Children's Church Problem. I am the teacher for Children's Church during our Sunday morning services. The age group is K - 5th and the parents decide when they want them to start to sit in church or if they want them to join Children's Church younger than 5. For over 3 years we've had this age range and all of a sudden I'm being told that the church is now writing a policy for Children's Church and that any child older than 6 will not be allowed. I was never consulted nor do the people making the policy know anything about Children's Church. I told my preacher that the age was up to the parents and not him, me, or the policy makers....he said it was up to him and the policy makers. He basically took the decision away from the parents. So question, I feel like this is wrong....Should I fight it? I know it will hurt my kid's feeling to be told no. My thing is that no kid who want to come to Children's Church and learn about God should be turned away no matter what the age or policy.
