At Aim Church, the goals for our children are the same as they are for the adults: Mission and Maturity. We see clearly in scripture that we are to raise them up to love and follow Jesus. That means the church is not the primary discipler of children. Our goal is to equip Parent to do this at home. Below is some info on worship gatherings and some bible resources for young children and teens. All info is also printed and available on the resource shelf in the sanctuary.

When Aim Church gathers from all over Etowah County to worship on a Sunday, children meet in one of 2 areas. Our children newborn to 5 years old will meet in our Aim Kids area and children 6 years and up worship in the sanctuary with parents. A worship and sermon notes sheet is provided for them to track along with the adults. (All Volunteers in Aim Kids are MinistrySafe trained and certified.) As Aim Church grows and increased volunteers, we hope to add more classrooms for various ages.)

It includes step by step instructions for engaging in reading the scripture with your teen. Here is a link to the original article which has links within it to further resources.
