Come join us on Sunday nights for a variety of children's groups.
If your child enoys singing, come check out our children's choirs. Children are split into three different choirs based on age. Practices are held on Sunday evenings from 6:00-7:00PM from September through April. Each choir sings at the beginning of various services throughout the season.
Is singing not your child's thing? That's ok because we offer an exciting new program called Impact Kids! Impact Kids is Children’s Ministry’s version of the Impact Ministry. Children will participate in service projects that will allow our kids to have a direct Impact in our community, in Virginia, in the United States and across the world!
Impact Kids meets every Sunday evening from 6:00-7:00PM from September through April in Room 174.
In 2015, Fairmount Christian Church chartered our very own American Heritage Girl’s troop -Troop VA2015! American Heritage Girls is a Christ-centered scouting program. The emphasis of AHG is to help foster character, spiritual, and social development in young girls, and also to help them learn life and leadership skills, learn to work as a part of a team, and to build confidence.

In 2018, Fairmount Christian Church chartered a Trail Life USA troop! Trail Life USA is a Christ-centered outdoor adventure, leadership, and character development ministry. Our Mission is to guide generations of courageous young men to honor God, lead with integrity, serve others, and experience outdoor adventure. Our vision is to be the premier national character development organization for young men which produces Godly and responsible husbands, fathers, and citizens.
Statement of Faith
We believe there is One Triune God – God the Father; Jesus Christ, His one and only Son; and the Holy Spirit – Creator of the universe and eternally existent. We believe the Holy Scriptures (Old and New Testaments) to be the inspired and authoritative Word of God. We believe each person is created in His image for the purpose of communing with and worshiping God. We believe in the ministry of the Holy Spirit, Who enables us to live godly lives. We believe each of us is called to love the Lord our God with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength, and to love our neighbors as ourselves. We believe God calls us to lives of purity, service, stewardship and integrity.
Statement of Values
Purity // God calls us to lives of holiness, being pure of heart, mind, word and deed. We are to reserve sexual activity for the sanctity of marriage, a lifelong commitment before God between a man and a woman.
Service // God calls us to become responsible members of our community and the world through selfless acts that contribute to the welfare of others.
Stewardship // God calls us to use our God-given time, talents, and money wisely.
Integrity // God calls us to live moral lives that demonstrate an inward motivation to do what is biblically right regardless of the cost.
On my honor,
I will do my best
To serve God and my country;
To respect authority;
To be a good steward of creation; And to treat others
as I want to be treated.
