Our church has been having Children's Church for about the last year. We are having trouble really getting it up and running. In fact the person that was in charge of it--resigned this past Wednesday. Our church has tabled naming someone to take his place. My questions--what ages should go to Children's church? We have kids from newborn all the way up to 18 going. And who should go to Children's Church. We have the husbands of the ladies that are helping out with children's church going back and sitting back there and we have both parents of all the children going. I was always under the impression it was for children and it was also to give parents a chance to really enjoy the church service without having to take care of their own children. My child is 14 and refuses to go back to children's church--she had rather sit up front with the regular service and then there are three 18 year olds and one 17 year old that just go to Children's Church so they don't have to listen.
