How should I prepare my kids?

Each Sunday, you will need to check your child into our Children's Ministry. For first time visitors we ask that you fill out an information card and a claim card that can be found on the main level at the Welcome Center. Returning parents will be asked to Check-In on the computer and print out a name tag. Both formats will include your child’s name as well as information regarding specific allergies. From there you will walk them to their age-specific classroom. When you return at the end of service you will Check-Out your child by handing the teacher your claim card if you are a first time visitor. 


Thank you so much for helping us as we strive to make our Children's Ministry a safe environment for your kids to learn about God.

Who's Involved?

Every Sunday morning we provide a safe environment for kids from birth through 12th grade where they can learn about Jesus and connect with each other.

We strive to:

  • Provide a safe accepting environment where all children feel loved and valued.
  • Partner with parents in the spiritual nurturing of their children.
  • Provide caring quality leaders whose lives model the lessons they teach.
  • Reach out to children with God's love and teach them God's truth. 
  • Build a strong biblical foundation in an exciting, experiential, and relevant way.
  • Help children gain a Christian perspective as they work through issues they face at home, at school, and with friends. 
  • Encourage children to be a light in Fairbanks and show the way to God with their words and actions.
