My eleven year old can't go to church because I am disabled and cannot take her how can I keep her close to god without church

How does she ever go anywhere then and what makes church different? Perhaps a family friend or youth leader can give her a ride.

You don't 'need' to go to church to have a relationship w/ God, but the fellowship w/ other believers and friends is SO important... especially for a preteen/teenager.

Reading the Bible together, listening to worship music, praying together, and discussing what you believe and why can all help, but her relationship w/ God is ultimately between her and God.

Perhaps pray about it and speak to the pastor about how you can work it out to keep her involved in the youth group and other church activities.
