Psalm 127:3- 5 “Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.”
THERE IS SOMETHING FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY AT FBC FAIRFIELD, AND THAT INCLUDES OUR YOUNGEST FAMILY MEMBERS…
Infants – PreK:
During our Sunday morning Bible study and Worship Service, nursery care is available* in our secure Preschool wing. Visit the Welcome Center Gathering Place (on the east side of the property) to check in with our nursery team.
ELEMENTARY AGE KIDS:
Our worship (music) time is designed to be inclusive of school-aged children and to give them a variety of learning experiences. School-aged students are welcome to sit with their parents or their peer group (teachers sit with them) during the first part of our service to share in lifting their voices to the Lord. After a time of worship, children (K through 4th grade) are typically invited to break away for our Kids Konnect service, where lessons and activities are prepared just for them!
Occasionally, Pastor Jeffrey will have a special time of teaching with our children when he will invite them to join him down front for a lesson. Other times, children will remain for the entire service hour so that our Kids Konnect leaders may join in the service, and so that you may worship with your children as a family.
* Unless otherwise noted, child care is available for all Sunday Morning services, but not necessarily for other church events or services. There may be occasions, such as special services, where child care is not available so that families may worship together regardless of age. Details are announced in the church bulletin.
Sunday Morning Bus Ministry – We are so sure you and your kids will love joining us at FBCF, we will even offer a ride! You must register (in advance) to ride, and call our shuttle team each week to confirm that you are riding, but we are happy to give you a lift, get you to church, and get you home after service!
Our Wednesday Evening gatherings run September through May and we will soon be on break for the summer.
Next Fall, we invite students to join us at 5pm each Wednesday for a church wide dinner ($5 suggested donation) followed by fellowship, study, and games.
Reach out to Ms. Jessica, Children’s Ministry Director, if you have questions, to register, or if you want to volunteer to help with TeamKid.
Ages: Pre-K4 to 6th Grade
TeamKid is a fun, high-energy ministry that encourages kids to know Jesus Christ and grow in a relationship with Him. Every part of TeamKid – Bible stores, Bible verses, life application, missions, and recreation – all connect to teach life lessons to kids.
CLICK ON THE LINK ABOVE TO DOWNLOAD THE CHILD SAFETY TRAINING REGISTRATION FORM.
All FBC Staff and Volunteers who come in contact with those 18 yrs and younger will be required to complete the safety training during the month of June. Turn in your form and $5 registration fee to the church office.
Parents want to know that their kids are safe and secure when they leave them at church. Because we also take child safety seriously, we ask that all potential volunteers apply at the church office, complete a background check, and meet with our ministry leaders prior to accepting a position of service. Further, we have security cameras throughout the property and a group of men who volunteer as our safety patrol.
UPWARD Sports Ministry is on a sabbatical! Not just off-season…
FBC has offered this vital ministry for many years. It has become a staple of our community. However, Covid-19 so complicated the planning and training needed to execute the 2021 Upward season and we then lost the momentum of volunteers and interested leader for future seasons.
We are actively praying that The Lord will raise up at team of leaders to help coordinate this important ministry for the future. You don’t have to oversee all of Upward (which is a huge task), just be willing to undertake leadership of a specific area within your skill set, which might include: Administration & Enrollment, Concessions, Referees and Evaluations, Chaplaincy/Devotionals, Coaches, Game Day Set up & Clean Up.
Please reach out to us if you have an interest in serving (and list your area of interest) on our Upward leadership team in the future.
*All adult volunteers will be provided, and expected to attend, program training as well as Ministry Safe Training.
