  1. Hi,
    Ok so I found your website and so far what I’ve read is very helpful. I wanted t ask your opinion. I started going to this brand new church, it actually just opened it’s door maybe two months ago. I’ve never tried a new church, we’ve generally gone to big established churches. This church has recruited me to start a young, youth group on Thursday. Nights. I was asked because I was wondering about the future plans for my ten yr old daughter. I should be excited but I’m actually very unsure of this commitment. I’m not a pastor or teacher, just a mom. This group is very small. One other very busy mom offered to help. On Sundays, generally there are only 6 kids of all different ages. Should we just worry about Sunday youth and when it grows more, go forward with thur night youth group. The teens already have a group going together. What do you think? Need help
