Faith formation programs work with parents to nourish a child's spiritual life by building on the life of faith in the home with ongoing and systematic learning opportunities. We welcome all families, whether members of Fairlawn or not, to participate in our congregation's youth programs. If this is your first time, you are welcome to contact our church office (508-234-2838) for the latest details about participation and schedules.
The following ministries are listed on this page:
Classes for children and youth meet on Sunday mornings during the school year for grades K-12, and offer systematic Bible teaching and catechetical instruction. We currently have two classes (K-5 and 6-12), which begin at 9:00am.
A time of Bible lessons and activities is provided for children aged 3 through Pre-K during the morning sermon.
Our "quiet room" is a quiet space available during the worship service for families whose children have sensory issues, or some other concern, but are too old for our nursery programs (newborn through Pre-K). There's a TV to be able to watch the service, and some materials to occupy kids or help them engage the sermon.
Story Hour, for 3 to 5-year-olds, offers Bible stories, singing, praying, crafts and snacks for toddlers during our Coffee Break women's Bible study program on Thursday mornings. a nursery for infants is also provided. See our Coffee Break page for more information.
Though our numbers are small, we periodically organize events for our junior high and high school students to enjoy fellowship, activities, and spiritual growth. Watch the calendar or check with the office for specific details.

Whitinsville Christian School
Whitinsville Christian School (WCS) is a pre-K through Grade 12 school begun by the Whitinsville Christian Reformed Church in 1928 for the purpose of complementing the efforts of church and family in the Christian education of our covenant children. Fairlawn continues to actively support the mission of WCS through the giving of time and resources. In addition to the many Fairlawn families whose children are enrolled at WCS, many of our members also serve on the school's faculty, staff, and Board of Trustees. Fairlawn also offers families financial support through a tuition assistance program.
