zee_four posted a topic in Baptists/EvangelicalsI'm not sure if this is the right place to ask but I figured if anyone could give me a straight answer it would be the wonderful people at FJ. My son is 4, he'll be 5 in September. He's been living with his grandparents for the last 2 years due to some problems (I had been in an abusive relationship with his dad, after we split up I struggled for a bit) They're wonderful people and I know he's happy, loved, safe and cared for. The thing is his grandparents live in Texas and are very religious. They're not fundies, both their sons are tattooed pot smoking snowboarders. But they're definitely deep south Baptists. My son was in the weekday preschool last year, he'll be in Pre-K through the school district this coming year. He still goes to Sunday School every weekend and has been in Vacation Bible School all summer. He's getting to the age where he's internalizing a lot more of the messages he's getting. His mom is a biracial (half white half Native) liberal from the west and knows nothing about this. I did some research of my own and their church uses AWANA curriculum. Everything online says it's for evangelical Baptist churches which is slightly disconcerting to me. Does anyone have personal experiences with it? Anything I should be concerned about? I want my son to my raised respecting equality of all genders, sexual orientations, ethnicities, religions, etc. Thanks for any information anyone can help with!
