A tongue-in-cheek exploration of how kids get disconnected…even when we have their best interest at heart:
There is an epidemic in this generation of young adults who attended church when they were children and young teens only to leave as soon as they become “of age.” What are we as a church doing to get these students to leave? While there are many answers to this questions, here are five things your church can do to get children to leave as soon as they grow up.
- Play a lot of games in children’s church. Games aren’t wrong, but when a children’s ministry mostly focuses on games and the wow factor, children will grow up expecting to be entertained. When they start attending adult church, they will become disappointed and leave.
- Teach children to be good. It doesn’t sound right, but teaching children to be good can cause them to walk away from the church. There is nothing wrong with being good, but we should be teaching children to have a relationship with Jesus Christ. Being good isn’t good enough. We need to teach our children to be godly.
