Here are Fairfax Community Church, we believe everyone has a place within the body of Christ and are necessary within the fabric of the church. We recognize the essential and invaluable contribution of people with disabilities to the life of the church. Our individual ministries seek to address these lifelong needs as we strive to ensure that those individuals and families affected by disabilities are always championed in the heartbeat of our church.

Kids

Buddy Ministry

Classrooms are inclusive for children of all abilities. We have volunteers equipped to serve as one-on-one buddies to help children with disabilities participate as much as possible. If you know a child that would benefit from having a one-on-one buddy to help in worship or classroom participation, contact Marcy Davis.

Who can be a buddy? Anyone willing to love a child and help them experience the love of Christ can be a buddy. Training is available for those interested.

Sensory Room

We recognize that some students may need accommodations during their time at FCC. Our sensory room is equipped with furniture, lighting, and tools to help children with disabilities feel secure and free to be themselves. The sensory room is staffed with volunteers during all four services.

Youth

Younglife Capernaum

On Wednesday nights, we proudly host Younglife Capernaum, a local ministry for students with disabilities ages 14-22. YLC is focused on celebrating students’ diverse abilities and sharing the gospel to all God’s people. Capernaum is an inclusive environment that gives teenagers with disabilities the chance to develop friendships, challenge their limits, build self-esteem, and have outrageous fun! Contact Maison Lowery is you would like to get involved.

The Hangar

For students between 7th & 12th grade who are better suited to traditional environments, we want you to consider the Hangar as a space to worship. If you know a student with a disability please contact students@fairfax.cc prior to them coming to the Hangar in order for us to best help them. We welcome all students to worship with us and will work to make their experience unique to how they learn.

Adults

Friends for Life

Friends for Life is an opportunity for adults with disabilities, 22 and older, to learn and grow into the men and women God made them to be. Friends for Life engages in fellowship with other believers, dives into scripture to grow in their faith, and serves the community together as a body of believers.
