We know that visiting a church for the first time can be an unsettling experience. Whether you’re coming back to church or checking it out for the first time we know it’s a big step and we want it to be a great one. Below are some things you can expect on any given Sunday. There are a lot of great churches in the Northern Virginia area. We hope you will give ours a try! See you Sunday.
What To Expect
Expect a casual and welcoming environment where you can come as you are. Dress casual or wear a suit, it’s your choice. Grab a cup of coffee and a snack and bring it to worship with you. We want you to have the freedom to check us out.
No high-pressure pitches or long drawn out guilt trips. Just honest talk in easy-to-understand language that’s practical to everyday life. One of our mottos is, “If you can’t use it on Monday, we won’t say it on Sunday.”
We like to have fun together and these times are perfect for inviting a friend. Free food always sweetens the deal too. Whether it's events like WaterWars or Living Nativity or small groups, you are encouraged to bring your friends.
Sometimes it can be tough to find a place to serve where you are making a difference. People are often on the lookout for meaningful service projects. Serving our community is important to us at Fairfax Circle Church. Our desire is to show the love of Christ by meeting various needs in our community. There are several areas of opportunity for you to get involved. We also have a special heart for vulnerable children and hope that through our partnerships we can change the world, one person at a time.
Fairfax Circle isn’t about buildings or sermons or songs. It’s about people. Our small groups are where people become each other’s community and family. They're there to help pick you up when you’re down and inspire you to grow as a person and grow closer to God. A small group is a weekly gathering of people who meet in a home to study the Bible, pray and share one another’s experiences.
We know that as a parent your children are very important to you and you need to be sure that they are safe and having fun. We’ve invested a lot to make sure that both of these goals are reached. When you walk into our lobby, one of the first things you’ll notice is our Children’s Check-In station. From there, you can expect a great kids program for Birth – 6th Grade, with many fun activities and learning adventures. Of course your kids are always welcome to join you in worship if that’s better for your family.
On Sunday mornings middle and high school students are given opportunities to serve. They are a vital part of our Sunday morning Kid’s Ministry, worship teams and hospitality teams. On Sunday nights we have a place just for them.
Every 3rd Sunday we take 5 minutes (and only 5 minutes) to do a quick introduction to all things Fairfax Circle Church. Join us down front after the service to get the basics and have any questions you have answered. We hope to see you there!
