God has given everyone spiritual gifts, passions, natural abilities, a unique personality and special experiences. These gifts have been given for one purpose: to serve God by serving others. Serving others is an important part of spiritual growth. At Fairfax Circle Church one of our core values is that “everyone is important and has a role to play.” Therefore, we want to help everyone find a place to plug in and give back – to serve.
We have lots of opportunities for you to serve, and we want to help you find a place where you can use your gifts and invest in others. Below is a list of some of the ongoing opportunities for service we have. If you would like to find out more about any of these areas or would like to volunteer, please Email us at email@example.com.

All-Stars – This is our Sunday morning environment for children in Kindergarten through 6th grade. In All-Stars we create opportunities for children to discover and experience for themselves who God is, how He sees them and how much He loves them. We want to show them God’s big story and help them discover the active part they can play in this life-long adventure of becoming more like Him.
Our All-Stars environment includes a large group Bible story presentation, activities, games, and small group time with adult leaders. [volunteer]
