We love kids in church! With intentional milestone ministries to help children understand their faith and worship, service projects to deepen their empathy and compassion, and faith development opportunities; children’s ministry is holistic and comprehensive. We care about the whole child, from kids to families. Throughout the year, there are opportunities for families to worship and serve together. All of our volunteers working with children are screened as part of our Safe Sanctuary policy. If you are interested in learning more about children’s ministry at Fairmount Avenue UMC, please contact our church office or Director of Children, Youth and Family Ministries, Mike Kelley.
Sunday School – Sunday school is offered September – May, 9:00 – 9:45am for children ages 3 and up. With classes tailored to each developmental stage, your children are well cared for and will love being at church!
Wonderful Wednesdayers – Wednesdays evenings are meant to be a refreshing for all ages. Our children in grades K-6 play games, build friendships, deepen their faith, and engage in service opportunities every Wednesday from 6:15-7:30. All are welcome!
Faith Milestones – The Faith Milestones program is meant to intentionally set aside time at key developmental stages for our young people to receive instruction and celebrate their awakening understanding of worship.
Summer Kids– Summers at Fairmount have varied over the years, with camp, learning, and fun!
Nursery Care – It is important to us that parents feel good about participating in every part of church life. From Sunday worship, Wednesday programs, and to regular committee meetings, nursery care is provided for children of all ages. Our Nursery Director is Debbie Salinas, who LOVES to share God’s love your children!
Children’s Choirs – We LOVE kids in worship! Many of our children choose to participate in the Joyful Ringers children bell choir or the Children’s Vocal Choir. Both lead regularly in Sunday worship and meet weekly. Joyful Ringers are for students in 4-6 grade and meet Wednesdays from 5:15-5:45. The Children’s Vocal Choir meets Sundays after Sunday school from 9:45-10:15 and is open to all children 1-6 grade.
