No one is winning here. You both need to agree.

It's a party not a conversion ceremony!

Tricky. I'd say no but I see where you're coming from.

We're pagan, and frankly in our house it would be iffy. Generally speaking, we prefer for our children to only visit church activities with people we know very well, such as family members or very close friends. It would also depend on the denomination of the church.

Not a chance. My dd made a friend who is a Jehovah's Witness, I get that the girl in your post is probably a different denomination, but it still caused nothing but problems. They can have regular play dates that don't include church, friendship shouldn't involve church or attempted conversion IMO.

Which denominations would you allow ? Which would you forbid?

Why can't they do something together outside of church? We are both atheist as well. Kindergarten is too young to go with people you don't know to a church you don't know. It is an impressionable age. I'm with your husband on this one.
