Children's Church  

To worship together as a family is truly a blessing.  On the first Sunday of each month, we intentionally do not offer Children’s Church so families may worship and celebrate Holy Communion together.  We encourage you to make the most of this opportunity to be a positive influence on your children.  Teach them how to   participate in all the elements of “Big Church”  worship - be their example.  Proverbs 22:6 says: Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.  Please know that your children are always welcome in all our worship services—and not just on the first Sunday of the month!  It’s a precious thing to hear their sweet voices praising God. 

On the remaining Sundays, children ages 4 years - 2nd grade are welcome to attend Children’s Church during the 11:00 worship services (Children’s Church is not held during the 8:30 service).  Children will attend the first portion of worship with their family and then be dismissed and escorted by Children’s Ministry leaders to the Fellowship Hall in the Christian Life Center.  They can be picked up from the Fellowship Hall immediately following the worship services.



Nursery ~ The nursery is children ages 3 months through Prek-4 during all worship services and Sunday School.  The Nursery is located in Rooms B123 and B127.

 

Each of our ministries to children depends on the help of adult servants.  
Please pray about your role in bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ to
HIS children at Fairhope UMC!
