Presently we learning information daily about safety standards for group meetings in Atlanta.
AIM's children activities operate alongside the Atlanta Public School Calendar. If APS is not meeting, then AIM activities will not meet.
With school being out for children, this effects parents and grand parents as well. Therefore, Ladies Bible Class and Children's Bible Study will not meet until circumstances change. Please monitor the APS Calendar, if the school buses run, the AIM buses will run.

AIM is very thankful for Brianna Davidson, who served as Intern in the summer of 2017. Brianna helped plan Kidscamp, the BBQ Luncheon, and Camp Wetoga during a busy summer. Brianna planned these events without having experienced the events before in life. The internship began in May and will end at the end of July. We pray God's blessing on Brianna's future in ministry.

AIM was blessed this summer to have "returning" interns Emandi Oppong Agyare (From Savannah State) and Stpehanie Riley (From Middle Tennessee University) to provide summer ministry leadership over KidsCamp and Camp Wetoga.
Both Emandi and Stephanie showed servant hearts, exceptional love for the kids, and focused planning and organization. Thank you Emandi and Stephanie! God bless your future service!

The summer of 2013 was busy and eventful.
Maurice Hill served as our lone summer intern and he remained busy in the first half of summer organizing 6 weeks of KidsCamp. Kidscamp is a daycamp for 1st to 6th grade young people.
In the last several weeks of summer Maurice focused on preparing for Camp Wetoga. Camp Wetoga is a 5 day and 4 night camp for 3rd to 6th grade young people. This summer AIM had 49 inner-city campers and 49 counselors volunteers, allowing for a one-on-one ratio of camper and counselor.
AIM has used the Camp Wetoga (which is the North Georgia Bible Camp) for 25 years. The 2013 Camp Wetoga was one of the best camps we have ever experienced.
