We got a call yesterday afternoon from the grandmother of a 6th grade boy who has been coming to our church for about the past two years. He was one of Isaac’s classmates at Communit* Baptis* Schoo*. The 6th grader likes our church and wants to keep coming. I think he has developed relationships with other kids, has adults who love on him here (which he really needs in his life), and has become increasingly involved in our youth group.
But…grandma called to let us know that he wouldn’t be able to come back to church anymore. She apologized and said it wasn’t because he doesn’t want to.
Turns out the Principal of Isaac’s Old School – Com*unity Bap*ist Sch*ol pulled the grandmother aside and told her if her grandson wanted to return in the 7th grade to this school he needed to go to a “like-minded” baptist church and recommended one close to their home. So, he can’t come back anymore…
That church gives me a rash.
