Nursery care is provided every service for babies from birth until they reach 3 years old. Our trained staff and volunteers are eager to serve you and provide a safe experience for your child.
If there is one ministry that defines Fairhaven Baptist Church, it is the bus ministry. We believe that no other ministry has such wide-reaching effects. Over the years, we have been blessed to see countless children come to know the Lord through this ministry.
Every Saturday, dedicated men and women go from door to door, connecting with children who love to come to church, but have no transportation. However, Saturday is only the beginning! Sunday morning finds our buses outside the doors of hundreds of children's homes in the Northwest Indiana region, waiting to supply that transportation.
Each week, there is something special planned on every bus. Weather it is a simple treat on the bus, or a trip to the park after church, we try to make every Sunday memorable. Each spring and fall, things get really exciting! We devote four special Sundays to extra-special activities for the kids after the services. Beginning with a trip to the Lincoln Park Zoo, and ending with a day at the Fairhaven Fair, the fall is a favorite time for all of us. We strive to provide the children with safe and fun activities, but our primary goal is to teach them about the Lord. We count it a privilege to “Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in.”
On Thursday evenings during the school year we offer a time especially for children called Master Clubs. Children ages four through twelve learn Scriptures, listen to Bible stories and lessons, and enjoy fun activities. The club meets from October to mid-May on Thursdays from 7:00 p.m. to 8:15 p.m.
During the summer we offer a day camp in which hundreds of children come together for a great time! The campers enjoy swimming in the Olympic-sized pool, riding horses, and participating in field trips every week. Though there are many fun activities, we also take time to teach each child crafts and recreational and team sports. Along with these great activities, each day includes Bible preaching and teaching.
Camp starts at 9:00 a.m. and goes until 3:30 p.m. for ages 5 through 12 years old. For more information please visit this page.
Following the Sunday School hour, children in pre-school and elementary attend church with others of their age.
