Does anyone know?

If I'm a member at a Church, and also working
paid child care there. And started going to a
different Church to become members,
will the church I left, find out that I am a
member at another church? And will the
church I left still let me work in the nursery?

  • There's probably no reporting mechanism, if that's what you mean. People might wonder why you stop coming to church, and you might even be asked why, if you are still working in the nursery. But unless they're being jerks about it, I wouldn't think you'd lose your childcare job.

  • They may decide they no loner need your services if you stop going to worship at the original church.

  • The new church should notify the old church of you change in membership, yes.
    I am assuming this is a daycare or mother's day out kind of situation.
    Unless it was made clear to you that the daycare is to benefit the members with care and also provide jobs for the members, I don't think you need to worry.

  • I'm guessing they will figure it out at some point, and I'm not sure if you will still be able to work there after they do

    probably depends on the size of the church and why you are going to a new one...

  • If you're in an at will state, they don't have to, so only you can really answer this question - how inclusive or exclusive is your employer when it comes to other denoms or forms for worship?
