Family Ministries

Families are the cornerstone of St. Aidan’s. One of the many ways we support our families is through our Children’s Ministry and Youth Ministry. 

St. Aidan’s Children’s Ministry

Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever becomes humble like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”

Matthew 18:3-4

Children’s Ministry at St. Aidan’s provides year-round, lectionary-based  programming for children ages 3 months through 5th Grade. These offerings support our objective of Faith Fluency by providing our youngest members with age-appropriate lessons reinforcing the weekly readings. Our program year runs with the school year beginning in August and concluding in May; we reference the Fulton, Forsyth and Cherokee County school calendars. VBS and inter-generational summer programming takes place during June and July.

Offerings include Children’s Chapel, Sunday School, family-friendly fellowship events, age-appropriate mission and service opportunities, our annual Christmas Pageant and other festive, holiday events.
