Children's Church School
GEMS (Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior) is a club ministry of the Christian Reformed Church for girls in grades 1-6. The goal of the program is to provide an opportunity for relationship building and spiritual growth for girls. Meetings are held on alternating Wednesdays from 6:15 - 8:00pm at Pleasant Street Christian Reformed Church. Each counselor leads a small group of girls when working on badges, learning crafts and getting to know one another.
The Calvinist Cadet Corps is a club ministry for boys in grades 1-6. The goal of the program is to help boys grow more Christlike in all areas of life: mental, physical, emotional, social and devotional. Activities include camping, hiking, games, and learning various skills. Meetings are held on alternating Wednesdays from 6:15 - 8:00pm at Pleasant Street Christian Reformed Church. Counselors work side-by-side with the boys on Bible lessons, service & craft projects, outdoor activities (like camping, hiking, canoeing, etc.), and work on merit badges selected from a wide range of interests and skills.
Fairlawn's annual week-long summer event for children age 4 through grade 8. Activities include Bible lessons, crafts, sports and recreation, and lots of singing and musical instruction. See our Choir Fest page for more information.
Coffee Break and Story Hour
Coffee Break Bible Study is a place where people who have never opened a Bible—as well as those who have a lot of experience—can feel comfortable to share and to learn about God and what he desires for them. Coffee Break reaches out to women and children from the community through a time of fellowship, Bible study, sharing, and prayer. The group meets on Thursdays at 9:30am during the school year. Story Hour, for 3- to 5-year olds, offers Bible stories, singing, praying, crafts and snacks for toddlers. A nursery for infants is also provided. See our Coffee Break page for more information.
A time of Bible lessons and activities is provided for children aged 3 through kindergarten during the morning sermon.
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.
