Support for families this fall (Centerville Campus)

Middle School Small Group.

Posted: September 15, 2020

10-12-20 UPDATE: 

After-School Game Time and Study Tables have provided an opportunity for Kids & Students to engage in community while their schools have been online. They have provided them with an outlet for fun, a time to be with their friends, and an opportunity to connect with our staff in a unique way.

With our local schools returning to in-person learning, Students' Study Tables and After-School Game Time for both Kids & Students will end on Thursday, October 15.

We continue to pray for all of our families during this time and encourage you to become a part of the Fairhaven Families Facebook group for updates on how you can get involved and stay connected.

This fall has presented many families with some unique challenges. With many schools being online, kids and students unable to enjoy important time together, and parents trying to balance job responsibilities with caring for their children, we want to provide some resources to help alleviate some of the stress on families right now.

Below, you'll find a number of opportunities for kids, students, and parents at our Centerville Campus that we hope will help get us through this difficult season.

Fairhaven Families Facebook Group

We've created a “Fairhaven Church Families" Facebook group to serve as a connection point for families around topics like parenting, tutoring, childcare and other things specific to this season. We want to foster conversation that will lead to connection between families, so we can be the Church for each other.

If you're a family with kids or students in your home, or if you're someone who can offer help, counsel or resources to other families, we encourage you to join!
