Our vision for the Children's Ministry at Fair Oaks is to partner with parents in cultivating personal, spiritual growth for your children. Our purpose is to share God's Big Story with our kids so they have a knowledge of God the Father, and develop a relationship with his son, Jesus Christ. We do this by using interactive and engaging curriculum, called Orange, taught by dedicated, kid-loving staff. Our desire is that your children will know, love, and reflect Christ in their lives.
Our goal at Fair Oaks is to expose kids of all ages to God and His Word by learning age appropriate truths taught directly from the Bible. We want to work with you to help shepherd your children into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
The youngest (birth through ones) get to be a part of a very nurturing environment that includes worship music and incredible volunteers who are passionate about your little one.
Toddlers (2 and 3 year olds)
Toddlers will find themselves in a room with toys and games and volunteers who are ready to lead and teach the truth of God’s Word. Through simple worship songs, and a short Bible story, your toddler will begin to form a foundation for a relationship with Jesus.
PreK and Kindergarten
Our 3-5 year olds experience their first large group programming where together they’ll sing and learn motions to worship songs and hear a short Bible story. Then they’ll gather to do an activity to help them remember what they’ve learned. We want them to be engaged and enjoy learning about God and His love for them!
Elementary 1st– 5th
In our elementary class, kids will walk into a room that has been designed with them in mind. They’ll meet volunteers who are ready to get to know them through fun games and activities. Then it’s large group programming time where they’ll learn and move to energetic worship songs, hear from an upfront host, watch a skit and hear a Bible story followed by small group time when they’ll do an activity and talk about what they’ve learned and how to apply it to their lives. The kids are separated in groups according to their grade to allow them to learn and interact in a way that is unique to them and their age. We want them to discover God in a new way so that they will continue to grow in their walk with Him as they move on to the middle school ministry.
