Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."
Welcome to Fellowship Kids! Our passion is to partner with you as a parent as YOU lead your child to know God, love God, and serve God. We provide a safe, healthy, and biblically-centered environment for children while parents worship, learn, and serve during our weekend services.
Weekend Opportunities for Kids
NURSERY (ages 0-2)
PRESCHOOL (ages 2-5)
It is never too early to show God’s love to children. Our staff will welcome your children into an environment of loving care, safety, security, and stimulation, allowing you as parents to worship and serve in the body of Fellowship without worry.
In our preschool ministry, your child will discover the Bible through weekly Bible lessons and crafts. Our Fellowship Kids worship and puppet team reinforce the weekly Bible story in a fun and creative way.
Our Fellowship Kids elementary school program offers kids time to connect with others their age, worship with modern songs and drama, and study God’s word. Our elementary program begins each service with a time of group worship, led by the Fellowship Kids worship team, and then breaks into their age groups by grade for a time of teaching.
JOY is the "disability ministry" of Fellowship Bible Church. While the word "disability" is used, we prefer to think of JOY as a ministry of "possibilities" not defined by what can’t be done but rather by what all individuals regardless of ability level can achieve in God’s family. Our ultimate goal is to help our church culture be one that includes and accepts all members, and treats each other with the respect and love that Jesus expects of us.
Preschool through 6th grades use Discipleland™ curriculum for their learning center classes. Children are taught God’s Word through Bible stories, engaging visuals, using their Bibles in class, drama, and personal testimonies of teachers to build disciples of Jesus Christ.
Faith Path Overview
We at Fellowship Bible Church believe that God designed the family as the primary place for discipleship. The FAITH PATH initiative exists to partner with you as you guide your child’s faith journey one step at a time. Take advantage of the following links to begin the process in your family.

Director of Children's Ministry
Brian was born and raised in Martinsburg, WV and graduated from WVU in 2001. After living eight years in North Carolina, Brian and his high school sweetheart, Tracy, with whom he will be celebrating 20 years of marriage this year, moved to Stephens City in 2009 and soon began attending FBC. After getting plugged in quickly with a community group, they found FBC to be their home and began serving in Children's Ministry. An avid sports fan, Brian loves coaching Aubrey's softball team and supporting Sophie in volleyball. When the girls aren't playing they are rooting for the Washington Nationals or the Mountaineers. The Weir's are excited for this opportunity the Lord has presented to them and look forward to serving FBC's children, their families, and the many volunteers it takes to make this a thriving ministry.
Jamie was born and raised in Roanoke, VA setting herself as a mountain girl. After college, at Longwood University, she tried the beach life but soon learned being in the mountains is where she belongs. She moved to Winchester in 2006 and continued to teach in public schools. The next year she began attending FBC. While volunteering in the coffee ministry she met her husband, Caleb. They now have three energetic children. When she is not busy helping preschoolers connect with Christ she is busy keeping up her home, helping with their farm, and spending time with her family.
Having grown up in the church, Allisa is now excited to serve at FBC in this capacity. As the daughter of Pastor Carey, she moved to Virginia from Nebraska in 1990. She went to Lancaster Bible College and received degrees in Elementary Education and Bible. She went on to teach for almost 7 years in the public school system, married Joshua Avery, and resigned from teaching when their first daughter was born in 2014. Josh and Allisa have 3 kids whom she homeschools with coffee in hand. She also has the privilege of teaching 3-year-olds as well as a homeschool group at a local preschool. This position as nursery coordinator comes as a blessing to their family. Allisa is always thinking and working toward making the nursery ministry a blessing and encouragement for the littlest members of our church as well as their parents.
Children's Ministry Coordinator (FSat)
Heather is married to husband Michael, and they have five children (two of whom are teenagers!). As the nursery and preschool coordinator for Fellowship Saturday, she is able to get her “baby fix” by loving on and sharing Jesus with some super sweet babies, toddlers, and preschoolers every week. Heather desires to provide a nurturing atmosphere for the little ones in her care so that all members of the family can have a positive, faith- building experience. This position has been a blessing to Heather and her family who jump at the chance to serve alongside her each Saturday.
