I remember as a youngster in a rather large church we had a myriad of different class options. There was the Seniors, singles, young marrieds, teens, etc. Now, as a pastor and parent, I think it is vital that families stay together in church--except for maybe the infants who can be quite disruptive. I have 4 children all under the age of 10 and they hear the preaching from the "adult" pulpit 3 times a week. What is it with separating families at church? Is this really the best thing? This is not an argument about whether or not someone can get something good from another class that is customed to their "needs". I know that can happen. It is an issue of what we are sacrificing in order to do that. TOO MANY CLASSES IN CHURCH AND NOT ENOUGH FAMILY!! Pardon me, I just thought that needed to be yelled.
