Sarah CB Posted July 20, 2008 Share Posted July 20, 2008 I know we just had that great thread on Youth Group - why or why not? I've been pondering that and have also just finished reading Family Driven Faith by Dr. Voddie Baucham. I've also listened to a bunch of his stuff from the Colorado conference. I really like what he has to say about the authority and responsibility of the family. I do believe that it is our primary role to disciple and raise our children, but I don't know that having our kids attend Sunday school or youth is negating that responsibility. If we're doing our utmost to disciple our kids at home then what would be the downside to having our kids attend Sunday school or youth group? Right now, I look at Sunday school as an opportunity for the kids to enjoy crafts, singing, and games with other kids their age in a nurturing environment. Same with youth group. It's an area where I feel safe allowing my 12 year old the freedom to get together with friends and do some fun things with solid supervision. I am not sure that learning about our faith at youth, in addition to solid teaching at home, is going to have any negative effects. But something about age-segregation doesn't sit well with me... So, can anyone share with me why they decided to go to a fully family-integrated model? Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
