Fairland Teens

The Core meets at Michiana Christian Camp twice a month on Sundays 4-6PM. 6th-12th graders are invited to join us for a time of community and challenge!


‘Teens in Focus’ will meet at the Gambles’ house on the Sundays that The Core doesn’t meet. Our first ‘Teens in Focus’ will meet next Sunday. ‘Teens in Focus’ will begin after the 10:45 service at the Gamble’s. Lunch will be served and then feasting on God’s Word. ‘Teens in Focus’ will conclude a 2:30 PM.


Students in grades 6-8 will be attending Believe in Holland, MI on April 24 – 25, 2020. This year’s theme is “Contact”

Registration is now open for another season of Upward Flag Football and Upward Cheerleading.  The mission of this great outreach ministry is “Promoting the Discovery of Jesus through Sports.”  When the season begins, once each week teams will come together for their hour-long flag football or cheerleading practice.  During that hour, the coach will spend 5 – 10 minutes sharing with the children from the Word of God and, throughout the season, will also be able to serve as a witness of the Gospel to each child’s family.  This nearly 3-month season includes eight consecutive Saturday games where parents, family, and friends will converge on the grounds of First Church of Christ-Christian on Yankee in Niles to not only enjoy athletic competition, but to also again be influenced by the encouragement and godly influence of Christian coaches and referees who are promoting the discovery of Jesus through sports.

This year’s program is being expanded to include young people ages 5 through grade 7.  If you haven’t registered yet, see Tom for registration forms and/or for more information.   All the action begins on April 3& 4th  with evaluation for football and cheerleading. Please be in prayer for the coaches, for the kids who will be involved, and for the parents who support them during this exciting ministry.  Thank you!
