    I remember when churches had evening services - there were no children's church.
    Time to bring back evening services?

    Do you feel like the two are related -- that is, stopping Sunday evening services and starting children's church?

    Historically, we've had both. Though, no Children's Church in the PM service.

    So, both of you are saying you had children's church in the am, but not in the pm?

    Most church programs resemble the public school system. I prefer to integrate and involve kids in the service, from start to finish.

    I don't need a baby boomer teaching my kids on how they think Christ should be. That's what you get in most nursery or kids programs, a lay person probably teaching Jesus wore a dress and gave everyone hugs.

    Then who is responsible for appointing nursery workers ?
    Do you feel the same way about SS teachers - Primary (1-3) Juniors (4-6) Teens (7-12) ?

    I'm scratching my head. The youngest baby boomer would be in their mid-50s.

    Leppers?

    Forget Sunday School, looks like 'J.D.' needs some regular school.
