Accessibility at Fairfax 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 individuals and families affected by disabilities are always championed in the heartbeat of our church.

Worship Services

Our weekend worship services are designed for all people to fully participate. Ask our greeters if you need assistance getting seated or any special accommodations to experience worship as part of our church family.

Alternative Sensory Experiences: Our Great Room Coffee Shop and our Hangar auditorium are both alternate seating venues to our main sanctuary.

Friends for Life

Meets every Thursday from 7-8:30 PM

Friends for Life is an opportunity for adults (22 and older) with disabilities 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 faith, and serves the community together as a body of believers

Interested in serving with Friends for Life? Email Josh Falke.

Fairfax Kids

Our classrooms are inclusive for children of all abilities, and 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 Jessica Jedlicka.

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 children may need accommodations during their time in our building. 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 services.

Youth & Students

Younglife Capernaum

On Wednesday nights, we proudly host Younglife Capernaum, a local ministry for students with disabilities ages 14-22. Capernaum celebrates students’ diverse abilities and sharing the gospel to all God’s people. It 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 if you would like to get involved.

Student Ministries

For students in 7 – 12th grade who are better suited to traditional environments, we want you to consider the Hangar as your child’s space to worship. 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 strive to make their experience unique to their learning style.

Serve with Us

Everyone is called to serve in their own way, and we want to create opportunities for everyone to serve. Our hope is to equip people of all abilities and their families to be participants of the body of Christ!
