In which David B may commit heresy

I suspect this is cultural heresy, but here goes:

I don’t believe that midweek activities for the youth are really all that helpful at encouraging church activity among said youth.

I’ll step into my asbestos suit now. Fire away.

Even more heresy.

I think AWANAS that is so popular among the Protestant/other Christian churches right now is a lot more useful. A whole lot.

And I think it is deplorable that 8-11 year old boys have activities every week and 8-11 year old girls only twice a month. Really encourages girls, especially when it seems the boys get a badge every time they fart and burp at the same time and the girls get basically nothing for anything.

I think our church could do a whole lot better with mid-week activities. Actually, it totally depends on who is in charge. When I was a Beehive the leader was not the greatest. The activities were stupid. When I was a MIA Maid and Laurel the leaders we had were awesome and a lot of girls who didn't come Sundays came on Wednesdays/Tuesdays (depending on the year) and would occasionally come Sundays, too. They really did encourage activity. When I was a Beehive I think some of the activities encouraged INactivity.
