

DURING WORSHIP SERVICE

 

During the worship service, Kids Care provides a continued time of learning from babies through four years old. We encourage families to worship together in our services. The kids participate in singing, prayer, and giving with their families. 

EQUIP Kids

WEDNESDAY EVENINGS 6:30 PM

 

Equip Preschool classes (3-5 year old) incorporate music, Bible lessons and missions activities into their evening. Children learn about missionaries here in the US and around the world. They engage in hands-on activities as they learn how missionaries serve and reach different people groups.

 

Equip Kids classes (1st-5th grade) learn about the Spiritual Disciplines as we seek to teach kids how to internalize their faith and connect it practically to everyday life. Children also learn how Christians share the gospel here in the US and around the world. We want to make disciples of Jesus who live on mission. We incorporate special missions projects, guest missionary speakers and other hands-on crafts and activities.
