Children's Ministries at Fairmont

Fairmont values our young members and seeks to help guide them into lifelong relationship with God. We offer a variety of formational and fun programs for our members of all ages!

Children’s Bulletins and Children’s Church at Home

This Fall, we re-started Children’s Church...At Home! Until we can gather again for Children’s Church, children’s ministry volunteers are creating a kit full of crafts, short devotions, or activities centered around that month’s themes in worship. October’s bag centered around Generosity, November’s around Gratitude, and December’s about Advent...and Christmas Karaoke! If you would like a children’s church at home kit to pick up or children’s bulletins emailed to you, contact the church office at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Children in Worship

Children of all ages are always welcome in our worship services! Children’s bulletins are available from a greeter or usher, and children’s worship materials are located on a cart to the right of the Sanctuary. Every Sunday morning during worship, a special moment for children is offered by a pastor or other adult leader. (Laughter and wiggles are welcome!)

Children and youth serve as worship leaders in our service, as both acolytes who bring the light of Christ into the service and Bible-bearers who bring the Bible into worship. Acolytes and Bible-bearers are currently paused due to COVID-19. We look forward to beginning again in early 2022.

Nursery Care

During morning worship, infants and children up to age four are cared for by caring and trained nursery workers and volunteers. Nursery care is currently paused due to COVID-19. We look forward to restarting nursery care in 2022.

Children’s Church

Children from 4 years old to 5th grade are invited to children’s church during morning worship, where they can grow as disciples through stories, songs, games, activities, and crafts! Children accompany their parents to worship, then are guided to Children’s Church following the children’s sermon in worship. Children’s Church is currently paused due to COVID-19, and children are invited to worship with their families. We look forward to beginning again in early 2022!

Camp #LiveDifferently July 2021

Camp #livedifferently

Fairmont’s heart for mission and service is encouraged in our children. For a week each summer, we offer Camp #livedifferently, centered around Matthew 25:40: “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for the least of these brothers and sisters of mind, you did for me.” Camp #livedifferently gives children 4 years through 5th grade in our church and community a hands-on experience to make a difference through Bible stories, crafts, and projects. We assemble school kits for children in foster care, make blankets for pediatric hospitals, assemble blessing bags for unsheltered neighbors, and stock our Little Free Food Pantry.
