I know a family trying their dead level best to raise their grandkids to love and serve the Lord, facing some tough questions in doing so. I'd like your input and thoughts. This family lives in a very rural area with limited church choices. Most of those choices are eliminated by doctrine: no way will they go to an LDS or RCC service. They are not word of faith or Pentecostal. That leaves them with two choices. Both are sound doctrinally. Both offer what seem at first glance excellent Sunday School programs. Both have extremely long church services. (SS runs about 45 minutes at one, 1 hour at the other. Church runs about 2 hours 15 minutes at one, about one hour 30 minutes to one hour 45 minutes at the other.) Neither has any sort of children's church so the kids would be in those services the full time. They've tried them both and even at the shorter service, it isn't working with the kids. Not that they misbehave, just that they sort of mentally check out after a while and are bored. By the time the family gets home they say they are all tired, hungry, and the kids are pretty grumpy. (Kids are grade school age.) When I say "family" I mean the grandparents take the kids to church. Parents are nonchurched. I don't know if the parents are believers. These grandparents have decided to take the kids to Sunday School and then all go home for continued discussion over Sunday dinner. Then the kids go home to parents. Grandparents can attend Sunday pm activities and midweek prayer meeting and Bible study. It sounds like a workable plan under the circumstances to me, but the grandparents say they feel guilty skipping Sunday morning worship. I say better that than turning these children totally off to church. I'm wondering what you all would do under the circumstances these folks face?
