Fun Club

Our Fun Club for Kids

 

Fairview  United Methodist Church pursued a mission outreach program for the  school-aged children of the community during the school year of Fall  2016 and continues still in 2018.


Fairview  Fun Club meets on Wednesdays from 5:30-6:00 p.m. for supper and from  6:00-7:00 p.m. for fun activities in the fellowship hall at Fairview  UMC.


Fairview Fun Club has a concentration of students from the 45405 and 45406 zip codes, though many others are represented. 


Fun  Club has Fairview UMC adults who volunteer as teachers, meal shoppers  and chief cook, servers of the meals, those that clean up after the  meals, and the pastor. There are also some volunteers who are college  students, (that help when they are available), to be with one of the  teachers, as well as a few other adults who encourage the children,


Currently, the students are divided by school grade groups: 

K-1st, 2nd-3rd, 4th-5th, 6th-7th, and 8th grade through 12th grade.

There  is a teacher for each of these 5 groups that is responsible for  developing a lesson, preparing, getting and setting all materials at  their table, researching the information and procedure to best instruct  the students in understanding and execution of all projects and lessons,  no matter how many students may come. 


Most  lessons are hands-on, using crafts, puzzles, word searches, books,  music, physical activity, experimentation, discussion and sharing of  ideas.


As with most  teachers who teach in a school, the Fun Club adults give freely of their  time, experience and financial resources, without any compensation  except the joy of interacting with the students and seeing these  students become a mini-community, while developing skills, learning  something new and even surprising, having fun and becoming more  responsible as young people.
