Fairborn UMC


Opportunities to dig deeper and grow in your faith

Growing in Christ

Regardless of where you are on your spiritual journey, we haves various ministries and groups that strive to meet the needs and challenges of life, further your spiritual growth, and provide opportunities for service.

Children’s Ministry


Children’s Pastor

Children’s Ministry partners with parents in the spiritual development of their families through a variety of programs and resources.

We place a high value on children and believe that all children are created beautiful and sacred by God. Fairborn UMC is a place where kids can have fun & grow up knowing that being a follower of Jesus is important, as well as fun and exciting.


Our Nursery is available for babies aged 6 weeks to 3 yrs. Our primary purpose is to give love and care in a warm, safe environment while parents attend worship service.

Preschool & Elementary Kids

3yrs-5th Grade – And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in Favor with God and men.” Luke 2:52. Elementary age kids explore three Basic Truths every child should embrace according to what Jesus modeled in Luke 2:52, as they experience worship, God’s word, and small group community through First Look (preschool) and “252” Basics (Elementary):

  • I need to make a wise choice.
  • I can trust God no matter what.
  • I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
No Limits - Special Needs Ministry
No Limits is a ministry that is geared towards children that have special needs.
Each Sunday at 11am our No Limits program is for children of all ages with special needs. We offer a classroom to accommodate the unique learning styles and developmental stages of those seeking a deeper relationship with Jesus.
At 11am we will not only grow together in our faith, but create new friendships and a sense of community.
Upcoming Events
Fusion – Wednesdays at 6:30pm-8pm, Fairborn UMC



Our Youth Ministry exists to reach teenagers with the good news of Jesus so that they form a lasting relationship with Him.

Our goal is to help them become ROOTED in their relationship with Jesus, develop their gifts for serving, and have fun being a follower of Jesus.


What Happens on Sunday?

Come have a great time with other students in grades 6 through 12 as we hear a message that speaks to how we can apply the Bible to our everyday lives.  We will discuss that Bible application in an encouraging environment and participate in activities that can only be described as “youth groupy.”

Youth meet at 6:30pm on Wednesday evenings.

Hey Look! I'm in College

The college ministry helps connect college students with other students and mentors in the church. During the school year, we host end of semester celebrations and have families that host students for monthly meals or through care packages.

During the summer, we run a weekly Bible study called College Camp. This camp happens on Mondays at 9pm at the Starbucks on Dayton-Yellow Spring Road in Fairborn.
