children & families
At Fairmount we celebrate the imagination, energy, playfulness and curiosity of children as ways to explore the Spirit of God within them. As fully formed beings in the image of God, children have much to teach us about experiencing God's love.

sunday mornings from september through may
nursery, toddler & preschool care 8:15am-12:15pm
Infants and toddlers relate to God as they would a favorite blanket or stuffed animal, associating God with the love and security they experience from their parents and caregivers while at church. Our nursery is a rich and interesting environment of hands-on play planned just for young children. Our caregivers will know and greet your children by name, helping them to experience the love and grace of God during their care.
sunday school 9:50-10:50 am
children preschool age-6th grade check in at the foot of the central staircase then head out to classes for thier specific age range.
WE time (during the 11:00am worship service)
Each Sunday we ask that all children join their families for the beginning of worship until The Time for Young Disciples. After this point in worship, children preschool through third-grade will be invited to join Mrs. Lang, Amy Kim, and other shepherds for WE TIME (Worship Enrichment). We will sing songs, experience the scriptures, pray together, and have a time of worship. We will collect our offering and then re-join the congregation during the offering to sing the closing hymn and receive the benediction.
On the first Sunday of the month, Communion Sunday, we ask that all elementary-aged children remain in worship for the entire service.
Participation by children in these services is not only encouraged; it is vital to the energy and life of our worship. Pastors and staff will help create worship that specifically embraces all ages on these Sundays. As always, toddlers and children under four are welcome to be in the nursery anytime on Sunday mornings.
