Is this wrong?

We recently moved to a very small town. We had to pull dd out of her beloved Montessori school. She'll be in kinder next year. But she's so bored and lonely. As I said, this is a SMALL town. I've been thinking of taking us to church just so she can make some little friends. DH and I were not raised in the church and we don't even know what we believe. I sort of feel like its wrong to use the church in this way. But I feel bad for my lonely dd too. What do y'all think? Is it immoral to do this?

 No, I go to church, with my mom or DH's mom, from time to time. I don't follow the bible or believe in super organized religions. I just go to shut them up.

*If you read my post and there are mistakes in my spelling or grammar please note that I never learned either in school and I am currently learning them now. If you see a mistake POLITELY point it out and I'll be more than happy to correct my mistake. Here's a fun little siggy for your enjoyment. *

Find a play group if you're uncomfortable with church. I'm sure there's one near you.

We just moved to a small, rural town, and we're atheists. I wish we had the money to put DD in a Montessori school, but I'm staying home with her until she's 5, so that's off the table. What I did was put her in a church-run preschool, which, in this small town, is $110 a month, 2-3 hours a day, 3 days a week. It's perfect for her. She's almost 4. I just keep her home on "Bible Rock" days, and me and the moms have playdates for the kids throughout the week, like after school.

I don't mean this sarcastically, but maybe in doing so, you guys could find your way. Take it as a learning tool, and you could perhaps decide on what to believe. GL!

No luck with play group out here. I've looked quite a bit. It's a pretty rural area and I imagine people don't like to drive so much.

Church's are happy to have you. You may be pleasently surprised by what you'll learn.

Yeah well, I'm half afraid of bursting into flames when I walk through the door lol :)
I think the basics of church are good for everyone. I'm scared of my kids getting ideas and values that differ from our family. For example, my SIL is a lesbian. She's in a committed relationship for 15 years and they have a son. Her "aunties" are a big part of her life and we don't want her thinking they're going to hell or that she needs to pray the gay away or something wretched like that. I don't want her chiding to do the right things in life because she scared of the consequences ie: going to hell. I want her to make the right choices because its the right thing to do. I don't want her worried for my soul because i drink beer and say damn and hell regularly. Kids are so impressionable. I had some terrifying church experiences as a kid. My grandma is southern baptist. And her preacher loved to hop around and shout about hellfire and brimstone. We are looking at the Presbyterian or Methodist churches. Any opinions on that?
