We have been attending our church for about 8 years or so. We have been active and participated and helped with most everything.
Last year we had a new couple join who immediately took over several church activities. The wife took over the nursery.
I also volunteer one Sunday a month to work in the nursery. But last week she called me at home and told me that they were having trouble with my dd being disobedient and speaking ugly to them and wondered what they could do.
I am in the other side of the nursery in the 1's an 2's group but can HEAR what is going on in the 4's class. I have never known of a problem.
It hurt my feelings I guess and now I dont feel welcome in my own church.
Mainly b/c her son who is 4 as well and the other teachers dd who is 4 as well...I have had problems with too....but I never dreamed of calling them to complain.
You just deal with it and as long as they are SAFE they are fin

I would try not to take it personally and I wouldn't want this to effect how I felt about my whole church. Ask your daughter about what happened.

If you feel like your daughter is being singled out or that these people who "took over" things are creating a bad atmosphere you might want to take a break. Perhaps attend church with friends or family members for a few weeks - besides giving you a break from an uncomfortable situation, it might be nice to see how other churches do things. Or stay home & commit some time to personal spiritual study/growth as a family. A few weeks could give you clarity. Perhaps you will decide you were making a mountain out of a mole-hill or you might come to the conclusion that this incident was just one symptom of a church that is going in a way you don't like. Fellowship should always be comfortable & welcoming for you. When a church stops feeling like that to you, it is time to move on. It doesn't necessarily mean the church went bad or is wrong, it just means you need something different.
